Tiffany Studios New York "Plain Squares" Table Lamp

The plain squares pattern from Tiffany Studios features columns of amber glass rectangles, arranged with precision to mirror the intricate veining observed in insect wings. The fusion of structured geometry and natural inspiration in this design exemplifies Tiffany Studios' ability to infuse artistry into seemingly simple patterns. The lampshade is supported by a base skillfully emulating the hexagonal motif found on a tortoise shell. This particular pattern was commonly employed in Buddhist temples and the walls of Japanese castles. Given Tiffany’s appreciation for Japanese art, incorporating such a design element felt instinctive.
