We have designed a 4 watt squirrel cage LED lamp. This new step in LED technology uses an internal heat sink so the bulb does not differ in look from the vintage style bulbs which are so popular at the moment. It uses a new colour temperature 2200k so it is super warm white just like the filament squirrel cage lamps. It is also dimmable, we recommend using a low load dimmer and adding between 6-12 lamps on the circuit. To further discuss successfully dimming these new LED lamps please contact us. These squirrel cage LED bulbs are due into the UK late October and we are accepting pre orders now.

With many things in life trends seem to go full circle through out time, We feel the vast range of Tiffany fittings can tie in well to any modern home as well as keeping a classical and period home suited.
Tiffany glass refers to the many and varied types of glass developed and produced from 1878 to 1933 at the Tiffany Studios, by Louis Comfort Tiffany and a team of other designers.
In 1865, Tiffany traveled to Europe, and in London he visited the Victoria Albert Museum, whose extensive collection of Roman and Syrian glass made a deep impression on him. He admired the coloration of medieval glass and was convinced that the quality of contemporary glass could be improved upon. In his own words, the "Rich tones are due in part to the use of pot metal full of impurities, and in part to the uneven thickness of the glass, but still more because the glass maker of that day abstained from the use of paint".
Tiffany was an interior designer, and in 1878 his interest turned towards the creation of stained glass, when he opened his own studio and glass foundry because he was unable to find the types of glass that he desired in interior decoration. His inventiveness both as a designer of windows and as a producer of the material with which to create them was to become renowned. Tiffany wanted the glass itself to transmit texture and rich colors and he developed a type of glass he called Favrile.
