    I've been looking at Tiffany-style stained glass lamps on Amazon.

    Is this tacky, or beautiful?

    It also depends on the interior, and where to put them.

    My advice: don't overdo it. Because you don't want people to say "gosh, that looks...interesting".

    I like this one. In general I'm not a fan of the ones on faux branches/trees but this one is beautiful. I love stained glass. My parents used to make terrariums and stained glass lamps not unlike these. It's actually not that hard and a very nice hobby.

    Aha, now I see where the inspiration came from.

    This one came today -- it looks perfect in my amber cedar-paneled dining room with the new rug.

    The lamp is actually cuter and prettier than the photo (and no buyer's remorse with either the lamp or the rug, so maybe I made the right purchases!) :

    I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a Tiffany lamp that was tacky.

    Well, it's Tiffany-style. If it was real Tiffany it would have cost five times what I paid for it!

    See I like them... but they have to make sense in the room I think. Fit with all the other bits and bobs.

    I worked in the lighting/electrical department at a certain orange-themed home improvement store during a grievous period of grad school impoverishment and I recall we sold a lot of those Tiffany-style lamps with the dragonfly motif. That was the late-1990s, and though I don't see them for sale at that place any more (they seem to prefer flimsy-looking plastic stuff with no character), it's nice to see some classic styles never fall out of favor.

    Yes, it's amazing how just the right lamp in just the right spot can totally affect a room.

    Does the base have a separate light installed in it? Those types are often more attractive with the base lit up than the upper portion (under the shade). The only worry is that the bulb in such a base will need to be CFS or something that won't get so volcanically hot when sealed up in the base.
