LAMPTASTIC, Turkish Style Lighting

 

 Turkish Style Lighting

How did it all start for us? Our journey started in Turkey, this is where it all began, completely mesmerized by the unique and total beauty of the Turkish Lamps.

I heard over and over again in all the shops, how can I get these home safely? and this being the main reason that deterred people from purchasing them.

So once I arrived home, I worked hard to find a work with a manufacturer, I could work with and trust to deliver the results I was looking for, which was 100% satisfaction. This took many weeks of research and meetings to be completely sure that they would be able to deliver what I and you wanted, which in essence is what we pay for, a beautiful Turkish Lamp.

Tiffany made subtle changes to the production process and also tweaked the look of the glass itself to set them apart from their Byzantine progenitors then launched the new product in 1893 to a rapturous reception from consumers on both sides of the Atlantic.
