|Meyda Tiffany was founded 30 years ago when Meyer Cohen was asked by
his wife Ida to build a stained glass window in their kitchen so they wouldn't have to look at the vintage cars in their neighbor's driveway. What began as a hobby evolved into America's leading and oldest manufacturer of Tiffany lamps and decorative lighting.
Today Meyda Tiffany is still a family-run business, with Meyer and Ida's son, Robert, at the helm. Many of Meyda Tiffany's lighting designs were inspired by the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Dirk Van Erp, Gustav Stickley, Philip Julius Handel, Pairpoint and Duffner & Kimberly Studios, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Some have been handcrafted of copperfoil and reverse-painted art glass, porcelain, jadestone, mica and other fine mediums.
Others were influenced by popular art movements: Arts and Crafts, Prairie, Lodge, Mission, Bungalow, Victorian, Nouveau, Gothic, Southwest and Deco.
