||Thirty years ago, Meyda Tiffany was founded when
Meyer Cohen was asked by his wife Ida (whose names were combined into the
company name Meyda) 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.
More than a decade ago, Meyda acquired Quality Bent Glass Company which
created original lighting fixtures, including the famous Coca-Cola chandeliers,
and supplied them to Tiffany Studios in New York City, during the turn-of-the-century.
Meyda utilizes QBG's original tools, molds and techniques to create lighting
In the mid-1990s, Meyda purchased Mecco Art, a metal art studio, and utilizes
its equipment and manufacturing techniques to produce the Old Forge line
of custom crafted steel sculptured lighting and decor. The line, which features
original, natural and wildlife themes, includes lamps, chandeliers, figurines,
candleholders, towel racks, bookends, switch plates, coat racks, napkin
holders, log holders, fireplace screens, and other home accents.
Today Meyda is still a family-run business, with Meyer and Ida's son, Robert,
at the helm. With dealers across the U.S. and Canada, Meyda offers an extensive
line featuring thousands of styles-- from accent pieces to masterpieces.
Many of Meyda'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.
The firm's extensive line includes table and floor lamps, ceiling pendants,
flush and semi-flush mounted ceiling fixtures, chandeliers, wall sconces,
windows, fireplace screens, furniture, and more. With one of the industry's
most extensive new product development programs, Meyda creates scores of
new designs weekly.
