“Beauty is what nature has lavished upon us as a supreme gift.”

Louis Comfort Tiffany, son of founder Charles Lewis Tiffany, followed his own path to success, achieving worldwide renown for his luminous designs. When he became Tiffany’s first official design director in 1902, he established the Tiffany Artistic Jewelry department in the Fifth Avenue store where his jewelry and precious objects were manufactured.

Louis Comfort Tiffany was a world leader of the Art Nouveau movement. He is revered for his fanciful jewelry as well as his stained glass lamps and windows that brighten museums, banks, hospitals, hotel lobbies and more.
