MEYDA TIFFANY
A STORYBOOK HISTORY...

         
  Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2014, 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 custom and decorative lighting.

Today Meyda is still a family-run business, with the Cohens' son, Robert, at the helm. As the business grew and evolved, and in an effort to lower costs to create Tiffany styled products that were more affordable for a broader market, we developed strong cooperative relationships with several small handicraft workshops overseas. Meyda designers work very closely with these stained glass studios to maintain the high level of quality that you have come to expect from us.

Nearly two decades ago, Meyda Tiffany 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 in the early 1900s. We utilize QBG's original tools, molds and techniques to create nostalgic lighting products today. In the mid-1990s, Meyda purchased Mecco Art, a metal art studio, and utilizes its equipment and manufacturing techniques to produce spectacular custom crafted lighting and décor under the Meyda Custom Lighting brand.

Under the Meyda Lighting brand, thousands of decorative styles are offered through fine dealers in the and many designs are inspired by the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Dirk Van Erp, Gustav Stickley, and other masters, as well as the Arts and Crafts, Rustic, Gothic, Revival and Contemporary themes. Our extensive line includes table and floor lamps, ceiling pendants, chandeliers, outdoor lighting, wall sconces, stained glass windows, fireplace screens, billiard/kitchen island fixtures, novelty items, and more.

Meyda continues to implement one of the industry's most extensive product development programs.
