Avoid The Pad Vortex: Lampshade

Louis Tiffany blessed the world with his beautiful stained-glass lampshades in the late 19th and early 20th century. In fact, he was Art Nouveau personified. For years, his legacy has been cherished by collectors, bringing astronomical $8M prices at auctions and decorating the parlours of the bourgeois.
It's easy to understand why he was such a beloved artisan, revolutionizing the aesthetic world - but it gets to be a little much when a shrine is built to him in a Levittown kitchen through the wonders of Contact Paper and Sears fixtures.
