Meyda Tiffany was founded when Meyer Cohen and his wife Ida decided to build stained glass wondows. This hobby turned into a leading manufacturer of Tiffany lamps and decorative lighting.
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 products today.
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.
With dealers across the U.S. and Canada, Meyda offers an extensive line featuring thousands of styles-- from accent pieces to masterpieces. 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.
