Meyda Tiffany was founded when Meyer Cohen was asked by his wife Ida, whose names were combined to create 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 manufacturing leader of custom and decorative lighting.
Today Meyda continues to operate as a family-run business, with the Cohens' son, Robert, at the helm and grandsons Max and Chester by his side. The Meyda family of companies has evolved and is based in a 144,000 square foot corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility in Upstate New York.
Meyda family roots date back to supplying original lighting designs to Tiffany Studios in New York City during the early 1900s. The Meyda Tiffany brand features art glass classics and original designs utilizing the famous copperfoil construction process; many are produced in overseas factories.
