Custom Stained Glass Accents for Your Furniture
Adding custom stained glass windows and doors to your home is a classic and elegant way to make a beautiful and dramatic statement of style. Stained glass doors can greet your visitors and introduce them to your personality and tastes. Stained glass windows can transform the play of light inside your home into a dynamic and colorful presence.
If you love the look of stained glass but are running out of windows and doors (or if you’re just more reserved with your invitations and statements), then take stained glass off the walls and into new areas in your design plans. A CustomMade artisan near you can incorporate custom stained glass inserts into your furniture and create dazzling, unique accents for your home.
Imagine pulling back this mahogany dining chair with stained glass inserts to seat a guest at your table. A trail of color and light will accompany your gesture. Rahn Woodworking & Design can also create these mahogany, lacewood, blued metal, and glass pieces as armchairs at your request.
Don’t forget some pieces of furniture have doors as well. Consider adding a greeting to your cabinet doors with stained glass panels. According to Mark Granfors of Laughing Loon Custom Furniture, Inc., this flame birch CD/DVD cabinet “seems to draw a lot of attention whenever someone enters the room.” It features Arts and Crafts style inspired glass panels with a floral motif. The green of the doors against the vibrant figured flame birch seems to give the cabinet the appearance of breathing or opening, just like the flower bulbs in the design.
Pulling your furniture away from the walls can help you create new points of interest in any room. If your furniture has stained glass accents, you can add a new play of light to a room, too. Place this oak bed with stained glass panels by JMT Designs towards the center of your bedroom or near a window and you’ll benefit from a natural alarm clock when the morning light shines through the headboard.
Stained glass is a sensible yet stylish choice for a custom lampshade. These Mission style chestnut stained glass lamps by FWC Woodworking would make wonderful accents either on or off, but with the light shining through they can bring the beauty of stained glass to any room.
