Stained Glass For A New Century

When people think stained glass it is natural for them to associate it with church decor. In fact is it somewhat synonymous with all sorts of religious institutions such as cathedrals, churches, synagogues and even mosques. The next likely association people make of stained glass is home decor from the victorian or craftsman eras of design. In fact, many people who own a home built in either of those time periods likely has a stained glass window (or even two or three) on their home. This is because, iconic designers like Frank Lloyd Wright and The Greene Brothers, during the first half of the 20th century, made a link in the minds of Americans between stained glass and home style rather than strictly adornments for churches. Since then, its popularity has only risen and is just as in vogue today than ever before. At Stained Glass Dallas, we are happy that each day we are able to continue the work of such design masters who had such a strong and lasting impact on the American home style we still see today.
