Two blown glass pendant lights add a pop of whimsy to this contemporary dining room featuring traditional chairs with a modern all-white finish. Abstract art and a glass wine rack add further character to the eclectic loft setting.
Custom blown glass pendants balance the raw character of the live-edge dining table. Two-toned teal dining chars add a splash of color to the otherwise neutral dining room. White wainscoting echoes the geometric pattern of the second-floor railing.
A crisp, classic black and white color palette in the foyer sets the tone for the rest of the home, which also boasts traditional color pairings. The blue and white blown glass chandelier is an unexpected choice that adds some whimsy to the entryway.
Blown glass art hanging from the ceiling immediately draws the eye in this stylish sitting room. Barrel shaped sconces are mounted on wall panels over looking the sitting space. Four matching leather chairs with diamond patten finish look in on this unique and textural coffee table with 3D metal middle.
In this distinct kitchen design by Susan Serra, the brushed metal table and glass countertops are counterbalanced by the warmth of wood cabinets, hardwood floors and distinct color accents. The gorgeous hand-blown cobalt blue pendants, with natural imperfections, are scene stealers and add artisan appeal to a contemporary setting. "Natural materials in lighting fixtures such as reclaimed wood and distressed metals also add that authentic element we crave," says Serra. "Imperfections are desired and coveted...in context, of course!"
Tones of metallic silver and gold create a space that's rich and elegant. Materials mix to bring nuance and depth -- from the blown-glass lamp to the upholstered, hammered headboard and the scrollwork wallpaper.
A bight red, orange and yellow stained glass figure hangs above this sitting room for a bold, eye catching conversation piece. Below it the dark color scheme of the room creates a soothing, lounge environment, a nice contrast to the bright connected room. Black leather chairs with diamond pattern finish face into a coffee table with a full bar set up on the wall behind them.
The Venetian glass tiles around the connecting bath mantel are original. A salvaged wooden panel found in Paris was painted in a neutral tone, which highlights the watery greens and contemporary blown glass vases.
A cascade of hand blown glass lighting really fills up the tall vertical space and looks magical in the evening. The glass ball on the newel post was outfitted with an LED light and comes on each night when it gets dark.
This stair design is appropriately scaled to the space and makes excellent use of the natural light.
This winding staircase wraps around an ornate hand-blown glass chandelier before reaching a glass floor, which covers an indoor pond. LED lights illuminate the space with a soft blue glow for an underwater feel.
This beautiful display cabinet with cast bronze hardware houses the homeowner's collection of blown glass from around the world. The designer likes the juxtaposition of different materials, seen here with the weathered bronze metal and the sleek colorful glass.
Three components of modern terrariums are simplicity, scale and minimalism, says Jeffrey Schneider of Jeffrey Terrariums, who creates terrariums of hand-blown glass. In this woodland-themed terrarium, he used pincushion moss (Leucobryum albidum), Rabbit's foot fern (Phlebodium aureum), reindeer moss (Cladonia rangiferina), Selaginella kraussiana, and succulents such as Peperomia prostrata. Acorns, twigs and leaves are sterilized to prevent pests and diseases.
