Sliding doors can work in a wide range of architectural styles and configurations, including a curved opening like the one shown here. “Sliding glass walls offer more flexibility in configuration than folding glass walls. Sliding glass panels stack or disappear into a pocket when open, opening up living spaces to the outdoors,” says Ximena Rojas, Marketing Director for Panda Windows & Doors.
The "limestone" in this shower is actually a porcelain lookalike that's less expensive and easier to maintain. The medallion is composed of marble, mosaic tile and natural limestone. The splurge here, says designer Carolyn Thomas, is the curved glass chamber and two-way hinged door that keeps water inside after showering.
The chef is never far from the grill or the company while cooking in this luxurious outdoor kitchen. The natural tones of the beautiful ledgestone bar and granite counter top work handsomely with the espresso, woven wicker barstools and stunning glass tile backsplash.
The glass door shower in this contemporary bathroom features large tile walls, a built-in shelf and maneuverable stainless steel shower head. From the shower you can view the floating vanity with vessel sink illuminated by matching sconces around the mirror. The black tile floor contributes to the masculine feel of the design while a curved accent wall adds a smooth element to the sharp design.
A three paneled built in bookshelf offers useful and organized storage space. Windows circling the room let natural light stream over the pair of matching curved sofas with patterned decorative pillows. A traditional glass coffee table sits over a neutral patterned rug and patterned cushioned chairs finish out the space.
The curving glass walls of this modern Switzerland home tie the sleek interiors with the surrounding courtyard and offer views of beautiful Lake Lugano and surrounding mountains. The house is designed by architect Milan Jacopo Mascheroni.
Wood cabinets create a polished frame for this kitchen design. A curved island with neutral granite countertop adds nice shape against the sharp lines of the cabinetry and creates an eat in space. Gray leather cushion upholstery on the wood bar chairs pulls from the cool tones in the countertop. A stainless steel range adds a modern finish over the stovetop.
The curving glass walls of this Lugano, Switzerland, home showcase a view of sleek, whitewashed interiors and custom, modern furnishings. The house, designed by architect Milan Jacopo Mascheroni, comprises a U-shaped glass pavilion on a terraced floor. The surrounding hardscape echoes its curves.
These curved glass walls have a magic trick in store: They're motorized and, when open, stack behind the solid wall to open up the living room completely to the outdoors. When the late afternoon sun is at its hottest, custom sheer panels can be lowered to reduce glare.
