New York City Stained Glass Windows by Scottish Stained Glass
Diversity of Design Culture in New York City
New York City is considered to be the cultural capital of the world. It is an important center for international affairs as well as a significant influence upon architecture, finance, media, art, fashion, global commerce, education, technology, entertainment, and design. New York City tourists and residents are extremely diverse, as is the noteworthy architecture that decorates the city. The buildings of the city vary in styles ranging from Gothic, Art Deco, and International. Even classical influences can be found in residential areas. Scottish Stained Glass has the ability to create unique pieces of handcrafted art that are just as diverse as New York City because all of our stained glass windows are custom designs. Whether your window is square, rectangular, circular, octagonal, big, or small we can create a design that both fits the window and your personal taste. We have worked with stained glass windows that were inspired from design styles and architects including Prairie Style, Art Deco, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Celtic, Art Nouveau, Greene & Greene, and Mission.
Restoring New York’s Historic Stained Glass One Church at a Time
New York City is home to some of the most exquisite churches in the nation, with complex architectural designs and elaborate stained glass windows. These windows have been meticulously crafted with a dexterity almost beyond comprehension, and are hailed by the stained glass community as some of the greatest masterpieces of all time.
Unfortunately, because of their age, subtle signs of wear are now starting to appear on these magnificent, yet increasingly fragile compositions. The degradation of stained glass begins slowly, with the first signs, such as peeling paint and subtle discoloration, being almost undetectable. However, as the degeneration progresses, cracks and gapes begin to emerge, pieces fall out, and the window is in dire need of restoration.
At Scottish Stained Glass, we know how to work swiftly and carefully to address these concerns. Our team works with care and precision to repair antique windows that are suffering from a decline in health, and restore them back to their original beauty. As a stained glass company that specializes in historic preservation, we’re well versed in the techniques required for performing delicate operations on church stained glass. We are prepared to go to any means to keep your church’s beloved art in tact.
If you are in need of stained glass restoration for your New York City church, we would be overjoyed to assist. To speak to a representative about your needs, please contact our office.
Areas of Your New York City Home to Benefit from Stained Glass
The homes, businesses, and churches of New York City are all places where Scottish Stained Glass can be applied. If your bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, or entryway windows are too close to your neighbors or the street and you want more privacy without losing any natural light, stained and leaded glass windows are a perfect, affordable, and aesthetically pleasing solution. In the photograph at the top of this page there is another home built only 8 feet away. You can see the reddish color of the brick through our leaded glass window but our clients achieved the privacy they desired and do not have to look at the side of the building next door each time they walk up and down the stairs. Many New York homes have a similar arrangement and can benefit from stained glass or leaded glass. Stained glass can be elegantly integrated into a retail shop or restaurant’s décor by treating it as signage, spatial dividers, or a hanging piece. There are countless ways which Scottish Stained Glass can be used to improve the quality of a space, both residentially and commercially.

New York City Church Stained Glass Window Design & Repair
If you have stained glass windows in your New York City church that need cleaning or repair, our restoration process can make them look brand new again and rejuvenate their appearance. We are happy to partner with churches of all denominations and religions and are also willing to meet with board groups or members of the church to discuss plans. Or, if you’re in the midst of relocating or expanding and are constructing a new church, we would love to be part of the process. Stained glass has been prominently featured in churches for hundreds of years and contemporary churches who carry on the tradition are preserving an important part of history. We will work closely with you to create stained glass windows for your sanctuary, altar furniture, entrance, or transoms that reflect your church’s value and message.
Design, Manufacture and Installation
Our extensive and thorough design process allows us to communicate with you over the phone, through mail, and via computers. After the design process has been completed the glass is manufactured in one of our local studios or at our national headquarters in Denver, Colorado. The glass is very easy to install and we work with clients to determine whether this is something they can accomplish themselves or whether we need to help you or even come to your home anywhere within the state of New York and carry out the installation ourselves. All of these steps ensure that your custom stained glass window design and installation process goes smoothly no matter your location. We look forward to working with you on your stained glass project soon!
