Authentic Art Deco Stained Glass Designs

Characterized by complex linear patterns and alluring geometrical designs, Art Deco stained glass windows are glamorous and unique. For decades, art lovers have been drawn to the ultra modern aesthetic and bold colors showcased by this avante-garde style. Art Deco stained glass is the perfect way to make a statement and show off your sophisticated sense of style.

An unconventional use of shape and color gives Art Deco stained glass its striking beauty. Art Deco designs demand and deserve attention. Thick, dark lines are beautifully paired with bright, delicate colored glass, creating a gorgeous contrast. The ornate design and colorful appearance of this style makes it an excellent option for brightening up white walls and empty spaces and creating a curated look in your home.

At Scottish Stained Glass, we’ve had huge success over the years in creating our own version of Art Deco stained glass. Our designs are authentic and unique, with no two being exactly alike. After years of studying this art form, we’ve mastered the skills and techniques required to execute it with absolute precision.

Colorful, Light-Filled Art Deco Designs

Art Deco stained glass windows are as beautiful as they are functional. The use of bold, rich colors gives them the ability to create privacy and block views from the outside. Simultaneously, light pours in through the sections containing clear and lighter colored glass. Colored glass pieces can be arranged in such a way that they block views from a specific angle or in a certain spot where privacy is needed. In this way, they are a practical choice as well as a stylish one. 

At Scottish Stained Glass, we can create a beautiful Art Deco stained glass window for any room of your home. Our unique designs are the perfect option for brightening up bathrooms, kitchens, and entryways while also adding coveted privacy.

History of Art Deco Stained Glass

Art Deco was a popular international art design movement from 1925 until the 1940s, affecting the decorative arts such as architecture, interior design and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as fashion, painting, the graphic arts and film. At the time, this style was seen as elegant, glamorous, functional and modern. Art Deco is known for its decorative linear symmetry as well as its mathematical and geometric roots.

Born of optimism in the 1920’s and continuing into the 1930’s, the Art Deco movement featured architecture and artwork with sleek lines and a modern, futuristic look. The largest cities of the world were caught up in this movement which quickly spread around the globe. In the United States, the most recognizable example is the Chrysler Building in New York. The curved and chevron shapes in Art Deco lend themselves nicely to creating patterns in stained glass.

Influences & Popularity

Art Deco is a mixture of many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism, Art Nouveau, and Futurism. It has also been heavily influenced by archaeological expeditions which led to the discoveries such as ancient Egyptian and Aztec forms. Although many design movements have political or philosophical roots or intentions, Art Deco was purely decorative.

Its popularity peaked in Europe during the “Roaring Twenties” and continued strongly in the United States through the 1930s. There was a decline in popularity because of the mass production of the Art Deco style. However, in the 1960s it’s popularity began to come back. Later, in the 1980s, it made another strong resurgence because of an increasing interest in graphic design.
