Stained Glass San Antonio
At Stained Glass San Antonio, we sometimes get so excited about certain projects that we can’t help but want to share the details. Oftentimes, these projects are very extensive, time consuming, and sometimes extremely complicated, but are also incredibly rewarding. During the past twenty five years that we’ve been in business, we’ve had the opportunity to be a part of some incredible stained glass restorations, many of which turned out even better than we originally expected. One of our favorite projects that we’ve been able to be a part of was stained glass restoration for the First United Methodist Church in Del Rio Texas.

Mid-Century Modern Stained Glass
The term mid-century modern refers specifically to architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century (1933 to 1965). The style itself is characterized by its clean lines both straight and curved, bold graphic patterns and use of high contrast colors. When it comes to stained glass it often means glass that pulls from architectural designers like Frank Lloyd Wright or other notable designers from a design style including prairie and Art Nouveau. Some purists may argue against including other designs styles from early 20th century under the umbrella of mid-century modern, in our experience these design styles hold a certain undeniable mid-century charm that works for this application.
The pattern below is a great example of what you can expect with a mid-century modern stained glass window for your San Antonio home.
This window, done in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, is the epitome of mid-century beauty using beautiful and bold straight lines with strong leading and beautiful pops of color. The best part about this style is it will match beautifully with nearly any style of existing decor too!
