Contemporary Glass Designs by Etched & Carved Sans Soucie
At Sans Soucie Art glass, we’ve been creating contemporary decorative etched glass designs since our beginning! The look and feel of contemporary design in art and architecture has continued over the years to remain a popular and preferred design style. In our desert area, I would say it began to make a really major comeback starting about 7-8 years ago.
“Contemporary” is defined as “living or occurring at the same time” and “belonging to or occurring in the present”. I remember first seeing this design style in furniture and homes as I was growing up in the 70’s.
As degagefurniture.com puts it, “In furniture, modern or contemporary style basically evolved in the 20th century. Extraneous design and decorative accessories began to be phased out: ruffles, tassels, extra drawers, intricate carvings and the like were gone. Instead, designers began to focus on form and function and the new theory that less is more. Lines became cleaner, and designs became simpler. Furniture began to compliment a room rather than overwhelm it, and grew more and more functional to boot. Modern style’s pleasing design and practical advantages propelled the movement forward to the leading design trend that it remains today.”
I’m featuring a number of our most popular contemporary designs, as seen on our etched & carved door glass, window glass, showers, custom glass tables, and custom divider glass. These decorative glass designs can of course be modified to suit the size and style of any project.
If you’re interested in seeing more contemporary and/or geometric designs, be sure to take a look at our Geometric Designs Gallery in our Custom Designs Gallery. There are literally dozens more like this to see!
