Stained Glass Benefits
Mission style stained glass is known for its simplistic clean lines with just a few bright colors. Frequently it is a mix of mostly clear glass, with the pattern of earth tones or bright jewel tones scattered in.
The idea behind this particular style of architecture and décor is that this simplistic style allows your already existing decor to stand out. Mission style is said to have emerged as a reaction against the excesses of Victorian times. In furniture, it is known for simple horizontal and vertical lines and flat panels that accentuate the grain of the wood. It’s also known as the Craftsman style, and Mission style architecture is typically found in Craftsman style bungalows. It is sometimes associated with famed American Architect Frank Lloyd Wright, although there were many other artists and architects during that same time period who created lovely work in the Mission style.
