As you probably well know, stained glass is fairly ubiquitous to cathedrals, churches, synagogues and even mosques. Another common association is–the victorian or craftsman eras of design. As such, anyone who owns a home built in either of those time periods probably has one or more stained glass window in their house already. This is because, during the first half of the 20th century, iconic designers like Frank Lloyd Wright or Greene and Greene connected home decor to stained glass in a way that is still in vogue today.
