Glass as a material for the interior. Use of glass in combination with different styles
So, let's consider glass as a material for construction and design in different styles, replacing each other, and how gradually glass furniture began to pour into our life and environment.
In the early twentieth century, the introduction of glass into the atmosphereHouses takes their origins. In those days, a whole epoch was born in the art of decorating interior decorations. It was possible to observe the windows in the whole wall, the impressive size of the room with walls of pastel tones, almost without decorative design and half-empty rooms.
Geometry of forms.
In the middle of the twentieth century,Geometric shapes in the interior, but the glass still does not come out of fashion. Special demand in those days was used by small tables with a glass table top, resting on legs of wood or iron.
The naturalness of the tree.
Over time, when one style replacedAnother, the fashion changed, it becomes clear that the glass still occupied an honorable niche in the creation of an interior. For example, when the next style was replaced by a fashion for natural wood, the architects blended glass inserts very harmoniously into it, making all the interior decorations gain weightlessness, and as a whole there was a feeling of lightness and spaciousness. You could also see large windows from floor to ceiling, plafonds, tables, doors, high mirrors, which together with natural wood and bright space formed, so-called, classics in a modern way. In addition, the glass colored stained glass windows, which are a fashionable detail of modernity, which is relevant to this stage of style development, come back from the distant past.
Historical interiors. Vintage.
Modern interior designers alwaysAttracted ideas for decoration, taken from the history of the development of fashion and style. They tried to interpret them on the present, which led to the emergence of the "vintage" style. To review it is possible to take a table of glass on curved legs in the form of twigs from bronze. This could be seen in aristocratic palaces a hundred or two hundred years ago, together with fur carpets in the form of skins lying on the floor, or hanging on the wall. And now, such elegant elements and objects can be observed in some interiors, but in a slightly different form. And this, undoubtedly, adds its "zest".
Modern designers to create their ownInimitable interiors borrowed ideas also from ancient Rome. In those days, everything was made of marble. Actual at that time, the columns in architecture and buildings were repeated in furniture. For example, marble columns supported the countertops, as for the tables. This idea has also moved to the present, in combination with glass. The truth passed to a slightly different, semicircular, carved shape of glass legs supporting the tabletop, and having a clear kinship and resemblance to those same pillars of Ancient Rome. Initially, this table may seem quite primitive, but the grace and grandeur of the ancient forms is obvious, and looks very luxurious.
When fashion was dominated by the style of minimalism,The interior was rather simplified. Preference was no longer given to beauty, but to practicality and naturalness. Thanks to this style, it came to realize how great the combination of wood and metal along with the glass lines in the interior. And it is the absence of any additional decor maximally ennobles the forms.
With the advent of new technologies in the modern worldThe interior situation of the premises has become similar to the spacecraft of the new generation. Accordingly, designers and architects began to actively reflect the technical progress directly in their projects. A distinctive feature is the appearance of transparent ceilings, floors, ceilings, and not just doors and walls, as seen in the previous styles.
Thanks to this, the space visually increases, together with the window. Proceeding from this, furniture acquires transparency, thereby dissolving in the air.
With the passage of time, everything appears in the interior.More and more glass structures. These are shelves, racks, tables, and sinks, shower cabins, cabinet doors. Transparency of lines is present everywhere in the living room, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, on the balcony, in the corridor. All objects in contact with them seem weightless, frozen in the air, which gives a certain charm and spirit of modernity, filling the house with sunlight, rays, air, space. Surprisingly, designers are introducing glass furniture tables, shelves, doors, even in children's rooms, vouching for high security. Technologies of glass development in everyday life allow it to be so strong that the risk of broken furniture is minimized and practically impossible. This material is very durable, as it is hardened and it is made with smoothed edges, due to which, accordingly, safety is guaranteed.
In conclusion, it can be said that the influenceGlass furniture grows every year and the presence becomes traditional. The presence of this building material in its situation at home or at work and in other places speaks of its popularity, fashion and is even a sign of well-being. And, despite the fragility at first sight, glass furniture has already proved its great practicality and manufacturability, and I use it to design my own house, you can create an individual, unique and modern image.
