For this week’s trend, we are really digging the smoky glass! With a seductive dark palette, the following pieces showcase the effect of smoking glass to give a gorgeous finish. Here’s a few of our favorites…
Beautifully simple, the Shadows Pendent Lamp collection is made up of variously shaped glass shades that pay tribute to the classic atelier light. With clean lines that don’t take away from the sculptural nature of the pieces, these pendants give a modern touch to any space. We love the varying darkness of the hues, and the different shapes and sizes offered in this collection designed for the Czech lighting manufacturer BROKIS.
Now for a piece with a little more weight…why not try the smoky glass look on a coffee table? This mid-century modern table in a ‘G’ or Greek Key shape design features a glass top and smoke glass second tier shelf. The high shine chrome finish has a patina look that reminds us of the 1970s “Hollywood Regency” aesthetic. We love the two-tiered look and the dark finish to the second shelf gives this piece some drama and weight. Well done!
This beautiful design by Vlassa Kverhulst features a smoked glass that hides and separates the bath from the toilet area. We love how practical this is while creating a dramatic look that elevates this bathroom to high-end design. The honed limestone adds movement and organic pattern that contrasts well with the stark lines of the smoke glass. The orchids are a great touch to add lightness and femininity to such a seductively dark space.
From the Kips Bay Showhouse, these coffee tables in smoky glass and brass are divine! We love how perfect the vibrant coffee table art book contrasts with the dark smoke, and we love the variety of table bases offered by this collection. Differing heights of the table also add visual interest to the design and make these tables look like true works of art. The soft hues and texture of the rug also create beautiful contrast, solidifying our thoughts that this room was well-thought out and exquisitely put together.
This table from Propstars just looks like a party! We love the fantastic circular base and the way it pairs with the smoky glass circular top. This is such an exciting piece that we’d love to design a whole room around. The top of the table would look fabulous with plenty of beautiful books, a plant and a pop of color to create great contrast and focal point. A perfect table with a smoky glass finish.
