Who do you make the fabric with laminated glass? - This is a wonderful idea! Can the fabric be changed from time to time? How do you laminate the material behind the glass? I would like to change the picture according to the seasons. Thanks so much!

This concept could even replace the fridge as the family photo wall...change out with the seasons w/different wall hangings...ideas are endless!

Stunning. This was made by Bendheim Architectural Glass. I wonder how much cost. http://www.bendheimarchitectural.com/gallery-detail.cfm?project_id=127

I wouldn't recommend it. We have had problems at sinks.

Don't see why it would be a problem: everything just has to be sealed properly, like any other material - tile, etc.

I have done some searching on the Internet and unable to find someone here in the US that does this. Could you share who you utilized? It is an absolutely wonderful idea that could change any space.

What is the process through which you adhere the fabric to the glass? What is lamination and how is it done? - Thank you.

patel - I'm no expert, but go to an art shop for assistance; they should be able to sell you an adhesive for fabric, such as "Spraymount," and then you simply follow the instructions. Maybe practice on some old bits of fabric and glass first, though, to perfect your skills.
I've done it, and it's pretty simple :)

The proper (passes safety code) way to laminate fabric to glass can be done a couple different ways. One is to invest in an EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) autoclave. The other, more economical way, is to use a polyester resin.

The stained oak, are the cabinets from a supplier ( do they come in that color / wood option?) or are they custom and then stained ? If the former, which company are they from and if the later, yes, please...which stain? Beautiful and soft!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Think this backsplash is a tile mosaic? Look closer. It's actually fabric covered with glass — so much easier, more affordable and unexpected.
Stuart and his team transformed what he describes as a staid kitchen into an invigorating space, by incorporating a Josef Frank fabric into the mix.The idea began when Black requested custom pillows covers made of the Josef Frank fabric. But after seeing the pattern, Stuart knew that the pillows couldn't hold the scale of the pattern. "Instead we encased the fabric in glass and used it as a backsplash," he says. "We had never done it before. It just makes the kitchen so stunning and memorable."
Architect Drew Stuart of Incorporated and his team thought way outside the box by pairing a Josef Hoffman fabric with this kitchen stove. "We encased the fabric in glass and used it as a backsplash," says Stuart. "We had never done it before. It just makes the kitchen in this already stunning original home that much more memorable."More:My Houzz: Quirky and Collected Portland Apartment12 Amazing Reuses for Quirky Vintage Items
Fabric BacksplashDesigner Drew Stuart placed his client's favorite Josef Frank fabric between two pieces of architectural glass above this stove. "My client was delighted that we used her favorite fabric — and surprised that it found a home in the kitchen," he says. "Now the kitchen has all this color and energy, just like the rest of the house."
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Fabric: The Unsung Wall-Decorating Hero
Fabric that is laminated behind glass makes a memorable and fabulous backsplash. Imagine doing this with an heirloom family textile, or to repeat a fabric used on curtains or upholstery elsewhere in the room. Laminated fabrics, usually used for projects like tablecloths, umbrellas and handbags, can also be applied to the wall, but they aren’t appropriate for applications like this unless they’re secured behind glass. I hope some of these ideas have inspired you, and that the next time you need something unusual but brilliant on your wall, you’ll think of textiles.More: Hang a TapestryShow us: Have you created or decorated with handmade textiles? We’ll love to see a photo in the Comments below.
Fred Albert added this to The Future of Backsplashes
How about textiles? Here an exotic piece of fabric was laminated between sheets of glass for use as a backsplash.
When a homeowner wanted a seamless backsplash that also had a bold pattern, Incorporated came up with the idea of covering fabric with glass.Now it’s your turn. Upload those photos, floor plans and ideas below.
