    Is there any way to get a close-up of the lower stained glass window? I'd like to get something like that made but can't see a lot of the detail.

    These are the original wood floors of the house, from 1915. The main body is red oak, the boarder is walnut and maple. The stain used was Jacobean from Minwax

    Wow, those are so unique! They almost look like woven baskets. So cool. Kind of reminds us of our Fireball pendants.

Elements of Style added this to Flying Colors: Stained Glass Through the Ages to TodayApr 5, 2013

Stained glass in the 13th century flourished as Gothic churches grew in popularity. The immense windows allowed for a more complex design approach. Red and blue were still the main colors of choice, but the backgrounds became darker. The stories became more complex and sequential, with the borders more formal and elaborate. A technique called flashed glass became prevalent during this time. To prevent glass from being opaque, glaziers fused a thin layer of dark colored hot glass to a thick layer of hot clear glass. The stained glass in this historic 19th-century Queen Anne–style home is just stunning.

Historic windows are often wholly unique, like this elaborate stained-glass entry in a historic Chicago home. It's unlikely to find similar windows in today's newly built houses.

Light the way to responsible living. The homeowners of this Queen Anne–style home in Chicago's trendy Lincoln Park neighborhood are doing their part in creating a more environmentally friendly future, and it shows in their decor choices. Case in point: Their entryway's honeycomb pendant lights by Gray Pant are handmade in Seattle from salvaged corrugated cardboard.

Edelmann had worked for the couple before. "The homeowners like to keep things clean and sleek so that there's not a lot of fluff cluttering their home," she says. They kept the beautiful original hardwood flooring — a white oak with an ebony and walnut stain. The unique light fixture in the entryway is made of molded corrugated cardboard.
