Glass has 5 millenniums of companionship with us. It has been both praised and disparaged for its mystical charms and beauty. It’s sophisticated, highly adaptable and yet durable. Those who were bent towards its beauty, made jewels and ornaments of it and those who were confused, attributed different omens and superstitions to it.
Nevertheless, in modern age glass has turned out to be the biggest source of home decorations and office furnishings. Let’s see latest glass decoration trends being followed in interior designs.

Modern use of glass isn’t limited to jewels and ornaments only. Glass these days is being used for much more than simply making jewelry. It’s widely being used in interior design to lighten up homes and workplaces and hotels.
Common home glass decorations include vases, jars, cups, sculptures, photo frames and other beautiful bottles, bowls and cups etc. On the other hand, corporate buildings use glass interiors rather more expensively. Full glass covered elevators, glass stair cases, glass crannies, glass furniture and room dividers etc, aren’t any new for our sights.
