GlassOfVenice.com, the company specializing in finest imported authentic Murano Glass from Venice, Italy, is expanding its selection of Venetian chandeliers with a range of contemporary models. Just in time for all your summer renovation and design projects, GlassOfVenice now offers a variety of handcrafted blown Murano Glass chandeliers in various designs and colors to fit any interior décor theme and style.
Murano Glass chandeliers have been crafted on Murano island near Venice since early 1700’s and to this day remain some of the most labor-intensive and artistic pieces made on the Island. Elaborate flowers, leafs, beautiful curves, and fascinating shapes define classic Murano Glass chandeliers and require fantasy, talent and skill that few, even on Murano, possess. Peek inside the windows of the Grand Canal palazzos at night as you pass by in a vaporetto or gondola, and you will see grand Murano Glass chandeliers gleaming in all their glory. You can only imagine the romantic picture from centuries ago when each chandelier was lit with myriad of candles delighting the costume-clad masked nobility during the grand Venetian balls. Today, every palazzo along the Grand Canal and many upscale residences around the world proudly display Murano Glass chandeliers, the only ones where art and utility combine so perfectly.
While Murano Glass chandeliers traditionally sport lots of elaborate tiers, floral designs and opulent gold decorative details, modern times have brought different tastes and demands. Murano artists and artisans have been challenged to step away from the classic time-tested designs and create leaner, trendier chandeliers for modern residences. And, as so many times throughout the history of Venetian glass-making, they rose up to the challenge and reinvented their craft, making beautiful blown glass chandeliers in a range of contemporary styles and colors. Modern living spaces with their bold color schemes, use of straight forms and minimalist designs greatly benefit from these airy chandeliers in rich hues, which serve both as a design accent and as a wonderful warm source of light.
Glass of Venice is proud to offer its customers contemporary chandelier series, which are not so easy to find outside of Venice. The company’s spokesperson shares: "we strive to be at the forefront of trends and artistic preferences of our global customer base and offer the very best in Murano Glass both in classic fashion and in step with the modern times. To this end, we worked hard to forge close relationships with several glassworks on Murano where masters possess the artistic taste, aptitude, and experience required to create beautiful yet fashion-forward Venetian chandeliers." The company has already put a number of new chandelier models onto its website and will continue adding new contemporary designs in the coming months.
GlassOfVenice is a U.S.-based company specializing solely in direct import and worldwide distribution of authentic Murano Glass. The company was founded by a team of visionary professionals with passion for Italian art and appreciation of Venetian artistic heritage, which survives in Murano Glass. GlassOfVenice imports all its products directly from Venice and offers the full range of Murano Glass.
