The Peterlee Glass guide to ordering glass furniture

Wednesday 11th January, 2017

For contemporary elegance, a bespoke piece of beautiful glass furniture in the home is hard to beat.

But how do you go about commissioning and buying that unique piece for your home? Find out in our guide to ordering glass furniture…


Find your design inspiration

The first step to ordering glass furniture is getting a clear idea of exactly what it is you want. So do plenty of research into the styles you like and what you think will fit in with your home décor.

Consider where you want your glass furniture to go in your home and the purpose it will serve; will it be functional or purely decorative?

Think about the kind of glass you would like; Peterlee Glass recommend that glass furniture should always be made of toughened glass, ensuring it will be safe, hardwearing and durable and will stay looking good for many years to come. But there are innumerable design options for toughened glass.

Will you choose a bold design in painted glass? A delicate frosted pattern? Or opt for the pure simplicity of clear toughened glass?

There are thousands of websites to explore for design inspiration, so much so that it can be difficult to see the wood for the trees. A great place to start is Pinterest, where you can set up your own boards, follow other people’s boards and re-pin pictures of glass furniture designs you love.

In a similar vein, but dedicated purely to home design, is Houzz. You can create your own ‘ideabooks’ to save projects that inspire you.

Commissioning your glass furniture

Once you have an idea of the kind of glass furniture what you want, you can talk to a glass supplier like Peterlee Glass.

Some glass suppliers may require specific and precise CAD drawings of the glass furniture you are commissioning. For most people this could mean another costly step in the process, as you will have to find a CAD designer who can take your ideas and turn them into the necessary technical drawings.

However, commissioning glass furniture from Peterlee Glass isn’t nearly as complicated. We have dedicated design specialists, who can work with you to bring your ideas to life.
