Most Popular Houston Stained Glass Styles:
Prairie Style, as popularized by the famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Its defining characteristics include natural earthy colors and small geometric designs incorporating chevrons, circles or small patterns of squares.

Mackintosh Style, as inspired by the Scottish architect and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh. If you are not familiar with Mr. Mackintosh, he was a water-colorist who specialized in florals. This style of stained glass has a strong Art Nouveau flavor, lovely colors, and frequently incorporates floral designs.

Celtic Style, originating in our native Scotland, is filled with intriguing Celtic knots and interlacing patterns. Traditional Celtic art is famous not just for its ornate spirals and patterns but for its complex symbolism. The intertwined lines and knots symbolized the ancient Celts’ beliefs about eternal life, heaven and earth.
