The use of stained glass can be traced back to the 7 th Century in Britain. Over time techniques developed and its use in religious buildings increased. Many churches built during the Medieval period included stained glass in their windows.
Windows layered in color add ambience—and privacy—to a reading nook. Leaded and colored glass doors built into a buffet, sparkling glass sidelights flanking a front door, richly hued panels of glass filtering light as it streams through a window transom—stained glass was a favorite accent throughout homes built in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Stained glass was practical, too, performing many functions, from obscuring an unattractive outdoor feature to hiding the contents of an interior cabinet.
