Glass Furniture Lines

This Transparent Furniture Collection Embodies Sophisticated Design

— July 11, 2016 — Art & Design
Designed for furniture makers 'Tonelli Design,' this glass furniture line would be the perfect fit for a modern home.

The collection was designed by Cristina Celestino and is entitled 'Opalina' -- a play on the world "opaline," which once referred to the "off-white rose color" of crystals but now refers to any type of translucent or semi-translucent glass. The collection includes a dresser, a stool, a desk and a large circular mirror -- all of which are made up of or incorporate mostly glass elements. The dresser and table each comes with a mirror, while the collection's standalone mirror is enveloped by a sculptural shroud of glass.

This transparent glass furniture line represents home design in a way not usually seen. Opalina would make a good decorative addition to clean minimalist homes.
Trend Themes
1. Transparent Furniture - The use of transparent furniture in home design is a growing trend, opening doors for designers to experiment with new materials and forms.
2. Opaline Glass - The use of opaline glass in furniture design is a trend that is gaining popularity, creating opportunities for glass manufacturers to explore new products and finishes.
3. Sculptural Furniture - Sculptural furniture is becoming increasingly trendy, inspiring furniture makers to create unique and functional designs that blur the line between the functional and the artistic.
Industry Implications
1. Home Decor and Furniture - The home decor and furniture industry is ripe for disruption with the trend of transparent and sculptural furniture designs, presenting opportunities for new players to enter the market with fresh ideas.
2. Glass Manufacturing - The trend of using opaline glass in furniture design presents an opportunity for glass manufacturers to expand their product offerings and explore new finishes and textures.
3. Interior Design - The trend of transparent and sculptural furniture designs is changing the way interior designers approach home design, requiring them to think beyond traditional materials and furniture forms.
