Custom Mackintosh designs

Are you a fan of the beautiful stained glass work of Scottish architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh? This iconic architect not only designed buildings, both inside and out, including the furnishings and the artwork, he was also an accomplished watercolorist and even designed his own font!

But for those of us here at Kansas City Stained Glass, it is his stunning stained glass windows that really inspire and impress. With custom designed Mackintosh stained glass, Kansas City residents can get some of this gorgeous art right in their own homes.

Of course, we aren’t talking about Mackintosh’s originals, but rather his particular stained glass style. Our designers use it as inspiration to create custom designs for you that have the look and feel of Mackintosh’s stained glass work.

When it comes to Mackintosh stained glass, Kansas City fans are most familiar with his iconic design that has come to be called the Glasgow Rose. (Mackintosh hailed from Glasgow.) This stylized red rose is frequently done on a clear or frosted background, making the rose itself the focal point of the stained glass piece. His distinctive stained glass style was seen not just in windows but in dramatic lighting fixtures as well. Mackintosh took his inspiration from the natural world.

It’s a classic traditional style of stained glass that we really love to create.
