Now, there might be some of you reading who are scratching your heads and saying, “What exactly is this Mackintosh stained glass Colorado Springs homeowners are so crazy about?

We are referring to stained glass made in the style popularized by the iconic Scottish designer and architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Hence the name, Mackintosh stained glass. Mr. Mackintosh was at the height of his career in the first couple of decades of the twentieth century. Although he did many lovely stained glass windows as part of the buildings he designed – some of them still intact and being admired to this day – he might be best known for one particular design. The Glasgow Rose.

Mackintosh’s designs have stood the test of time. Here at Colorado Springs Stained Glass, we particularly admire Mackintosh’s ability to integrate different styles into his own, using simple geometrics and the free flowing lines of the Art Nouveau style, all in one stunning piece. Mackintosh stained glass, Colorado Springs homeowners have found, adds a unique elegance and classic beauty to their homes. This is probably one of the reasons for this style’s enduring popularity over the years.

Although many pieces of Mackintosh’s stained glass are still in existence, we do not copy his work line for line. Rather, we use it as an inspiration to create custom stained glass for you in the Mackintosh style.
