Furniture: Glas, Italia

Classic Italian and modern sensibilities.

Good morning! This weekend, I am inspired by so many things, but one especially, color. I came across Glas, as you see, while enjoying the most recent issue of Wallpaper* magazine, and took a moment to pause at their full page ad. My eye traveled from the overall (stunning) space, to the beautiful signature piece featured. It wasn't long before a visit to their website was in order to discover the entire line. Enjoy...

With the appreciation of glass and the understanding of quality and living, Glas has created such an incredible array of glass-based pieces to work into both living and work spaces. I would personally love to have that glass-encased, cozy white chair, simple striped coffee table, orange console table, and intricate glass mirror... I could see a plush velvet cushion tucked into that white chair, a glistening chandelier above that console and that mirror... oh that mirror, for any space...

But really, I would love to know what you think of these pieces—do share! + on a side note, I am pleased to be a guest on Luster, sharing about one of my dream destinations: Ireland; where I would like to visit, what I would pack and love to see. And with that, I wish you a wonderful weekend!

  1. Wow, this is stunning. The white sofa is beautiful, I so long to have a white sofa...and I don't care if it's not practical.. ;) The setting for these photos is equally gorgeous.

    I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

  2. Wow! I just love this juxtaposition of new with the old. Beautiful pieces and beautiful building.

    Have a good weekend, Sarah!

  3. Dearest Sarah,

    The white sofa and the two settees are my favorites. They do blend in best with their surroundings.
    As for Ireland... Well, we've done seminars in that country all over the place. So we got to travel the entire Ireland, however not as a tourist! We also went to the International Mushroom Science Congress in 1991 where my husband Pieter gave a paper. We had a welcome reception at the State Apartments of Dublin Castle with Irish dancers. So many medieval castles to enjoy, like the castle hotel; Marlfield House in Gorey, Co Wexford where we dined... Hope you get to go to this lovely country!!!

    Have a great weekend and lots of love,

  8. Oh my. I have a weakness for transparent art (and I have a large collection of plexiglas rings). This juxtaposition of majestic traditional architecture and modern geometric see-through design is fantastic. Thanks for sharing - stunning photographs!

  9. ok, I know I'm supposed to be looking at all the fabulous Italian furniture but I can't get past the interior architecture in these amazingly gorgeous...

  10. For just one day I would love to be in the minds of the people who create such magnificence...the first photo with those windows, that floor, and that settee. Absolutely stunning...

  11. Can you imagine walking into that hall ...Craziness!


    I always have fun with your family :)
    Also, the olive tree sounds so fascinating and magical :D

  12. what a wonderful collection you've stumbled upon. i love the colorful pieces, especially the chairs. they definitely look all the more amazing incorporating the old world charm.

  13. This is amazing! I love the colors and this building is beautiful.

  14. gorgeous.. the pops of color are great, but i have to agree, that mirror is divine!

    thanks so much for your sweet comments! hope you're having a great weekend.


  15. Wow what spellbinding images...each and every one. Just to have a small focus on color makes them so intriguing. The space is quite specatcular so to not have anything overdone and focus on the beautiful architecture and small pops of design was so clever! So happy to have found your lovely blog! Please stop by me too....I have a 3 month old blog about the building of our home and my love for decor/design.

  16. Spectacular post, those windows in the first picture are absolutely fabulous.
    Thanks for sharing.

  17. Love this way to mix and match italian traditional design with new elements..great finding..And everything is so bright!

  18. I love the contrast between old and new! It gives a space so much character! That mirror is fabulous! I WANT!

  19. You know what your posts do to me? Well, I will tell you ... 99% of them make me want to totally pare down all my belongings and just stop being un petite pack rat - because so many of your posts are open, white, bright, breathing spaces ... and that, that is just not my current, real life situation.

  20. the contrast is amazing, but so beautiful, the white sofa is very pretty, classic sophistication.
    Lots of love Sarah, sorry I have been MIA, hope to be able to comment more often this week :) xo

  21. Sarah this is gorgeous. The juxtaposition of the colorful chairs next to the stair railing is amazing. I immediately noticed that looking through the chair only further highlighted the details on the railing. And the last desk...divine.

  22. I want to LIVE here - where was it shot?

  23. Amazing pictures. The bones of these rooms are beyond fantastic and I love the tension created when contrasted with the clean modern lines.

    Happy Monday to you.
