Glass as a Structural Device: Foldaway Glass Room Divider

Glass as a Structural Device: Foldaway Glass Room Divider

It’s no secret that the best way to get the most from your home interior is to maximise light. By providing a stylish translucent partition that slides away when not needed, Kettle Design’s glass screens are an inspired design solution for room partitions.


In this example from a project in Formby, a durable glass screen is used to divide the kitchen from the snug when necessary. Aesthetic interest is added to the design through the use of patterned glass. Translucent swirls create a stylish effect of fluidity whilst the selective use of tiny air bubbles add texture and sparkle to the overall finish with a subtle glisten. When the client wishes to use the kitchen as one large room again the screen slides away effortlessly, creating a ‘two-rooms-in-one’ effect.

As with all bespoke Kettle Design creations, the glass screen room divider is a highly versatile design, and can be used in a multitude of different environments to achieve different design solutions.

Interesting Glass: Bespoke Marble Bowl from a Cheshire Supplier

Interesting Glass: Bespoke Marble Bowl from a Cheshire Supplier

It’s never too late to add finishing touches to a room in your home, or to add a new edge to your interior design creations with a statement accessory.

Add a playful yet elegant touch to any room with this beautiful handmade glass marble bowl, available to view and buy in our showroom in Cheshire. Evoking the contemporary and the nostalgic simultaneously, this wonderful piece is both stylish and practical. 
The bowl is made from dozens of bespoke marbles, which are carefully rolled into a mould and then fired in a kiln to melt the glass and fuse them together. The finished effect: an iridescent glass surface with an interesting texture that is a delight for the eyes and fingers alike. Hold the bowl up to the light to illuminate the crystal-clear colours of each marble’s centre. Unlike normal marbles, these purpose-designed marbles use solid coloured glass at their centres as opposed to streaks of paint.


The handmade nature of this piece also means that no two bowls could ever be exactly alike, guaranteeing a totally unique and one-of-a-kind accessory for your home.
