    A New Website for Rough Old Glass

    We decided it was time for an update for 

    After exhibiting at The Surface Design Show it was the perfect opportunity to photograph our complete collection, have a redesign of our website to showcase them and show you a little bit more behind the scenes at our workshop and gilding studio.

    We hope the new features make ordering samples for your interior projects more straightforward. The website also allows you to search for finishes by colour or which finishes are suitable to be toughened for splash backs or table tops for example.

    You can magnify the sample finish images by hovering your mouse over them or click on them to view a larger picture making it easier to visualise a finish.

    Verre Eglomise doors for the Dorchester Hotel

    Our Gilding Workshop was commissioned by Decca Furniture to hand paint and gild 136 glass panels which are to be used as mini bar doors in the Dorchester Hotel Suites. Each door with it's floral and willow design was hand painted by our in house artists. Fine gold details were applied behind the translucent glass paint to highlight the petals. They were then reverse gilded in silver leaf in a haphazard fashion and distressed to create a distressed mirror finish.

    The Surface Design Show

    The Surface Design Show
    We had such a lovely response to our stand at The Surface Design Show. It was great to meet new and existing clients alike. Thanks to all who braved the tube strike to make it to see us at our first exhibition.
    Our textured antiqued mirror glass finishes were certainly proving extremely popular. We're always on the lookout for new and interesting glass textures and developing new techniques to create more than just our standard hand silvered antiqued mirror.
    We've already booked the same space for February 2015! Check out the Surface Design Show website for more information on the show. We hope to see you there.
