7 Types of Retro and Nostalgic Embossed Glass

Embossed glass, also known as patterned glass, originated in Europe and became globally popular between the 1950s and 1980s. Here are seven classic designs of embossed glass that are making a comeback in the 21st century:

Rainbow Glass (長虹玻璃):

One of the most popular embossed glass designs today. It has vertical patterns that elongate the visual perception of space. Commonly used in entrances, bathroom partitions, interior doors, and kitchen cabinet doors to add luxury.

Begonia (海棠花):

One of the most classic patterns in embossed glass, detailed, and available in multiple colors. It's frequently found in 60's houses on windows and is now used in modern homes for partitions, cabinet doors, windows, and sliding doors to enhance the aesthetics of a room.

Cross (十字花):

A unique embossed glass made from a combination of cross and fog patterns. It can be cut into rectangles or squares, with the rectangular variant offering more dimension. This pattern is suitable for Japanese interior design and often used in partitions, studies, and windows.

Water Ripple (水波紋):

This pattern resembles irregular raindrops, creating an artistic, blurry texture. The intricate lines and silhouettes give a sense of ambiance to space. Due to its dense pattern, it's perfect for windows, partitions, sliding doors, and decorative accents.

Diamond (鑽石花):

Looks like countless overlapped small diamonds, creating a sparkly and luxurious look, perfect for adding a touch of elegance and romance to a home. With high privacy levels, it's great for storage cabinets, bathroom doors, and wardrobe sliding doors. It's also popular in glassware and accessories.

Square (方格花):

Comprising horizontal and vertical lines forming squares, it shares similarities with Begonia in terms of its 3D appearance. Its design simplifies objects and gives a warm and healing vibe, suitable for minimalist interior designs like Nordic or French styles.

Hammered Texture (錘目紋):

This pattern looks like numerous unique petals pressed onto the surface. Its randomness and beauty make it perfect for small decorative elements like sliding doors and cabinet doors. It's also often seen in various decorations and items, including glass cups, spoons, silverware, and brassware.
