A little bit about Murano glass

In an attempt to recreate the lost glassmaking techniques of the ancient Romans, sixteenth century Murano glassmakers created the ‘millefiori’ or ‘Murrine’ style. ‘Millefiori’ directly translates as ‘a thousand flowers’ which is exactly how these pieces look - vibrant and intricately decorated with tiny, spiralling flowers, the glass is sliced like a stick of rock to reveal extraordinary patterns that entice the eye.

Millefiori glass is used in everything from lighting to jewellery and makes a beautiful, thoughtful gift for people who like to decorate with every colour of the rainbow. Though the Millefiori style is the region’s most instantly recognisable, the history and culture of Murano glassmaking encompasses far more. In fact, there’s a Murano object to appeal to everyone.

Vintage Murano glass chandelier

Do you want an iconic light fixture that delivers a ‘wow’ factor wherever you install it? If so, a Murano glass chandelier is an instantly recognisable investment piece that elegantly completes any room. In the daytime, Murano chandeliers, such as the structurally floral ‘Tronchi’ add a stunning touch of subtle colour, whilst in the evening, they come alive, casting out awe inspiring, tinted light. Available in a plethora of different shades and combinations, a Murano glass chandelier is a stunning addition to the home and a definitive piece of Italy’s glassmaking history.

Murano glass pendant lights

If you are looking for something that remains a design classic but is more understated than the opulent extravagance of the Murano chandelier, perhaps a Murano glass pendant is the right lighting choice for you. Available in all manner of shapes and sizes, these lampshades, crafted from coloured glass, hang from the ceiling in elegant, eye-catching tones, creating a chic focal point.

Choose an orb shape in bright, breezy tangerine for a mouthwatering pop of colour in the kitchen, or a delicate, handkerchief inspired shade in pale blue and white for a softer look, perfect for the bedroom. Murano pendants are a perfect choice if you’re trying to incorporate more interesting design into your decor and in our wide selection of carefully sourced Murano, there are even side lamps and sconces to match!
