You can learn a lot about interior decor by reading different articles on the internet, books or magazines. No matter the style of design or decor, everyone will agree that one thing that’s central in every house is the table. Whether you have guests for dinner or not, it is important to decorate your table with a centerpiece.
A centerpiece is a decoration piece to put at the middle of the table to make it more beautiful and welcoming and to fll place. Centerpieces are used also in weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, parties, and even commercial events.
They are always elegant and help to set the style of the house or the event. Centerpieces are commonly plates, bowls and even eggs.
A nice art glass centerpiece will make the table more attractive and warmer to the guests. A table could be looking bare without anything on it, but even just a simple centerpiece with some flowers would completely change the situation, bringing refinement and elegance to the table.
Moreover, these pieces are not just for the aesthetic, they are functional! You can put flowers in them but also candy, fruit, candles or any type of arrangement you like. Besides the style, shape and color, centerpieces can be of many different materials such as ceramic, metal or glass. One material that never fails to be luxurious and can fit into any decor style is the Murano glass.
Murano glass bowls are some of the best things you can have on your table, and today’s luxury decorators agree. But what is this Murano glass? It is made exclusively on the little island of Murano, which is part of a network of tiny islands in the Venice lagoon. Murano blown glass is handmade and its process has barely changed from the 13th century when it was born. The glass masters still make by hand the pieces using the same techniques their ancestors used, passed from generation to generation. With each blown glass centerpiece comes a piece of this eight hundred years old tradition and the techniques the masters have learned and taught for all this time. To protect its authenticity, every piece of Murano artwork has a trademark that certifies that it was made at a furnace that follows the traditional glass blowing process.
Murano glass is famous for its beautiful colors. Masters achieve these interesting tones by adding different minerals into the glass mix. Usually, also gold and silver specks are added into the glass, making the piece glow when exposed to the light. Different types of lights can also alter the color, so you can see a different hue if you move the centerpiece to another place of the room or if you change your lights. Because every piece is hand-made by the glass masters, you’ll have a unique piece of art that only you own.
Let’s focus on the types of centerpieces, that are plates, bowls and eggs. Firstly, a Murano glass plate would be a versatile choice. Always unquestionably elegant, it can also be really simple or very playful. Plates look good everywhere and are not necessarily big so you can also have them in the hall or in the kitchen. If you want to free the table for a special dinner, you can simply move the plate on a stand and it wouldn’t look out of place. Murano places come in various styles, but the colorful Murrine ones are very popular.
Next, you can never do wrong with a beautiful Murano glass bowl at the center of your table. The bowl is a classic that can never go out of style. Besides being gorgeous, it is a great functional piece. You can fill it with fruit, candy, or flowers for an elegant event, anything that you like. You can also leave it empty to appreciate it as a work of art. In this case, the bowls with specks of gold would be fitting, as they would reflect the light and brighten up the space.
Lastly, we have the Murano glass decorative egg. This type of centerpiece is for the ones with an eclectic and luxurious taste. Some of these eggs are even functional as storage for jewelry. They will stand out in all their luminous beauty from every corner of the room and will add a unique touch of elegance and refinement to your home.
