An empty shell of a space can be daunting – or very exciting with the right partners by your side. As we near the completion of the House of Taste at our new Aquidneck Avenue location, we are excited to include a custom chandelier designed by Tracy Glover Studio which will be our own “North Star” in our Client Salon. Our clients will review samples and design plans with team members under the constellation-inspired chandelier. What better way to light the path to a new home interior than with a customized and handcrafted installation.
And who better to design this chandelier than Tracy Glover, an avid oarsman, who rows each day at dawn. The prismatic meeting of sunlight and tides is invariably echoed in her translucent, faceted glass designs. Tracy honed her craft in a 13th century Belgian convent’s crystal factory and Dale Chihuly’s Pilchuck School, where she was mentored by Venetian maestri-in-residence. She uses traditional Italian techniques to craft her exuberant glassworks in her Pawtucket, Rhode Island studio.
Tracy has cleverly designed her collection of table and floor lamps, wall sconces and ceiling pendants as a system of interchangeable parts offering a multiplicity of choices for the proportion and shape of base components, glass color, lampshade fabric, metal finishes and lamping. Likewise, her accessories – decorative hardware, and vases – are available in an endless array of color combinations and patterns. This allows optimal room for our clients’ input: each piece can be site-specific, and, depending on the elements selected, quietly tasteful, dramatic, stately, or whimsical. Each creation by Tracy Glover is uniquely handblown to order.
House of Taste is excited to play host to Tracy Glover’s work of art, the Constellation Chandelier, and be able to share it with future clients and guests in our showroom.
Only the best,
