Set of 3 laylights in the master bedroom illuminated by dimmable florescent lights.
The colors of the details in this set of three laylight windows harmonize with rusts, blues and greens of the persian rug below.

The glass for these cabinetry panels comes from manufacturers in Oregon, Pennsylvania, Indiana and California.
Part Japanese woodblock print, part Glasgow stylized floral design.
This Dogwood laylight was made from a sky blue / amber glass that we commisioned specifically for our laylights.
Careful attention is paid to the shading of the glass and the decorative metal work that depicts the notch at the apex of the dogwood floral bract.
