The Shingle home style is distinctly American and traces its beginnings to the late 19th century. It's a reflection of the desire to move away from the more ornate Victorian style that had previously become widespread. Exteriors were characterized by a more natural, casual style that steered away from classical details. Interiors were influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement.

Andersen® Art Glass
Art glass designs for Shingle style homes typically use small pieces of glass with very little or no color. While art glass is appropriate in almost any location within the home, it’s most commonly found in feature windows, in stair landing windows and in doors.
Each design is available in a wide range of sizes and shapes, and in a combination of clear and colored glass or clear glass only. See more art glass options.
