Classic Glass Products Featured on HGTV’s Curb Appeal

Date: 13 June 2009

Leaded glass windows created by Classic Glass Inc. in Alexandria, Va., were recently featured in an episode of the HGTV’s show, Curb Appeal.

I got a phone call from one of the producers of Curb Appeal asking if we would be willing to work with them on a house renovation in Silver Spring, Md.,” says Karen Elkin, co-founder of Classic Glass Inc.  “I was definitely interested but needed to hear more about what they were asking us to produce because I was told that the tradesmen/craftsmen work ‘gratis’.When I saw that what they were looking for were simple, small stained glass panels I knew that this was something we could fabricate easily-no research and development involved.”

For the project Classic Glass made Frank Lloyd Wright-style leaded glass panels using clear seedy glass with white opalescent details.

“They were designed to complement the arts-and-crafts style light fixtures that were going to be installed on either side of the front door,” says Elkins. “Our windows are installed with clips on the top halves of six double-hung windows in the front of the house.”

Overall, Elkins says that having the opportunity to be a part of Curb Appeal was a great experience.

“It was a pleasure to work with the designers and the rest of the staff at Curb Appeal, and it was really exciting and fun to have the camera crew come and film at our facility,” says Elkins. And though she says they haven’t actually gotten new work as a result of somebody seeing the episode, they have gotten lots of mileage from being able to say that they were on the show. “Most people seem very impressed,” she says.

The episode is scheduled to air again June 28 at 7 p.m. E/P
