Kartio Glassware

Glassware may not be the most exciting thing to you, but, hey, you use it every single day for your juice/water/spirits. Why not upgrade to something more visually appealing than the mix-matched set you’ve had since college? You can’t go wrong with Iittala’s Kartio Collection, as the series dates back to 1958, when Kaj Franck first created their simple, balanced design. There’s quite a few subtle colors (you’re sure to find something to suit your preferences) and they’re durable enough for everyday use.

Merican Dream Mug

How’s your Merican dream doing? It may or may not be doing great, due to the current political situation, but perhaps you could use a little reminding that certain opportunities and dreams are still possible here in the good ol’ US of A. Remembering that along with your morning cup of coffee/tea everyday might do you some good. The Merican Doormat is still available too, fyi.

Mazama Wares Glasses

These hand blown soda-lime glasses are worth a second look. Maybe it’s the jade green tint that catches our eye for its hint at the past, or maybe it’s the angled silhouette with a heavier base that suggests a comfortable hold. Maybe it’s all those subtle cues combined that say they’re special. There’s plenty of other colors as well (nightshade, smoke, clear aqua, haze, and honey) and three different sizes to suit your beverage of choice (cocktail, wine, and pint).

Ripple Glasses and Carafe

If you’re drinking your favorite cold beverage out of a chipped mug, snap up this set of Ripple Glasses pronto. Mouth blown into the mold, each glass features a lovely rippled surface. Look closer and you’ll see that each glass has a varied height to its collar; that adds interest, of course, but it also means you’ll be able to tell which glass is yours when your friends and family are around. Go ahead and get the matching carafe too- you might as well, as the whole grouping is quite affordable.

Indigo Splatter Ceramics by Chris Earl

An indigo splattered coffee cup is just what your tea or coffee would like to live in (however briefly) before you sip/gulp/slurp it down. Los Angeles-based designer Chris Earl is the man with the blue paint brush, and he splatters indigo glaze across his hand-thrown tumblers, coffee cups and bowls with equal enthusiasm.

Emma Thermal Cup

It’s getting colder, so we’re going to prefer our tea and coffee very, very hot, thank you very much. But what about our poor little hands? Well, when you use the Emma Thermal Cup its outer layer will insulate the hand from heat and keep your beverage hot. Of course, when the weather turns warm again, just think how perfect a scoop or two of ice cream would be in one of these.

Future Glass Set

The colors of the Future Glass Set remind one of the Spectra Vases, and, lo and behold, they’re from the very same glassworks Holmegaard. Peter Svarrer designed the Future Glass set in 2000, and more than a decade later they look just as lovely on the table… or in a gift box perhaps? Choose between Rose + Yellow, Blue + Green, or Lavender + Aquamarine.

Machine Collection Glassware

Do these glasses remind you a little bit of industrial light fixtures? That’s exactly what inspired them, and the result is a hefty sort of glassware with just an smidgen of decorative fluting (like a well-made suit with a pretty tie and pocket square). Choose between a large or small set of three.

Dearborn Glassware

What says ‘grown-up glassware’ more than the $70 per piece price tag of the Dearborn Glassware? Maybe the intricate, fluted Borosilicate glass, or the knowledge that each piece was expertly created by master glassblowers in the Czech Republic. Borosilicate glass, if you didn’t know, gives thermal resistance, which translates into a durability appropriate for daily use- it’s safe to use in ovens, microwaves, and dishwashers- and that gives us all a little more understanding to the collection’s value (and, ultimately, the aforementioned price tag).
