The New York Times has proclaimed it: Colored glass is in. From Murano, used in everything from paperweights to Valmont perfume, to Tiffany lamps, we say color in home goods never went out of fashion. But its back in a big way in stemware and it needn’t cost a fortune. This season, we’re displaying our pink Champagne flutes, purchased a few years ago at Crate & Barrel. And our kitchen table is never without our red wine goblets from Williams-Sonoma, which we pair with Port Meirion Botanic Garden glasses and vintage West Virginia glassware, festooned with roses, depending on the season.
But we’re also reveling in an antique pink floral vase, along with dark-red cordial glasses and tiny bowls, that we picked up recently at The Rummage Room in Old Greenwich. (It’s run by the Women’s Fellowship of the First Congregational Church of Greenwich.)
Looking for something sturdy for the outdoor season? Wegmans in Harrison has shatterproof pastel-colored wine glasses as well as goblets ribboned with blue and green that pair with its blue and green outdoor dinnerware.
Color us delighted.
