Most glassware cabinets are filled with more of the same: standard clear vases tucked away for the odd flower delivery, plastic pitchers that have housed a few too many liters of homemade lemonade, and default glasses that could hold anything from water to wine to digestifs. It’s practical, sure, but why waste the cabinet space when these functional items could double as pieces of art? 

These days, designers are making glassware that looks more like sculpture, unique pieces meant to be used but also admired. Wouldn’t your sangria be better served in a pink pitcher with a wavy orange handle? (Yes.) What if you offered an aperitif in a dainty, intricately ornate blue goblet, or spiced up your grocery store flowers in a jazzy vase with an amber neck and zigzags? Here are 10 reasons to elevate your glassware today and have something nice to look at tomorrow.

If jazz hands is your best dance move…

If your entertaining skills are blooming…

If you want to lighten up the mood…

If you’re fully committed to reusable straws…

If you grab life with both hands…

If your go-to dessert is a soft serve…

If the beehive is your retro hairdo of choice…

If you have a signature scent…

If Memphis Milano is your vibe…

If you can’t contain your excitement…
