We’re loving coloured glass at the moment, from blush candlesticks to sepia vases
24th Jan 2021
Whether you want to inject some retro 1970s glamour or just a hint of warmth, these pieces will introduce subtle colour to your space.
Coloured glassware is having a real moment, popping up again and again on our Instagram feeds and in plenty of new-season collections.
We can see why — as well as bringing a subtle touch of colour to a space, it’s also something that will look even better as spring edges closer, and the sunlight illuminates it on bright days. They’re also functional pieces, whether it’s a candleholder, jug, or vase, they serve a purpose as well as looking great.
Here are nine that we’ve got our eye on.
A vase that looks good even when it doesn’t have anything in it sounds like a pretty good deal to us, and the warm brown tones of this one along with its sculptural shape make for a gorgeous combination.
Elegant yet with a modern feel, we absolutely love the sunset tones of this undulating candlestick, guaranteed to make even a weeknight dinner feel fancy.
Made from mouth-blown glass and available in a smoky or sepia shade, these gorgeous Broste Copenhagen vases would be perfect to show off a bunch of blooms, or even just some seasonal foliage.
The perfect way to add a seventies vibe to your table, this handy jug has matching mugs it can be paired with to really lean into the look.
Made using 100 per cent recycled glass, this vase is lovely for those who prefer cooler tones, and would make a great centrepiece on a dining table.
This delicate vase sits on elegant legs, making it particularly eye-catching on a coffee table or mantlepiece. Made by Danish brand Menu, it’s available in several colours from Belfast store Maven.
These beautiful carafes and beakers are handblown at the Jerpoint workshop in Thomastown, Co Kilkenny, and will add a wonderful touch of brightness to your table.
This hand blown vase has a more Art Deco style with its gold detailing, and is currently less than half price, making it very good value.
This sweet little bowl would be handy for everything from relishes to snacks, while its retro design adds a touch of cool. There is an accompanying range of mugs and teacups, so would also work as a sugar bowl.
