When I designed our dining room built-in, I wanted to make sure I'd have a spot to store all of my extra glassware.
I love how something so simple can add such sparkle to a room.
My favorite source for glassware is estate sales. It seems that most people just pass them by. Most of the sets I find are quite large, which is a must for me. I usually won't buy any sets with less than 12 glasses. Although I couldn't pass up this set of 8 tiny juice glasses (shown at left) recently.
The set was mine for $1. And I do really like how old-fashioned juice glasses are tiny. I think juice is more special sipped, not guzzled.
I still have several shelves to fill and can't wait to see what I'll find next.
P.S. Have you ever seen Matthew Mead's Entertaining Simple book? I love his use of glassware throughout.
Post Edit: I ordered our table from Antico. It works really well for our big family because it seats 12. I love that their furniture is made from reclaimed and sustainably harvested wood. The chairs are from Cost Plus World Market.
