Drinking Glasses in Solid ShadesWe begin with solid-hued glassware sans pattern, starting with a classic find for those who want a clean-lined look.

For those who already have the basics in their collections, it’s time to branch out with some interesting shapes. This 5-Piece Archival Glass Set from Crate & Barrel is brilliantly based on five Mid-Century modern designs.
Etsy is a great source for unique glassware finds. From vintage pieces to handmade selections, you’ll discover amazing pieces from the past, as well as new items that showcase true craftsmanship.

Sold in a set of four, these glasses have the light green tint and bumpy texture of original sparkling juice bottles. Perfect for sipping juice or white wine!

While the flock seems to have left stores for the time being, we couldn’t help but reminisce about the best of summer decorby showcasing these pink flamingo glasses from IKEA:
