FrontRunners: Rose-Colored Glasses

<< Back to Robb Report, November 2012

    Conceived by Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola, Baccarat Variations (www.baccarat.com) brings a colorful, neo-pop look to the fine creations of the 248-year-old crystal house. The new stemware-and-vase collection features crystal designs with clear or colored-enamel bases. The colored stemware, priced at $175 per piece, includes blue water goblets, orange glasses for white wine, pink glasses for red wine, and yellow Champagne flutes. Baccarat used an innovative glass-cutting technique to produce the line’s pleated-, smooth-, and cut-crystal vases, which are available in a variety of diameters, heights, and colors.
