The above Milk Glass has a gorgeous colourful design by Sieger Design. The limited edition glass uses the high impact of a colourful star shape to beautifully contrast against the unfilled glass, or the white of milk in a filled glass.

The designers Neri and Hu have imbued their Champus Champagne Glass with a distinctive touch of elegance and beauty. The subtly etched ink-like pattern on the glass inspires dreams of smoke clouds and provides a mysterious eloquence ideal for evening celebrations. Ideal as a gift, or for simply always being on hand for special occasions.
The stylish Gin Tonic Glass from D.C. Holmes and Ritzenhoff displays an artistic touch and contemporary finish perfect for enjoying a drink with friends. The glowing sun design on the glass calls to mind relaxed summer evenings, and chilling out with a cool and refreshing beverage.
Another Beer Glass and another high-impact and unique design.
