For the past 40 years, LSA International has explored the limits of handmade glass, creating colorful contemporary barware, tableware, and interior goods that are a joy to use and a wonder to behold. Simple, elegant shapes in stunning hues are the British company’s strength, with most items designed by the prolific Monika Lubkowska-Jonas. LSA has recently added porcelain objects to its repertoire, and several of its pieces are displayed in the permanent collection of London’s Geffrye Museum and featured in New York’s MoMA design shop.
For that person in your life that just seems to have it all, we've curated some our favorite gift ideas that are still sure to surprise and delight.
Add a kick to cocktail hour with these contemporary tumblers, champagne flutes, goblets and carafes designed by British artist Monika Lubkowska-Jonas. Each is handmade, with the hues painted on the glasses’ surface then fired in an oven to seal them in. Equally stunning are LSA’s vases, including Miro — a glowing matte orb composed of three layers of glass — and Maiko, which sports a handcrafted granite effect overlaid with black.
Trust us: You’ll want to toast this collection of stemware, tableware and bar essentials. Take your pick of tumblers from Eva Solo and martini glasses from Kim Seybert. Or perhaps a graceful, practical decanter is more your style. We have them aplenty, from Riedel’s gravity-defying Tyrol to Vellum’s pewter-and-crystal options. Also on offer are corkscrews and wine fridges, as well as ice buckets and mini keg beer dispensers.
You are passionate about your beverages, so why not have the same gusto for the goblets you drink them from? Keep your whites cool and preserve your unfinished bottles in the Vinovault Professional wine fridge. Decant that ’89 Bordeaux or young, tight California Cab in the Vinum Extreme. Pop a cork with our corkscrew collection, and toast to the arrival of summer (finally!) with our elegantly playful Bubble flutes.
