If you love to entertain, then you can appreciate how a set of FX Nachtmann crystal champagne flutes, crystal bowls, colored wine glasses and other glassware can magically pull an evening together. F.X. Nachtmann's tabletop offerings include all of this and more, including stylish tumblers (should the party continue after-hours) -- the German brand, a division of Riedel, might have been founded in 1834, but it keeps the party going like tomorrow will never come.
Because of its chemical composition, lead crystal shines brighter, refracts more light and appears more perfect than mere glass. Nachtmann’s prismatic barware and bowls exemplify the difference. Made by artisans in Bavaria, the Aspen whisky tumblers are functional pieces of art, while the Dancing Stars Bossa Nova martini glasses will leave you shaken <i>and</i> stirred.
These lead-crystal decanters, barware, and <i>objets</i> are sparkling examples of form and function. Available in your choice of pink, red, or clear, the 5-arm Ravello candlestick holder makes a dramatic centerpiece, while the festive miniature Christmas trees add a little noel to any room. Sip in style with the etched Delight Toasting champagne flute, or enjoy your Merlot in a stemless tasting glass. Whatever you choose, it’ll be a happy holiday indeed.
Because of its chemical composition, lead crystal shines brighter, refracts more light and appears more perfect than mere glass. (You could deem it the Angelina Jolie of artisanal materials.) Nachtmann’s barware, bowls and candleholders exemplify the difference. The Cubist Ice vase is nothing short of prismatic, and lovers of Murano should check out the richly colored candleholders that give Italian wares a run for their money.
One look at these super-smart gadgets and goods and you’ll see the future is now. Choose from items like the honeycomb-shaped Anemone multi-surface light (it’s made of Tyvek, that durable, waxy paper used for FedEx envelopes) and the rubber-encased Dune FM radio, which features astonishingly great sound for such a small package. Want more? There are also digital photo frames, hot-pink clocks, and robotic floor-cleaning machines on offer.
