We believe home design should be stylish and distinctive. A well-stocked collection of unique drinking glasses and quality barware are crucial elements that help elevate your entertaining and everyday decor. Our well-designed and thoughtfully curated drinkware collection at Lulu and Georgia offers the perfect touch to refine your dining experience and add a signature style to your kitchen and dining room.
Sharing meals and drinks is one of the most fundamental ways we spend time together in our homes. Elevating these moments with individual style notes is so much more than picking out a statement-making dining table or tailored sideboard. From the everyday glass drinkware we stack in our cabinets to a bold set of cocktail glasses, drinkware is an essential part of making your home a stylish, cheerful space to relax and enjoy. It also offers the opportunity to exercise your taste, embrace trends, and mix and match some daring pieces into your decor.
Not sure what drinkware to choose for your home? Don't worry; we have you covered. Check out some helpful tips below.
Whether gathering friends for a dinner party or cocktails or grabbing a morning cup of tea, our daily rituals are marked by the drinks we reach for. Having just the right glass for the occasion is an excellent way to transform every part of your day with design choices you love. It is worth looking at some of every kitchen's essential elements as you build or update your dish collection.
Tumblers are a staple in any glassware collection. They are a medium to large cup and go-to option for anything from a glass of water to a smoothie. Tumblers are typically glass drinkware, sometimes with ridges or texture to make the glass easier to hold and give their profile a distinctive design element. Our Bran Tumbler is a quintessential glass tumbler. Note how the diamond-patterned side offers a textural appeal that makes this cup a sparkling addition to a formal table or everyday water glass.
Stoneware, ceramic, or bamboo tumblers are other common choices for an eye-catching drinking glass. Many dinnerware collections offer a tumbler in the same style, so you can achieve a tailored look with a cup that complements your bowls and plates. For variety and convenience, you may want another set of smaller drinking glasses for juice, quick drinks, or even to use as cocktail glasses. Larger tumblers, on the other hand, can double as bar glasses. Mix and match styles so you can use this functional accent to dress your table up or down, depending on the occasion.
A chic, well-chosen set of wine glasses is another glass ware mainstay in a complete drinkware collection, especially if you entertain. You can get away with one versatile set of stemmed or stemless wine glasses, but you and your guests will benefit from the proper glass for the wine. Red wines need to be aerated more and benefit from a wider-bowled glass with a large mouth. White wines are best suited to the familiar wine glass profile that tapers off at the top. Most importantly, pick wine glasses that complement your drinking glasses and dish collection so that they do not look out of place at a fully set table.
Mugs are another element that helps ground your dishware collection with functional elegance. Like tumblers, mugs are often included as a piece of a more extensive dinnerware set, and this is ideal for setting the table with a sense of unity if you are hosting a brunch or laying out a coffee bar. Alternatively, mugs can be a great way to step out stylistically and bring some textural contrast into your collection with a piece steeped in earthy appeal and artisanal charm like this Farmhouse Pottery Silo Mug.
Pitchers are often similarly overlooked in a drinkware collection, but they offer a refining touch with practical appeal. Consider choosing a pitcher that matches your cocktail glasses for a tailored cocktail glassware set when sharing drinks with two or more. Pitchers also provide an elevating addition to the table—for everything from offering fresh juice at breakfast to ensuring a ready water supply for guests at dinner. Plus, they keep the tablescape looking balanced and intentionally styled.
Trends We Love
Rotating drinkware is a brilliant way to keep your kitchen aesthetic feeling fresh. Plus, it allows you to indulge in the latest trends. If you are looking for something to transform your dish collection, consider colored glass. In pink, brown, or green, colored glass can strike a vintage-inspired timeless note. Set off your bar glasses with colored cocktail glassware—a colored cocktail glass is an irresistible ingredient in fresh and classic craft cocktails all year round.
For a more subtle note, consider blue glass as a tranquil accent to a modern dish set. Blue glass with subtle bubbling can offer a refreshing bit of visual texture to your table while maintaining an understated poise. For another modern look full of textural contrast, see how the smoky tint augments the ridged grooves on the Rian Ripple Glass. That is an ideal addition to a refined space for a unique drinking glass that folds into a carefully curated aesthetic.
We also love bamboo as an unlikely but absolutely perfect and highly renewable material for durable, reusable, and dishwasher-safe dishes. Drinking glasses made from bamboo fibers can ground your collection with an eco-friendly and practical choice that comes in a sleek, lightweight design.
