Beautiful Water/ Wine Glasses

Anyone who watches The Barefoot Contessa has to admire Ina's beautiful glassware. I love how simple and elegant it is. It looks great with a casual or formal setting. Her pattern is called Amite by Cristallerie La Rochere. You can find sites that allow you to order the pattern, but it is a little pricey. I just found a great alternative the other day from Crate and Barrel. I think the pattern is similar, but has a modern twist that would work well in my home. The price is great too, at only 11.95 per glass. I already have wine glasses, but have been looking for something nicer to serve water in when people come over.

  1. The "French Countryside" pattern by Mikasa is also very similar! Beautiful!


  3. Oh yes! Very similar! Thanks for the links! I need to get on some water glasses pronto!
