Cheers to colorful glassware! Trend inspired by stained glass popular again

Colorful glassware

Colorful glass is a jewel on your table and in a cabinet display.

Colorful glass has been around for thousands of years, beginning with the ancient Egyptians, according to the Stained Glass Association of America.

Lovers of historic architecture know stained glass windows can be found in many an old religious building. Those fabulous color-block-stained church glass windows may feel a bit dated at times, but are now actually on trend.

Brightly hued drinking glasses, bottles, decanters and cake stands of today are elegant, delicate and, most importantly, fun. With colors spanning the entire rainbow and beyond, there is always a way to add a bit of whimsy to your tabletop whatever your preferred palette.

Colored glass more recently had its heyday in the '50s and '60s, when it was brought into homes in a big way. However, it is a newly returned trend for 2021.

The colors have been revamped to include softer pastel shades, beautiful jewel tones and modern shapes that are as exciting to look at as they are to use.
