Estelle Colored Glass
"My hands down favorite place to buy glassware is from Estelle Colored Glass because they have a color for every mood. You can easily set the tone for your next ladies brunch, holiday party, or happy hour with Estelle's amazing collection of colored glassware. I specifically love their pack of mixed colors because it’s fun and can pull in so many different colors on the table setting like floral arrangements, napkins, plates etc. My personal favorites are either the lavender or the fuchsia. Go bold or go home!" - Tara Miller, owner and lead designer at The Heartland Interior Design
The Little Market
"Personally, I own The Little Market's recycled Mexican glassware set. It's feminine, dreamy and most importantly, supports Mexican artisans." - Molly Torres, founder of DATE Interiors
"I love getting glassware from The Avenue, a great boutique based out of Houston founded by Lyndsey Zorich. They add a touch of glamour to any space." - Mary Patton Design
"If we want to buy a whole set of glassware, big box retailers like CB2 have great options!" - Julia Miller, founder of Yond Interiors
"For both myself and my clients, I love shopping for unique and high-quality glassware on The Nopo, a curated online platform offering fair trade home decor by talented artisans." - Karen Wolf, creative principal at Karen B. Wolf Interiors
"One of my favorite places to get glassware is La Soufflerie, based in Paris. They make my favorite everyday drinking glass, but their collection has so much range with everything from colored glass to stunning wine glasses. They are all handmade and handblown so each one feels special and no two are exactly alike." - Chrissy Hunter, founder of Harlowe James
HomeSense or HomeGoods
"I love HomeSense (similar to HomeGoods) for all my glassware needs. They always seem to have just what I’m looking for at a very reasonable price point. I love items that look vintage but aren’t and once scored these pretty gold rimmed pink flutes. I not only use them for entertaining at home but have used them in a few photo shoots as well." - Vanessa Francis, founder of Vanessa Francis Interior Design
"I love glassware, it's really the jewelry to any table setting, sideboard, or bar cart! For vintage glassware I typically defer to Etsy, they have the most unique finds that you can often find in sets which can be rare!" - Nicole Arruda, principal designer and founder of Nicole Alexandra Design Studio
"I'm a sucker for glassware, especially when it comes to vintage. A day at the local thrift store inspires me. I find luxe pieces that are unique because they are not mass produced, but also sustainable. Best of all, they highlight my clients' personal style!" - Beth Stein, founder of Beth Stein Interiors
