Wine Glasses Gone Wild

Posted by

Casa Di Francesca Murano WineglassesWhile I was flipping through this month's crop of magazines, I discovered a gem of a company I'd never heard of before: Casa di Francesca. I checked out their new website and fell in love with their charming Murano glass wineglasses (above).

Here's the story behind the company: Katie Borghese and her husband, Prince Scipione Borghese, first discovered museum-worthy antique glass pieces in a little workshop in Murano. The couple has since faithfully reproduced some of the finest Murano glass pieces, ranging from bowls to vases to glassware.

The colors in the wine glasses are so vibrant, but the minimalist design keeps them from being too out-there. And with every purchase, a part of the proceeds go to St. Jude's.

Stunning glassware that helps a good cause? Who could say no.
