Sip Pretty: 9 of the best coloured tumblers

Sip pretty with these tabletop treats in the sweetest of shades...

Colourful glassware is one of the simplest ways to dress a table, whether morning, noon or night. So it’s pleasing to see so many pretty coloured tumblers to choose from.

Our edit spans those from the High Street – hello yellow stripe tumblers from Zara, great for a family breakfast (and now in the sale) – to those you might only want to use with your most well-behaved friends, yes we’re talking ’bout you, beautiful Rosanna Murano tumblers.

There are the Incalmo glasses by Jochen Holz, free-blown using the unusual and highly skilled lamp working technique; a process which along with the flowing forms of hot glass, allows the artist an improvisational element to the work, which results in these unique pieces.

Also handcrafted are the fabulous and fun Party tumblers, designed by Federico de Majo for Zafferano at Heal’s.

For stylish crowd-pleasers, see the spiked blue glass tumblers from Polkra or the Raami tumblers by Jasper Morrison for Iittala – both beautifully elegant in their design yet stand-out enough to add character to your table (and without a price tag that could induce feint panic whenever a guest gesticulates).

Tom Dixon’s dual coloured, double walled Bump glasses are a play in transparency and translucence, while Oka’s set of four Arlecchino tumblers would bring a relaxed vibe to mealtimes with their variety of colours.

For the eco-conscious, Nkuku’s Ozari tumblers are hand made with recycled glass and finished with a hammered technique, giving them a pretty shimmer that works as well at a sunny summer lunch as a late candle-lit dinner.

Don’t forget, tumblers are not just for drinking from either. Most of these pretty glasses would make a beautiful vessel for tea lights dotted along a table too.
