Tuesday's Trends: Smoked Glass
Hello Fabulistas! There's something undeniably masculine and mid-century about smoke glass. The look gives just about anything a bit of edge, which helps balance out the metallics I love to use in designs. Here are a few of my favorite incarnations of this style.
Smoked cocktail glasses
I adore a good hunt for vintage and antique pieces. I don't always have time to dedicate to perusing shops, though. So sometimes I take my hunt to Etsy, where I've found some surprising treasures! These mid-century cocktail glasses would be a great way to show your love for the smoked glass trend. They'd be fab for holiday entertaining!
Smoked glass table
This table would look so chic in a minimalist setting. Plus, the smoked glass surface might allow for a little more dirt and debris than its clear counterparts. You have to love a chic and convenient piece of furniture!

Geometric smoked glass pendant
Remember my saying on lighting all four corners of your room for a happier space? Well, you might as well find chic lighting fixtures that will please your eye, too! I could stare up at this geometric mid-century pendant for hours. The angles and smoked glass play up the light so well.
Smoked glass bar cart
Finding a vintage smoked glass bar cart can be quite the challenge. It's one of those items you have to know you want and look for relentlessly! I see them pop up and snatched up immediately on places like Etsy and One Kings Lane all the time. I adore the copper bamboo frame on this one, but chrome also makes for a chic pairing.
