Best Bet: Midas Gold-Dipped Glassware


The Midas glassware collection is made of thin, feather-light glass dipped in a bath of gold by the Swedish design collective Front. Drinking out of these is probably the closest you'll ever come to turning wine into gold, but the way the precious metal appears to be swirling around in the cups and carafes makes it easy to pretend. The collection includes five different items, including three different-sized glasses and two carafes, all sold separately.

Midas collection, $25-$70, at Design Within Reach or online.
