We spend a lot of time around these parts talking about the benefits of buying vintage, but every once in a while you come across a product that can't be passed up just because it wasn't around in 1965. Today's find is the Midas Collection from Swedish design collective Front. Simple, sophisticated, modern - we can't say enough about these golden gods. Get your holiday table spreads ready, 'cause here comes Midas.
Cultivating a gold or brassy look for the holidays? Well here's the set for you. We wish we were being paid by Design Within Reach to say that - they're the exclusive retailer of the Midas Collection in the US - but no, we're just smitten with these and think you should be too. Front Design is composed of Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren. When they're not busy creating innovative housewares, they apparently stand around alleyways looking insufferably stylish:
Don't mess with us. We're Swedish and we create sick home furnishings.

As long as they keep putting out great product like this, you can rest assured there will always be a portion of my income that gets reserved for non-vintage. Still, I see these Midas glasses being passed down from generation to generation and one day ending up on someone else's "vintage find" list in, who knows, 2050? Let's hope we're all still sipping liquid out of vessels in forty years.

Midas Champagne Glass - $30
Or maybe we'll all be robots by then. Either way, we'll you've still got time to pick up a glass or two from DWR for the holiday season.
