Georges Briard

Bit of a Georges Briard obsession at the moment. Jascha Brojdo, his real name, designed housewares, notably glassware in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Because it was mass produced finding it isn't difficult, pieces come up all the time on ebay, or at local flea markets often for only a few dollars. I love this mid-century glass dish

Who could resist the gold pattern - so retro.

Then there's the ceramic kitchenware, which I think I like even more

Georges Briard Seashell Cheese Plate and Knife. Seashells, appropriate for The Cool House, no? Good thing as they are both mine courtesy of ebay.

Art Glass

I'd never heard of New York based architectural glass designer Gariella Huseman until the Vintage and Modern email dropped into my inbox. That's unsurprising as her work is to the trade only, but she produces laminated glass coffee tables and mirrors that are as much works of art as functional pieces. Funky, modern square coffee table with multicolored swirls, $1800 via Vintage and Modern.
