Since 1881, Finnish brand Iittala has been creating glassware for the home. We've rounded up 9 designs we love from the company.
origo mix bowl haberli alfredo iittala

Origo Mix Bowl

Do not adjust your magazine. The Technicolor graphics on this porcelain bowl are just a test of the Emergency Breakfast System. For Origo’s tenth anniversary Alfredo Häberli remixed the palettes of the otherwise horizontally inclined line with a slight vertical adjustment.

Lempi Glass, Matti Klenell, Iittala

Lempi Glass

A casual wine goblet, Lempi has a wide mouth that lets in major air flow. Serious oenophiles might turn up their noses at the thick tinted glass, but we’re tipping our hats to the funky, low-slung silhouette and the blue, lilac, clear, and smoky gray colors.

Sarjaton serving bowl from iittala


We love this shallow serving bowl from iittala. The Tikki pattern is simple yet intricate and right on trend for the season.

Trio Glassware Set

Handmade and free blown at Iittala's legendary Finnish glass factory, this modern three-piece serving set stacks up well against the classics.

Ultima Thule pitcher

Ultima Thule

This perfectly icy pitcher is beautiful and elegant with a bit of whimsy. It would be great on any table regardless of time of year but adds an extra frosty sparkle to a wintery tablescape.

Jalusta Cake Stand

Cakes will come and cakes will go, but when it's time for a slice (or two), we're all for putting the sweet stuff up on a pedestal. Finnish designer Harri Koskinen created this glass stand for Finnish housewares brand Iittala as part of the new Art Works collection.

Aino Aalto Clear Bowl by Aino Aalto for Iittala

Aino Aalto Clear Bowl

This classic bowl will serve you—and your friends and family—well throughout the year. Its simple shape and elegent execution is ideal for filling with your favorite side, from potatoes to stuffing, then apples and oranges the rest of the time.
