Diaphanous Dressing

Feel like a Greek goddess in this sheer lace cover up from Karen Roth. Let your inner light
shine though as the sun’s rays diffuse in and out of the gossamer lace, showing off a lux one-piece swimsuit, or even a sweet lingerie set. Either way, this flowing dress represents translucence
at its best.

Lucid Lighting

The Caboche suspension lamp from Foscarini diffuses soft light through a blown-glass orb. The lamp has an unmistakable effect, in which every crystalline sphere recreates the image of the light source inside it and of its surroundings. Much more than a chandelier, this suspended fixture brings subtle clarity to every room in the house.

Clear Condiments

Fill these cutie glass hedgehogs with sea salt and cracked pepper and set them on the dining room table for a sure-fire conversation piece, or stick them in a kitchen nook for a tiny infusion of foodie glass art. Let their hot dog cousin guzzle a bottle of extra virgin olive oil; the glass dachshunds each siphon out oil and balsamic in perfect harmony.

See-through Specs

Define your style with über-trendy clear sunglasses from Ahlem—the Barbès in Fantom pair elevates your style no matter what sartorial choices you choose that day. Perch the bold specs on top of your head while shopping around Main Street, shade your eyes from the sun as you lounge by the pool in St. Tropez or hang them from your collar as you brunch al fresco with friends.

Sitting Pretty

A daring experiment using the latest injection molding technology, the Philippe Starck-designed Uncle Jim chairs from Kartell takes transparent furniture to the next level. Despite its size, this armchair is molded from just a single sheet of transparent polycarbonate taking the form of a durable, comfortable and modern-shaped design. The loveseat/sofa bounds past the limits of the traditional ghost chairs, with an innovative design that works both in the house and on the deck.
