Designer Andreas Licht creates stylish eyeglasses from maple, pear and walnut woods. Tones and textures vary in each pair, and the individual grain of the wood is preserved like the rings in a tree.
If you’re sad because Lost is in its final season, you can cry into your beer with these fun pint glasses from Ian Leino. Wait – did they ever explain why that bear was on the island anyway???
