Long Live the Duralex Picardie Tumbler


Even if you've never owned a Duralex Picardie Tumbler, I'd be willing to bet you've sipped from one. Created in 1927 and long ubiquitous French bistros, the Picardie is easily one of the most popular tumbler designs of all time. The fluted sides fit snugly into hands of all sizes, and the incredibly durable glasses really do tumble, rather than break, when dropped.

The glasses are becoming tougher to find, but you can still buy them online, and they're still a total steal. A set of four 8.5-ounce glasses costs about $12.

All of which brings me to my latest discovery: the Cucina Dolce Votive Candle Holder ($3). Using the Picardie as inspiration, the high-end kitchen brand has created a very cute votive container for anyone nostalgic for the design. You can also get it complete with a candle: I would love to light this Cucina Dolce Espresso Bean Scented Candle in Glass ($12) in my kitchen.
