We've noticed that recycled glassware is becoming increasingly refined looking. The TranSglass line, designed by Tord Boontje and Emma Woffenden, is especially appealing. Made from discarded wine and beer bottles, all the pieces are available in either a satin or polished finish and in shades of green, clear, and brown; see the range at Greenhouse Eco-Friendly Living in Brooklyn.
