Last week I told you about my welcome embrace of the dark side
—on my walls, at least. This week, it's my table that's getting the moody makeover. That's because Riedel
(maker of the greatest wine glasses on the planet, IMHO) just launched their first collection of black stemware and, as expected, it's breathtaking. Created to mark the 40th anniversary of the company's Sommelier Series, the mouth-blown crystal line is available in three styles: clear bowls with a red stem and black base, black bowls with a red stem and black base, and all black. Given the recent tenor of my posts, I think you all know which ones will be gracing my dinner table.
