From Salvador Dalí’s pucker-shaped sofa to Diana Von Furstenberg’s signature lip print, a luscious kisser is a sure statement maker for any space. Use as a paperweight or bookend, though we like it as a striking design accent that stands on its own. Available in racy scarlet, this is one voluptuous glass tchotchke.
Founded in 1742 by Generals Koskull (Ko) and Staël von Holstein (Sta), Kosta was created so utility glass items such as window panes, drinkware and chandeliers could be provided to Stockholm and Kariskona. Customers included royalty, nobility and wealthy merchants who were able to purchase these costly glass goods. While the glass was from Sweden, Kosta was criticized for using glassblowers from Bohemia and not their country’s own designers, prompting them to hire native designers in the late 1800s.
