A new glassware collection at Monx XIII brings sleek Scandinavian style to your tabletop.
The beautifully proportioned pieces in Deborah Ehrlich’s new collection feature lead-free crystal hand-blown by Swedish artisans for sculptural perfection.
Glassware designer Deborah Ehrlich describes her collection at MONC XIII, the stylish home design boutique in Sag Harbor, as “quiet,” but we think she’s being modest. Here’s proof: Natasha Esch, the boutique’s owner, calls seeing Ehrlich’s pieces for the first time a religious experience—an unsurprising reaction given the incredibly meticulous work that goes into them. “I have one of the best mold makers in the world cutting my molds for me in Sweden,” says Ehrlich, who studied at the Danish Design School in Copenhagen. “The molds are so precise, the outside shape of each piece is always the same, but it’s up to the talent and skill of the glassblower to make the balance of the glass, and the thinness of the lip, perfect.” With its stunning Swedish crystal and simple designs, the collection is indeed perfect—especially for MONC XIII’s clientele. “Deborah’s collection can coexist with the fanciest of dinnerware and the most casual barbecues,” says Esch, “and that, I believe, is what people love in the Hamptons.” And Ehrlich agrees. “For me, the Hamptons is about entertaining and enjoying yourself with friends,” says the designer. “Personally, I drink orange juice out of the white wine glass first thing in the morning. Why wait if you’re supposed to be enjoying yourself?” Cheers to that! 40 Madison St., Sag Harbor, 808-3333
