Wine Glasses for the Un-Plain Jane

Lani Designs hand-painted glassware is for those who prefer bold over blah. They inspire fun times with good friends, and can turn an ordinary get together or date night with a DVD into something special!

Every single glass is painted by hand, by a real person, from memory – no stencils. They’re then dried and fired in a design studio in Philly led by president and creative director Kristy Peters. Most hand-painted glasses are mass produced overseas, or have some aspect of the manufacturing done in bulk. Not Lani. When you buy wine glasses from Lani, you are getting something beautifully handmade by artists in the USA who love what they do… and it shows in the quality.

Just like every woman adds her own personality to this world, every Lani glass is given a name because it too comes with a personality. There’s the Vivian (for the lady who tends to her blue-ribbon rosebushes but can't use a computer to save her life), the Maxine (for the woman who would remember to bring the good gin to a tailgate), and the Joy (for she who schedules her weekly pedi appts a year in advance). And dozens more. In fact, the Lani site is so enjoyable to browse through because they offer categories to choose your theme: Spring Fling, Garden Party, Let’s Get Graphic, Daring Damask, Beachy Keen and Happenin’ Holidays.

Customers can choose from Balloon Red Wine Glasses, Twisted Stem Glasses, Martini Glasses, and Champagne Glasses – as well as great gift sets. Best part: Lani glassware is scratch resistant, uses non-toxic paint, fade-proof color, and is top rack dishwasher safe. They will last!
