the midas touch

The hottest four letter word in the design world these days is GOLD. This regal metallic has been popping up everywhere, from textiles to lighting and it's easy to see why. A little bit goes a long way and it's an instant way to bring a touch of glamour into any space.

Design Within Reach is now offering the Midas Collection, four barware pieces that are each dipped in a bath of gold to create an irregular effect. DWR states:

The way that the gold appears to be swishing around in the glass, as if someone is about to drink it, could be an ironic statement about luxury, or perhaps it simply speaks to the joy of sipping a glass of water or a favorite wine. How the story evolves is up to you.
