My newest obsession right now is smoked glass, which luckily for me is popping up in stores more and more. What I love about smoked glass, is that it has this chic and sophisticated edge to it without hitting you over the head. It also can have a modern, vintage, or eclectic feel depending on what design concept you're already committed to.
One way you can work it into your home in an easy way, is a simple set of wine glasses. It will go with whatever color dishes you already have and you can mix it in with regular glasses for an edgy touch which is very gender neutral. When caring for objects like wine glasses because most smoked glass glasses, plates, etc. are hand wash only.
I found these amazing wine glasses above at CB2 (available for a limited time) but there are tons of other places that have been incorporating this look into their collections.
