Symmetry enjoys major hype, with its perfect balance and predictable forms. But don’t discount the allure of more avant-garde and asymmetric designs—they’re often the most memorable and magical. That’s certainly true of the Narcisse glassware collection by Baccarat. Imagined in 1971 by sculptor and furniture designer Boris Tabacoff, these off-center, fabulously faceted champagne coupes appear to mimic narcissus flowers as they lean toward the sun.

The avant-garde glassware pairs effortlessly with a crisp pour of champagne, but don’t be afraid to get creative. Spring is the perfect time to mix up your sipping routine with an effervescent cocktail.
