Tabletop

Pinch Spice Containers

These small wood vessels are intended for tabletop use, as their lids are carved to allow for a small sampling of spices. Their sides are also cut at an angle so that you may place them either at a vertical or horizontal position. Considering their size and placement option, I bet you could also find a use for them in the office or bathroom, for paperclips or bath salts perhaps?

Sempli’s Incanter

Summer is right around the corner, which means you’ll need cold drinks in good supply. Sempli’s Incanter looks sort of fun, if you can get past the tipsiness that you might feel watching it spin around. Maybe you’ll put fruits in the borosilicate glass infuser and then pour in a liquor, but I’d opt for water or lemonade because I’m not a boozehound (like you). There is something nice about the vessel doing the mixing for you, and it’ll look oh-so-pretty on your table.

No more wine or champagne drips on your precious tabletop, because this Skultuna Basso Coaster will set the bottle dead center each and every time, thanks to its raised center surface.

Hasami Porcelain Teapot

Not only does this Hasami Porcelain Teapot have a classically modern shape, it shares the same diameter as other pieces in the Hasami Porcelain collection, which allows for easy transport and stacking.

Crafted from a custom blend of clay and porcelain, the surface is softer to the touch than traditional porcelain. Available from the Dwell Store for $55 for a limited time.

Eau Carafe

Similar to black + blum’s ‘Eau Good’ Filter Water Bottle, this Eau Carafe is the ideal candidate for storing water in your fridge. A binchotan active charcoal filter purifies the water while the overall shape is pleasing to hold and pour from; it’s even nice enough to keep it out during dinner. You can’t say that for many water purifiers.

Acacia Honey Dipper

Hmm, perhaps we all need to upgrade our honey dippers- if we even have one to begin with, that is. The hexagonal shape of a honeycomb attached to a polished stainless steel handle allows honey to drizzle easily into your tea or toast. Designer Miriam Mirri brought this clever idea into existence, and we might just have to say it’s the coolest honey-drizzling tool to ever cross our computer screens.

Same Same But Different Glasses

These three glasses are shaped differently yet each hold the same amount of liquid, hence their name. The familial likeness combined with the slight shape variation would add interest and movement to a table top, and, best of all, they’re stackable, so they’ll take up less space than normal glasses.

If simple and spare dinnerware is your preference, you’re sure to like Another Country’s collection.

Ash Glass Set And Carafe

Don’t be afraid of color; this glass set won’t hurt you (unless someone throws one at you). The drips of color are carefully blown directly into the glass, making each one slightly different and unique in gradation. Designer Kira A. Heuer created this set to bring awareness to our relationship with water (“Aesthetic Activism“) and to decrease the use of plastic bottled water by providing “chic and functional” glassware.

All-In-One Bar Tool

Corkscrew, knife, and bottle opener all in one, it’s hard to argue with such efficiency.

Their updated version makes the tool more ergonomic, as it will rest comfortably in your hand, and much more visually appealing.

EM77 Vacuum Jug

Lukewarm coffee is just not acceptable, and this EM77 Vacuum Jug will ensure hot coffee stays hot. When tipped, the rocker stopper automatically opens to let coffee flow out- this limits the amount air entering the jug, thus preventing your coffee from cooling prematurely. You can use the EM77 Vacuum Jug to keep beverages cold as well, so don’t put it in the back of the cupboard when spring comes around.
