Tabletop

Emma Thermal Cup

It’s getting colder, so we’re going to prefer our tea and coffee very, very hot, thank you very much. But what about our poor little hands? Well, when you use the Emma Thermal Cup its outer layer will insulate the hand from heat and keep your beverage hot. Of course, when the weather turns warm again, just think how perfect a scoop or two of ice cream would be in one of these.

Future Glass Set

The colors of the Future Glass Set remind one of the Spectra Vases, and, lo and behold, they’re from the very same glassworks Holmegaard.

Dearborn Glassware

What says ‘grown-up glassware’ more than the $70 per piece price tag of the Dearborn Glassware? Maybe the intricate, fluted Borosilicate glass, or the knowledge that each piece was expertly created by master glassblowers in the Czech Republic. Borosilicate glass, if you didn’t know, gives thermal resistance, which translates into a durability appropriate for daily use- it’s safe to use in ovens, microwaves, and dishwashers- and that gives us all a little more understanding to the collection’s value (and, ultimately, the aforementioned price tag).

Bodum® Pebo Vacuum Coffee Maker

Are you up for a bit of chemistry when making your morning brew? If so, this Pebo Vacuum Coffee Maker from Bodum could be an interesting experiment. How does it work? Steam escapes from the bottom bowl into the top, mixing with the oils of your coffee. Once you remove it from heat, and the newly brewed coffee filters back down into the bottom bowl for serving. That’s a simplified version, of course, but you get the idea. It’ll take a little longer (5 to 11 minutes) than a regular coffee maker but the brewing time and temperature are calibrated precisely for a perfect cup each time.
