Doily News (coasters)

A novel idea, coasters made from newspapers, which means you can recycle them after you’ve used them…not a bad idea.

They are made out of unused newspapers, so each set comes with 100 coasters with a very traditional pattern but rather than being made from your traditional paper, this is made from unused newspapers, each coaster different from the previous.

Plastic Lace Placemats

I recently purchased some of these and I have to say I’m quite pleased; it’s an old fashioned look modernized into a super flat thin design (it almost looks like a tattoo on the table)…plus, cleanup is super easy- a damp sponge or a quick rinse beats the heck out of laundering/ironing.

Available in black or white.

Concrete Tumblers (set of 2)

You know how sometimes in movies people throw a glass at whoever they’re mad at and it ends up smashing against a wall? These glasses would do some serious damage…other than that, they look pretty cool.

These fantastic glasses are a great combination of real concrete and glass and work perfectly for any occasion. A dirty Martini will work just as well as a neat Hendricks or any other high octane beverage. But, they also do a great job as water glasses because their design is so timeless and simple…

TUKAANI

While this utensil is most certainly classified as a ‘luxury good’, I would be very curious to see/hear if it’s worth the price tag.

The sterling silver TUKAANI is a hand made eating device for Asian food consumers in the West.
It may be held as traditional chopsticks. But unlike the disposable wooden chopsticks, TUKAANI is hand washable and much easier to set on – and use at table.
The matt surface and taut movement allow steady grip in the hand. The curl at the end of the TUKAANI provides eased food picking and delivery to the mouth. The loop also allows easier hanging, storage and display.
The Toucan’s bill provided inspiration for this cutlery project

1 TUKAANI: € 293
1 100% linen serviette: € 16
1 holder: € 48.50

Nordic Rock: Stone Ice Cubes

I’d be afraid of forgetting and chomping down out of habit like real ice, but I guess you’d only do that once.

Nordic Rock is mined from ancient Swedish pollution-free base rock. It is the purest way of cooling your drink – literally ‘on the rocks’. Stone does not melt, which means no unclean water in your glass. They are also reusable making them very eco-friendly.
To use, simply place the stone ice cubes in the freezer for approximately one hour before use. For a normal glass, two or three Nordic Rocks will be fine. They give off their cold gradually and equally.
For maintenance, rinse your stones under clean water and store them in the leather pouch provided. They are then ready to serve you again any time to your fullest satisfaction.

Comes as a set of ten complete with leather storage pouch.
