Tabletop

Deuce Pitcher/Watering Can

Another weird watering can? Of course! And, even better, this one could also be a carafe, if you should so desire, as one spout is for plants and the other for pouring drinks. Use the long spout as a handle when filling your glass, or, alternatively, grasp the 1 1/4 liter body to water plants. This double function will let you donate any other watering cans and carafes that are cluttering up your cabinets while also delighting in your ability to find such well-designed containers. Go ahead, pat yourself on the back.

Marmoreal White or Black Board

So, maybe you can’t quite afford to have Max Lamb’s Marmoreal Bathroom or even a Marmoreal Side Table. You’re not alone. However, if you’re really, truly in love with the engineered stone, maybe you can afford to serve your cheese on a Marmoreal Board. My favorite is the black (it looks like outer space!) but the white is equally appealing as it showcases the colors just as well.

Could be a good gift for a friend/family member too.

Piippu Pot

The Piippu Pot by Kaksikko looks a like a distant relative of the Svante Watering Can, no? Its shape and side handle reference traditional tea service, yet the addition of the filter holder makes it suitable for coffee as well. Each pot is crafted by hand by designer Salla Luhtasela and is available in a black engobe finish or white gas-fired porcelain.

Ripple Glasses and Carafe

If you’re drinking your favorite cold beverage out of a chipped mug, snap up this set of Ripple Glasses pronto. Mouth blown into the mold, each glass features a lovely rippled surface. Look closer and you’ll see that each glass has a varied height to its collar; that adds interest, of course, but it also means you’ll be able to tell which glass is yours when your friends and family are around. Go ahead and get the matching carafe too- you might as well, as the whole grouping is quite affordable.

Chamfer Serving Boards

When you need to dress up your dinner spread, you can’t go wrong with one of these Chamfer Serving Boards. The ebony marble or clear crystal glass are heavy and luxe, which means you could put cheap crackers and cheese on them and they’d still look nice (though you would never do that, would you?). The sloped edges look sharp, and have the added benefit of easy lifting from the table.

Sheepopco Popcorn Bowl

See that little side bit on this Sheepopco Popcorn Bowl? That’s what you get to eat, because the rest is mine. Or, okay, I’ll share, but let’s do the fun thing and mix something with the plain popcorn for the right sweet-and-salty pairing. That’ll make movie nights all the more fun. Two bowls are included in the pack; one standard popcorn bag will fill both.

Naturally Cooling Ceramic Wine Cooler

When you’re drinking rosé or white wine, do you really want to deal with ice and buckets? Nope. Get yourself this Ceramic Wine Cooler from Magisso and then pat yourself on the back for making chilled drinks that much easier. Soak the cooler in cold water for just a few minutes, then let the natural evaporation process keep your bottle perfectly chilled for 2 to 4 hours, no ice necessary. A glazed base prevents water rings. Smart, right? It does the trick; I own one myself and couldn’t be more pleased (unless it somehow opened the bottle of wine for me, of course).

Los Angeles-based designer Chris Earl is the man with the blue paint brush, and he splatters indigo glaze across his hand-thrown tumblers, coffee cups and bowls with equal enthusiasm.

Jackson Pollock Table Textiles

Do you find these Jackson Pollock Table Textiles amusing? Those of us with any interest in art history may be a tiny bit offended (eating on a likeness of a Pollock painting? Gasp!), yet the pragmatic side of us must admit his art could hide a multitude of dining sins, thus making these textiles very… convenient.

Patina Bottle Opener

A beautiful bottle opener? In this case, it’s true. Cofield’s bottle openers are solid brass with three available patina finishes. A polished edge sets off the patina nicely, and somewhat gives an illusion of inset stone. Now, the hard part will be deciding which patina you prefer- do you like the Polychrome, Turquoise, or Black best? Be sure to take a look at Cofield’s Brass Clocks too, which have the same patina treatment.
