Tabletop

Travel Teapot Set and Bag

You may not need this Travel Teapot Set, but wouldn’t it be nice to have? The grey tubular porcelain vessel is a lesson in simplicity- its two included cups fasten securely to either end to make transport more efficient. Wrap them all up in the included linen bag and be on your way, knowing you’ll have an easy-to-serve hot drink in a lovely little cup whenever you take your next break. There’s also a smaller Travel tea can set and bag if you prefer to carry a single serving.

Marta Tasting Glasses

While you may not be excited by a simple, short glass, you might like the fact that it’s available in a set of 8 for just under $10. Can you do any better than that, with a similar, fine-looking glass? If so, you need join the team here at BLTD, and I’m not kidding (finding nice stuff that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg isn’t easy). There’s also a set of 8 Marta Double Old-Fashioned Glasses and Coolers, should you want to beef up your collection.

Pepper Tray

Pepper dust. If you have a pepper mill, you know all about how it sits just under your mill whenever you set it down, creating little dust piles of pepper. How about a tray to keep it contained? Yes, it’s the smallest detail, and maybe a little unnecessary, but you like to keep your kitchen spic and span, this may be your pepper mill’s new best friend.

Bambus Glass Carafe

How about another nice carafe to hold your hydration source? This handblown carafe was inspired by the bamboo of Zen gardens; it has an elegant handle and a drinking glass that fits perfectly on top. As stated before, a carafe lets you rely less on plastic bottles of water (hooray!) and more on your own two feet… to get water from the office cooler or your fridge’s filter. Perhaps while you walk to replenish said water you can be thankful that it’s clean and plentiful, and that you’re crossing a distance of yards instead of miles, unlike lots of other people in other parts of the world. Did you know you’d get a guilt trip while reading about why a carafe is so great? Surprise, and you’re welcome.

Heller Rainbow Mugs

A big dose of cheerful, rainbow color in the morning would do everyone some good, don’t you think? The Heller Mugs are iconic tableware pieces, first winning the Compasso d’Oro Award in 1964, if you can believe it. This classic set will match any existing vintage pieces, as they’re made using the same molds.

Cold Bruer Coffee Brewer

If you thought cold coffee was for snobs or sugar junkies, think again. Cold brew coffee is often less acidic and less bitter than hot brewed coffee, and more palatable with milk. Using a slow-drip process with an adjustable valve, the Cold Bruer Coffee Brewer lets you play around with brew time to get your ideal cup. However, don’t think you’ll pull this sort of cold brewing off in a quick minute; the recommended brew time is a 6-hour span, at a drip per second.

Ora French Press

Another French Press coffee maker? Yawn. But, wait! This one has a double walled glass body to help keep your coffee hot, plus a cork stopper and a pour spout with absolutely no branding or colors (that I can see) on its body to interrupt your morning reverie and/or kitchen color scheme. The simplicity is hard to beat, no?

Wood Salt & Pepper Shakers by Tomnuk Designs

If your current salt & pepper situation is not appropriate for the dinner table, then maybe you need to grow up a teensy bit and buy some nice shakers. These shakers (solid maple salt shaker and solid walnut pepper shaker) have solid brass screw in caps that add a superb touch to an otherwise very minimal tabletop accessory.

Gaze Coffee Dripper

Any discerning coffee aficionado will occasionally turn their attention to a new and clever coffee dripper, especially if it appears simple and elegant. The Gaze is certainly that, as it’s made up of two double walled glass pieces; one houses the coffee and filter while the other catches your brew. The process is entirely visible, which hopefully will add to your enjoyment rather then your impatience.

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.

Soft Aerating Pourers

You’re not going to want to carry around a bulky wine aerator on all your future picnics this summer, are you? Nah, all you’ll need to bring is one of these little plastic Pourers. It’ll fit into the neck of any bottle and will aerate your wine while making sure there’s no drips or spills- unless you have too much wine, that is, and then all bets are off.

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.
