Koki Ice Cream Scoop

I scream, you scream, we all scream for… you know the rest. Make sure you have a decent scoop for your ice cream, because you don’t want it to melt while you wrestle your serving (plus others) out of the box or tub. The Koki’s handle is comfortable to hold and has a length suitable for all types of containers. It’s perfect for soft and creamy ice creams (homemade is best!).

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.

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.

Duo Server

How to keep your cheese visually separated from your baguette and/or crackers? By reminding your family/guests that the cheese stays on the marble circle dammit(!). But you’re not obsessive compulsive, are you, so you wouldn’t say something like that and you surely wouldn’t mind a few crumbs encroaching upon your beloved cheese… right? Especially when the pairing of a solid walnut cutting board looks so nice against a white (or dark) marble circle. The parts can be separated and used individually (marble=trivet).

Geo Thermos

Hello Geo. Nice sharp edges sure set this guy apart from the usual thermos. And the colors (!), that geometric shape, the semi-retro design… who would have thought that a thermos could draw such an admiring audience? The Geo thermos holds one liter and comes in the colors purple, grey, black, white, red and turquoise.

The Soy Sauce Cruet

A spill-proof Soy Sauce Cruet? Pfft, you say. I didn’t believe it either until seeing it in action. It has a beak-like spout that’s built into the adjustable cap; soy sauce (or olive oil or vinegar) simply flows out without a drip. Is this a game changer for anyone who loves their soy sauce (or olive oil or vinegar)? I think so.

Sasso Serving Trays

It’s a large, flat wooden serving tray, so what’s the big deal? As is often the case, the big deal is in the smallest of details. A pebble-like shape finishes in a precise edge, giving the tray a very subtle, sculptural feel that puts the beauty of the wood front and center. But wait, is it too nice for your snacks or hors d’oeuvres? Nope, the price is pretty friendly despite its high-end look.

Spoonless Container

No spoon needed with this container. Just remove the cork lid from the small spout and pour. What will you store in it? Up to you, of course, but all sorts of things would work. Dry goods like loose leaf tea, rice, or sugar perhaps? Use it in the kitchen for oft-used ingredients or on the table for serving. In either case, the containers are pretty enough to be left out for all to see.

Jellies Family

A little prettiness is entirely expected during summer soirees, so maybe you’ll want to add a new set of tumblers or trays to your tabletop. Kartell’s Jellies Family is pretty, of course, and it’s made from colorful and transparent PMMA plastic. This shouldn’t be a surprise since Kartell is well known for their use of plastic in furniture and other accessories, yet the Jelly pieces just look so much nicer than what you’d expect from plain ol’ plastic. Patricia Urquiola designed the collection with an organic pattern in mind, with jelly moulds being a primary inspiration.

Honey Pot & Oak Dipper

Maybe you like your honey in a cute jar or bottle, but there are some of us who would like a honey receptacle to be visually quiet and serviceable, and to preferably reduce any drips that seem unavoidable with plastic bottles and lids. I’m thinking a glass jar is the way to go, and there are two that seem to fit the bill. Above you see the LSA Serve Honey Pot & Oak Dipper. It’s made of mouth-blown glass and has a ridged oak dipper for dispensing. The Honey Jar w/ Silicone Spoon from Blomus (below) is also a glass jar, yet it features a silicone spoon for drizzling. Which one is best*?

Serving Trays by Urbancase

No serving trays? Good, because now you have an excuse to buy one or two of Darin Montgomery’s Serving Trays. Made from FSC certified solid domestic maple, each tray is hand finished with food safe oil/wax. Subtle curved edges provide a functional handle while also adding to the beauty of the simple design. Your tea (or snack) time just became more special.

Moon Phase Dishes

How about a little lunar imagery on your dishes? This stoneware set has black painted moon phases, and, as each dish is around 3.5″ in diameter, they would be a good fit in the kitchen for smaller portions (snacks) or in a dressing area for coins, jewelry, and other small pocket contents.

SAIC Origin Cuatro Platters

Platters with grids will bring out the best of your OCD, or at least that’s what we’ll hope. SAIC student Allison Rokusek uses various fine-lined grids for the design of these porcelain platters, as she believes grids “help section the world into more digestable pieces.” Makes sense, doesn’t it?

Doppio Round Cutting Block

Bad news: this Doppio Round Cutting Block is not cheap. It would be so much better if it lost a zero in its price tag, as right now it’s about the price of a very decent armchair. Alas, we’ll settle for appreciating the double layer of marble- the dark side is Nero Marquina marble from Spain and the white is Carrara Marble from Italy- and imagining it upon our tabletops.

Hix Marble Serving Board

What the what?!? Can it be? A marble serving board hand-cut with beveled edges? Talk about impressing your guests, fine Agaria Marble in a gem-like shape will make anything you put on it look like a million bucks (probably). Appetizers, charcuterie, you name it, it’s going to look like it came from a chef’s kitchen on this kind of serving board.
