Forties London Map Plate

Decoupage isn’t always fussy: this large centerpiece bowl makes use of a vintage map in the best possible way.

This is a huge 45cm platter decoupaged in 1940’s vintage map. I have carefully collaged the central london pages across the surface creating a patchworked london town! This shape & size looks great wall mounted or as a centre piece on a table…The piece is finished with a durable sumptuous glossy lacquer & the core is made from bamboo.

These would be great for odds and ends (or, as suggested, gift boxes).

Simplicity drives the design of these nesting containers, with near-invisible lids and self-hinges.

Each set includes 3 boxes, one of each size: 9 x 9 x 3 1/4″, 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 2 1/2″, 6 x 6 x 1 3/4″.

Crushed Bowl (Small)

I am loving these handmade crushed bowls from Muuto.

The Crushed Bowls show big-scale architecture applied on small scale objects. The bowls are composed of equilateral triangles and principles we use for big-scale computer modeling. Adding human ergonomics and aesthetics to the equation we have derived a series of vessels that are carefully crushed for everyday use.

These animal interpretations of old school portraiture are delightful, though I’d vote for the wall plaque option instead of using it as an actual tray.

Not dishwasher safe. Use dish soap to clean. Can also be hung as a wall plaque.”

These are lovely, and much more affordable than they look.

Smoked Root Bowls

The natural sculptural quality of these bowls would add an earthy feel/texture to a room…

“Artisans handcarve the discarded root balls of Chinese fir trees into magnificent bowls that display the character of their parent trees in unique color variations, knots, and small fissures.”

Self-balancing tray

I’ve got to say that I didn’t quite believe this until I saw it in person. You can put drinks on this tray and swing it around and the drinks don’t spill.

Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg Bird’s Wing Dish

Holy. This is the nicest “dish” I’ve ever seen. In fact, I wouldn’t even use it- I’d just admire it upon a table or figure out a way to hang it on a wall.

“The detailing on this bird’s wing dish continues on both sides to create a three-dimensional sculptural piece. Formed of white bisque porcelain by a company steeped in a 250 year tradition of craftsmanship, the superior quality of this dish will astound you.”
