Purpur

 

I love ritual, and Purpur looks like it would lend itself to such things instantly. Roxanne Flick‘s conceptual graduation project to create a tea set inspired by the beauty of nature and art is stunning. Using the form and behavior of the flamingo, Flick designed a kettle, teacups, and sugar and cream bowls made from porcelain, oak saucers and an oak, glass, and granite table.

Let’s Talk Pantries + Organizational Tips

In my dream home I have an entire room as a pantry, a la Martha. But in the real world it’s about working with what you’ve got – whether that be a closet you can convert, a corner to build out, or a few existing cabinets that need to do all the heavy lifting. Or you can get creative, make it an entire wall of open shelving or a free-standing piece of furniture. Whatever the case, we all know food storage in the kitchen is a necessity, read on for some organizational tips and inspiration!

Keys to a keeping a super functional pantry:
1. Go through and clean it out regularly.
2. Use it for more than just food – serving pieces, cookbooks – if you have the space.
3. Have everything visible, or as much as possible. Risers work great!
4. Group like with like (cans, baking ingredients, etc).
5. Place the things you use most often at arm’s reach.
6. Think vertically as well as horizontally, store cookie sheets and serving trays upright.
7. Set shelves at different heights to use your space best.
8. Bring in baskets to collect dish towels and more.
9. Use glass containers to store dry goods, they’ll stay fresh longer and you’ll always know how much you have.
10. Take advantage of the inside of the door as well, it’s a great place to keep spices and food storage supplies.

Shapes Mugs

 

My morning coffee is the reason I get out of bed. Each day I look forward to the ritual involved, while the coffee is brewing I choose my mug – I purged them last year, so every one is a favorite. AANDERSSON‘s porcelain Shapes Mugs would make for an easy addition with their geometric handles and smooth finishes.

Canon Wine Tilt

 

Canon Wine Tilt takes any table or countertop to the next level. Crafted in 3D printed porcelain, Canon is designed to hold most standard wine bottles. The cylinder tilts the bottle at a 45-degree angle and can function as either storage or to provide greater aeration for an already open bottle. At the base, its horizontal tunnel holds a standard corkscrew and is the perfect hiding place for a cork and foil, to keep the table tidy.

Nordic Kitchen

 

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you likely own a very heavy cast iron pan. Eva Solo‘s Nordic Kitchen line reinvents the classic – and then some – by starting with an aluminum and using the cast iron as a finish. A special four layer coating gives each pot and pan a surface that doesn’t require a lot of fat when cooking and that’s easy to clean, and and oak handle adds a touch of Scandinavian design. Use them on all heat surfaces, including induction, then throw them in the dishwasher to clean. The collection includes various sizes of pots, frying pans, a saucepan, a sauté pan, and a grill frying pan, as well as a beech wood knife stand, black mixing bowls, and oak and leather cutting boards.

The studio creates contemporary furniture, lighting, and accessories with a focus on form, sustainability, and function. Sorensen-Jolink taught himself how to design in an attempt to further understand space and the objects within them.

Cloth Napkins

Fabric napkins equate themselves with a special occasion to me, but it doesn’t really have to be that way does it? I’ve been trying to use the mindset that every day is a good day to use things that feel special, including the cloth napkins in my pantry. Using them for an ordinary Tuesday dinner has the ability to make the pot of soup you’ve been eating for a few days taste 100% better.
