Rosanna Inc.

I’ve said before how I’m not the type of person to have only one set of dishes. I love design too much and it’s too large a part of me to do so.

I recently discovered Rosanna Inc. where it’s all dinnerware all the time. There are so many amazing patterns and designs to check out that I’m positive I could find at least five sets I’d like to have for myself. Here are some of my favorites. I’m especially into the number and Days of Christmas.

Fly-Bird.

Fly-Bird is full of curious little items that make every day life even more interesting. I love little tea-party ready sugar and creamer sets and the Anna set ($204) is divine. The Juicy Salif ($79) is an incredible piece of alien-like design that I would love to have sitting on my kitchen counter. And the Stackable Number Cups ($16) are stark white and beautiful. I can think of several things I could use them for other than drinking eight million cups of coffee.

Jasper Morrison's Coffee Machine.

I’m going to stick with my coffee theme for a little longer today as I introduce to you the Coffee Machine by Jasper Morrison. This beautifully modernistic machine is entirely self-contained: filters, spoon, measuring table, etc and was noted as one of Fortune Magazine’s 25 Best Products. Love it.

Alice in Wonderland.

This Alice in Wonderland dinnerware at Fishs Eddy is awesome. I love the pen and ink feeling of the illustration against the white background of the dishes. And the grotesque stretched Alice on the drinking glass is fantastic. All pieces are priced $4.50-$16.95.

Stain.


Stain is a set of a teacups designed to improve through use by artist Bethan Laura Wood. In the process, they examine the assumption that use is damaging to a product while proving it can be quite the opposite. The interior surface of the cup is treated so as to stain more in predetermined places. The more the cups are used, the more the pattern is revealed. The cups are available in two different stain patterns for £35 a piece through the artist’s website. Ms. Wood is incredibly talented and the site also displays some of her graduate and live projects.

Third Drawer Down: Teatowels and Handkerchiefs.

By placing art into the most domestic of circumstances – on teatowels and handkerchiefs – Third Drawer Down promotes art and every day life. TDD reproduces artwork by contemporary Australian and international artists as limited edition screen prints, some based on illustrations, while others on type. My favorites seem to be primarily by the same artist. Check out the TDD site for a list of ideas on what to do with the teatowels and handkerchiefs besides drying dishes or blowing your nose.

You Harlot, You.

I think this tarted-up teapot and cosy from Trixie Delicious over at Etsy is amaaaaazing. So of couse, that means that they are sold out for the moment. The teapot is a collaboration between Trixie Delicious and Esther Lamb of toggle.etsy. A two cup vintage-inspired department store teapot has a naughty girl makeover while the tea cosy is stunning in pink satin and black lace with a sexy vintage lingerie inspired design. The teapot has a pop in strainer and the cosy is fully lined in pink cotton to keep your tea warm.

Chatchada.

Global Table.

Located in New York’s SoHo, Global Table houses a carefully edited selection of dishes and accessories from around the world with an emphasis on simple lines and finishes. Right now I’m digging this pitcher ($30 – blue please!), cup (n/a) and tea set ($70).
