I love Loyal Loot’s Log Bowls – a mixture of organic and man-made with their natural bases and high-gloss, painted interiors. Each bowl is handmade using locally reclaimed trees and finished with a water-based, furniture grade finish.

D-Vision makes some very nice bowls for fruit and other small food items…Bubblicious takes on the form of the fruit. Flatables is an origami plate, and the Small Apple Dish provides a place for both the uneaten apple and the core.

I love Claire Coles’ porcelain tableware, particularly the set that has been imprinted with delicate, lace-like impressions. So gorgeous!

I love this new line of furniture by Front Design called Shade – a series of tableware that is fabricated with shaded renderings. It nicely blurs physical reality with illustration.

Saw some new work up at Benjamin Hubert’s website. I love the Impression Crockery – a soup bowl that was formed from a single surface with an impression for the spoon holder. Equally nice is the Foam Twist Light – a floor lamp made from re-purposed medical packaging waste and acrylic.

Elise Rijnberg created a table cloth that is diagrammed to assist those of us who are less refined with the proper setting of a dinner table. I also love her Piattona flatware – gorgeous and minimal in form.

New tableware from Vitamin – I love how the geometric design and how it creeps onto the plate.

Publique Living was at the NSS this year with their PopMat Paper Mats – after browsing their website, it’s clear that paper goods are but a small part of their business – they also make a bunch of home decor items. My favorite is the 2ply Veneer Tray – it reminds me of banana leaf for some reason.

Charles & Marie are having a pre-sale of their Hot Cold Mug. The mug is made with a heat sensitive pigment that causes it to turn from black to white as it heats up. So, it starts by reading “COLD”, and after you fill it up with a hot liquid, the text turn into “HOT”. Clever, eh? The Hot Cold Mug is a spin off of Charles & Marie’s On Off Mug.
Available for pre-sale here.

There’s no denying that Riedel makes quality glassware, but the product series that I love most from Riedel are their decanters. They are so gorgeous with their fluid shapes and simple forms. I really wanted to put one of their decanters on our wedding registry, but felt too guilty about the price tag, so I didn’t. But regardless, they are beautiful and maybe some day we’ll take the plunge and get one.
Some of my favorites: the Amadeo Decanter the Swan Decanter, and the Cornetto Decanter.
