  1. Who says kitchen utensils have to be boring! Although I do have to say that the Alessi PSJS Juicy Salif Citrus Squeezer does remind me so much of the ship that Serleena arrives to Earth in Men In Black 2, or is that just me lol

  2. These sculptural cast-concrete planters caught our eye as being perfect when presented in a massive row poolside at a Zaha Hadid-designed beach house. The tallest version of these is 45 inches (about 110 centimeters) high, an impressive presence even without plants. We’d imagine these will look spectacular used to display a bunch of tall dry grasses or branches, outdoors or in. The planters, made by Phoenix, Arizona-based Kornegay Designs , are called the Quartz Series.

  3. Alessi definitely makes aesthetically pleasing products that feel good in the hand (they are weighted just right). What impresses me is their use of 18/10 steel. Wonderful selection Astro G – I must look into buying that Apostrophe Orange Peeler.
