If you like them you can get them from my Envelop shop.

This is a beautiful way to decorate your table in subtle ways and at the same time protect your dinner table from hot pans and tea pots.

These beautiful trivets are made of natural felt.

Please visit the Studio Ditte website for more information. 

Now that it’s winter it is the perfect time to enjoy a cup of tea. For the last two days I’ve been showing you different tea cups (Something for tea drinkers today and Teabag Mug ) and today I would like to show you a tea set called Hearty designed by Wagokoro-Ya.

The last few days have been quite cold here in Brisbane and I’ve enjoyed having a hot cuppa especially at night (Thankfully Brisbane has a very short winter, yay!). Since the last few days have been cold, I’ve found myself wrapped around a nice warm blanket sitting in front of my computer to do my work.

The Hearty tea set is available for purchase through Generate.

Following on from yesterday, I showed you the beautiful Teabag Mug by Bailey Doesn’t Bark, today I wanted to show another great tea cup. This tea cup is called Peel and it was designed by Nendo.

A section of the rim has been ‘peeled’ away for the tea bag string to hang out of the cup and for the spoon to remain inside the cap when you drink. It also comes with a handy lid that you can use as a small dish or to rest your tea bag. 

Please visit the Nendo website to find out more.

Sometimes the simplest designs appeal to me the most. Here is one example of such a design.

I love the simple hand drawn illustration. The Teabag Mug was designed by Bailey Doesn’t Bark.

I thought this plate was such a great idea. I think it would definitely make children (and dare I say, even adults) eat their vegetables. I think my mum would have made great use of it with us as kids because we were very fussy eaters (not anymore though).

Food Face designed by Jason Amendolaraby for Fred and Friends

And if the plate wasn’t enough you can always try the Airfork One designed by Sibylle Stoeckli/ECAL for Fred and Friends

If you would like to find out more about Fred and Friends please visit their website here. They have an incredible range of unique designs and I’m sure some of them will just make you laugh!

Today I felt inspired by the work of Kim Westad. I absolutely love all the whirl dishes as they are very unique. 

If you would like to see the rest of Kim Westad’s work please visit her website here. I think I would be very happy to use the whirl dishes in my own kitchen for everyday use

If you like creepy crawlies and insects this might be the perfect dinnerware for you! Each piece is hand-built and they feature original illustrations by Laura Zindel. You can purchase all these items at Blackbird.

a. Tarantula Espresso Cup & Saucer
b. Spider Bread & Butter plate

c. Cave Spider Espresso Cup & Saucer
d. Black Beetle Mug

e. Snake Dinner Plate
I think I could definitely see myself enjoying a delicious meal out of this tableware – except for maybe the Snake Dinner Plate, I’ve got a serious aversion to snakes!

f. Grasshopper Espresso Cup & Saucer
g. Bee Bread & Butter plate

h. Beetle Charger plate
i. Spider Stadium Bowl

If you would like to find out more about Laura Zindel and her work please visit her website here.

I think this dinnerware could be great for a theme party or Halloween party, everyday use would be best!. I think my younger sister would like it (she has the tendency to go for unique pieces like this and her recurrent theme in her paintings are skulls). One of the things I like about this dinnerware is that just by simply adding a unique illustration to things that we use on a daily basis can have a dramatic effect in the overall look of the item and the way you feel about it.

Yesterday I showed you how food was the main source of inspiration for creating a variety of designs. Minale-Maeda from the Netherlands take it a little step further by actually working with the food itself (Minale-Maeda is formed by Mario Minale and Kuniko Maeda). Take for example this tablecloth which is a combination of food and tableware:

Then we have the Cake Table (a) and the Tompouse cake table (b). They look very tasty…

I will never look at my dinner plate the same way after seeing this. To see the rest of their work please visit their website here.
