I hardly ever set my table for anything. Mostly because I hardly ever eat at home, and rarely do I host dinner parties. Yet, when I do, I like knowing that I have cool, innovative pieces in my cupboards. Since I will be doing a lot of hosting during the upcoming holidays, and because I've decided to serve tap water instead of bottled water, I have been on the lookout for carafes or pitchers.
In my search for cool carafes I stumbled across the online store GSelect. OMG, I'm in love with this store. I love their cool designs, and their diverse collection of designers. Although I was in the lookout for carafes, it was hard for me not to pay attention to other items (like the Totem Cups pictured here).
Not only that, but a lot of their items aren't exaggeratedly expensive (all of the items I liked were under $100). Plus, the website is designed intelligently and with quirk.
