I opened up the new T Style magazine yesterday and thought it was thin. Design & Living is my bag, and I was totally ready for some good shelter porn, but I was left wanting. I guess if you pay more, you get more.

That said, there was a beautiful picture of three carafes floating in space (CB2, Lobmeyer & Iittala above - pic by Ilan Rubin) and it made me want to do a bedside carafe/wine carafe roundup just for the sheer fun of it. I not only love carafes, I love the concept of something that sits by your bedside that NURTURES you and speaks, like flowers, to the organic side of your nighttime reverie (particulary post drinking)....

So, without further ado, here's a little sexy roundup of glass carafes for bedroom or dining room use that I've seen over the last year. If I didn't have an 18 month old and many more bedside tables, I'd have all of them.

Best,

>> Off Pitcher & Cup by Esque (recycled glass)

 

>> Essence Turquoise Decanter by Alfredo Häberli

 

>> Italian Carafe and Wine Glasses by Esque (recycled glass)

 

>> Hargreave Carafe with Glass at Clio

>> Cora Carafe by CB2

>> Classic Bedside Water Carafe Set

>> Bedside Carafe by Crate & Barrel

 

>> Beaker Glass Pitcher by CB2 (made of borosilicate)
