I like to have fresh fruit at home whenever I can, but living in Minneapolis the allure of going to the farmers market to purchase my produce is lost in the dead of the winter-- primarily because what I crave the most during the winter is comfort food, and not just a tasty banana or apple. With the winter months fast approaching I am almost certain that my fruit bowls will remain mostly empty for the next four months, which is why more than ever it is important for me to love the look of my fruit bowls, and not just the function that they serve.
The utter lack of fruit in my house in the upcoming months also helps to explain my fascination with the fruit bowls pictured in this post. Not only are they beautiful and unexpected, but they are also sarcastic and humorous-- why shouldn't your banana bowl be molded by the fruit it will help keep contained? Really, why not?
Available in multiple colors--including silver and gold--these Harry Allan designed bowls available at Areaware
will be equally impressive on your kitchen counter, as they will be on your coffee table.
Ranging in price from a very
affordable $35 (for the white peanut bowl
) to a reasonable $300 (for the blue banana bowl
), these pieces will not (entirely) break the bank.
