Every home needs a little bit of luxury, a little something special. Browsing the aisles at NY Now, New York's twice-annual gifts and housewares show, I spotted plenty of shiny, special things that will add a little something extra to your space. From beautiful hardcover books to high-end cheese boards, there's something here for everyone.
What could be more luxurious than beautiful editions of your favorite books? These are by Rifle Paper Co. (I asked when Crime and Punishment would be available, but I am afraid they did not get my joke.)
Bottle openers by Gentner Design.
A (very beautiful) set of glasses designed specifically for drinking whisky — like the modern version of all those vintage cocktail sets you see on Etsy. By Fferrone.
A serving bowl, or possibly the world's most beautiful fishbowl. The top rests gently on the base, so you can spin it around and make it all space-agey. By Finell.
The Slide server, also by Finell. Only for your prettiest cheeses.
Pendants by Tom Dixon in all kinds of shiny colors.
Who knew a trivet could be so elegant? This is the LIFT Trivet by Fruitsuper.
Also by Fruitsuper, these elegant coasters sure to elevate everyday drinking to an art form.
Wouldn't these whisky stones, by Areaware, be the perfect pair with the coasters above? We think so.
