The hour is nigh for alfresco dining, but there’s no reason to schlep that crystal decanter under the stars. Join us as we share our favorite unbreakable wares, from melamine dishes to reusable utensils.
Last weekend, the little boy who lives next door set up a lemonade stand on the street, right outside our apartment. It was predictably adorable, and we gladly paid our 50 cents for a small cup of the tart-and-sweet stuff, which was predictably delicious. The pitcher he was using, however, was not so awesome: fussy spout with a difficult flip-top, unwieldy handle, awkward proportions. We would have loved to trade his less-than-stellar pourer with this sleek model designed by Hanna Werning for Sagaform, sure to eliminate some of the drips and spills.
Plastic bottles are overtaking America's landfills but in In Japan, disposable chopsticks are being tossed at the rate of 250 billion sets per year. Wherever you reside, it's a great idea to get a reusable version. These colorful bamboo pairs from Yuen'to are easily tossed into your purse or bag when you're bringing your lunch to work, and the case doubles as a holder while you're eating. Pick yours up at LA's A+R Store.
