It’s the small items that we interact with on a daily basis that show how much we care about the details. Something small but well considered can elevate every day so it’s just a little nicer. With food as such a big part of our lives, the tools we use to cook and eat are some of the most frequently used. to improve that experience we have a selection of items that we think will add a moment of joy to your day every time you use them.
Keeping a home clean and organized is one of the best ways to keep it stress-free. Azmaya makes this beautiful Box that has been designed to perfectly store rice. the style and craftsmanship are so beautiful that it takes a simple storage box and turns it into an object you want to display on your counter.
Azmya was started in 1997 as a tableware and craft collective by some of Japan’s greatest artists, designers, and craftspeople. Based out of Niigata on Japan's main island they aim to create products that can be used for 1000 years when properly cared for.
With rice stored so perfectly, you want something equally stylish to cook with. Jia's Steamer set offers the perfect solution. This modular set consists of a ceramic base and lid with cedarwood baskets that can be added for various dishes. each of these baskets has a perforated terracotta base that smartly absorbs excess moisture.
In addition to the standard cedar baskets, they have other optional components as well. in this case, the rice cooking lid is the perfect option. This inner pot lid transforms the steamer into a quick and delicious rice cooker. The JIA Steamer Rice Cooking Lid features a double layered lid system that retains steam and heat to speed up the cooking process and give the rice the perfect texture. The inner pot is able to seal in the flavor and drive moisture into the rice, making the rice soft and fluffy. When the rice is cooked give it a quick stir with the serving spoon to distribute the moisture and coat the grains evenly for better taste and texture.
to accompany your meal we have another one of our other favorites from Azmaya, their traditional side-handled teapot. Every detail of the design has been considered to increase the enjoyment of its use. By placing the handle on the side it creates a more relaxed and ergonomic motion when pouring. This coupled with the lightweight ceramic used throughout to make this one of the most comfortable teapots we have ever used. That ceramic also contributes to its style. Each teapot is fired with cobalt pigment added to enhance the color and is left unglazed to appreciate it’s natural beauty
A great dining experience extends beyond small object and includes the surfaces we use. Our latest obsession is the My series from Normann Copenhagen. Designed by Nicholai Wiig Hansen the My Chair has won the prestigious Interior Innovation Award in 2014. The design is timeless and has a harmonious and inviting feel. Constructed of molded oak veneer with lacquered steel legs. My Table is an all-round table with a simple construction and same harmonious look. The table shares the rigorous and elegant design of My Chair with its rounded corners and same angles and curves of the frame.
All of these pieces come together they fade into the background and help you make an evening with friends or family you won't want to forget.
