Spotlight On Food52
Food52, for those of you who aren’t familiar, is a beautiful website devoted to the art of cooking. They have recipes, an abundance of helpful resources (this PSA on gladware among them) and a hotline section devoted entirely to answering reader questions. They’re committed to inspiring the chef in everyone, because they believe that cooking at home is the catalyst for greater family connectedness, and environmental sustainability.
One of my clients recently reminded me of the fact that in addition to all of that, Food52 has a beautiful array of home goods available. The fairly concise inventory is nonetheless consistently (ahem) tasteful. The product offering is a mix of elevated necessities and quirky delights. And everything seems to possess that slightly rustic, pared-back French-y vibe that’s always on time and in style.
Peep these lovelies:
Schale Glass Canisters I love the seamless look of these all-glass canisters.
Glass Simple Storage Containers More glass canister action, though these are large enough to decant household essentials from their distractingly loud packaging into something thoroughly more serene-looking.
Marble & Metal Canister Marble and metal. A winning pair if ever there was one. Use the large one for cooking utensils in the kitchen, and the small one for makeup brushes or pens. Either way, this is some seriously elevated storage.
Acrylic Curiosities Box There’s something magical about the direct intersection of display case with storage element that’s at play here. It’s a kick in the pants to take great care for not only the contents, but the arrangement of your belongings, as well. And when you’re attuned to the beauty of your everyday objects, well then the whole world belongs to you or whatever Lao Tzu said.
Brass Catch All This tray looks like a gold bar and I have no qualms about it. Maybe the more reflective it is, the more likely you’ll be to use it appropriately?
Wire Potato Basket Basically what you’ve got here is a round wire basket. Only its size is just so on the nose, you know? And that blue reads to me like the Mediterranean Sea…
Print Hanging Frame An elegant, no-fuss method for franging your art. (That’s frame/hang, not a typo, obviously).
Vintage-Inspired French Push Broom, 12.75″ I’m not sure, but I think if you can make a broom that’s beautiful you know some of the key secrets to this life.
That, or you’re exceptionally high maintenance.
Maybe the two go hand in hand.
Who’s judging? (Not us.)
