Design, innovate, elevate: These three pillars of Bormioli Rocco’s philosophy date back to the Italian company’s founding in 1825, and they remain in effect to this day. The curvy vases, stemware, and tableware reflect the Romans’ love of the sensual and come in colors reminiscent of the sea. Designed for professional and home use, these pieces are to be employed as well as enjoyed. Doubt it? Take a gander at Bormioli Rocco’s line of sexy glass storage containers, which in matter of form and function put their plastic brethren to shame.
Add vibrant style to any meal
Skip those $11 tuna sandwiches from that ridiculously crowded sandwich stop downstairs and bring your lunch to work instead. We’ve made it downright easy to do with this selection of food-storage pieces, from Zojirushi’s Classic Bento lunch set to Bormioli Rocco’s Frigoverre collection. And, while you’re at it, make your own iced coffee and put it in one of the stainless mugs on offer. If you drink iced coffee as much as we do, you’ll save enough over the summer to pay for a vacation.
Raise the bar with these standout essentials
As with assembling a wardrobe, building a great bar begins with high-quality basics. Start with wine, Champagne, old-fashioned, and highball glasses in top-grade cut-crystal, such as Bormioli Rocco's refined offerings. A decanter and ice bucket are must-haves, no matter the season. Buy accessories in boxed sets for added elegance and organization; Metrokane's Rabbit Tool Kit features a corkscrew, bottle stopper, and pourers.
