There's nothing better at BALTIC Shop then unpacking new gifts, especially when they're new home accessories in bright and beautiful glass and stoneware influenced by mid-century design. So, although the weather is pretty miserable, the new Form homewares range from cubic has cheered us up no end. With kitchen accessories including storage jars, milk jugs and sugar pots to cool carafes with matching glasses, we've chosen a selection of our favourite pieces explaining why we are so obsessed with our stoneware.
This small and perfectly formed stoneware tea pot makes me want to take tea in the garden on a summer's day. With its strong geometric pattern and 50's design, I'd definitely get the matching mugs too for some retro refreshment in between the gardening.
I'm a huge fan of Mad Men, so this carafe and matching glasses gives me a chance to mix a drink Don Draper style. And because the colours are so bright, I'm going to ignore the weather this evening, make myself something decadent and fizzy and clink some ice in the...living room. Cheers!
I loved opening the boxes when the Form homewares range arrived. I've just had a new kitchen installed and now I've found my new kitchen accessories! I can't wait to mix and match with these amazing canisters as the geometric and colours will work wonderfully against my new grey walls. Now I just have to decide what to put in them...
Becky, Online Manager: Form Tea Cups & Saucers, Milk Jug &Sugar Pot
Sara stole my tea pot! But if you ask me what's my favourite time to drink a good cup of coffee, I'd say the 1950's. Seriously though, they just did it better back then with cups, saucers, a milk jug and sugar lumps. Throw in some stoneware with a cool mid-century design and I'm throwing myself a very vintage tea party and that makes me happy.
And did we mention that they all come in fabulous matching gift boxes too so would make the perfect gift for any one in your life who appreciates good geometric design and relishes a bit of retro! Shop our Form Range today.
