EDITOR’S PICK: Pearl Beads Dinnerware by LENOX
Lenox is America’s leading tabletop and giftware brand. Lenox shares a passion for design and style with those who love to entertain and celebrate with family and friends. Lenox fine china, crystal, flatware, giftware, home décor and tabletop products are timeless pieces that reflect superb quality and craftsmanship. Pearl Beads, in platinum-rimmed fine white bone china, dress up any table and make for a thoughtful, elegant gift. Spirals of raised white dots grace broad pearlescent bands, and wide bands of platinum add to the pattern’s luster.
EDITOR’S PICK: SODASTREAM
SodaStream can be used to make tons of fun drinks while saving a bit of money (not to mention cutting down on waste from all those cans and plastic bottles). Though already sleek in design, the SodaStream has partnered with Yves Behar to upgrade the machine to the new Source (starting at $99, pictured below). Improvements have been made to the user interface, bottle, touch-response features, and the machine’s visual feedback enhancing and simplifying the user experience.
EDITOR’S PICK: VMATTER 8” Chef Knife; Jade Professional v2.0
The VMatter 8” Chef knife is a modern interpretation of the all-purpose workhorse kitchen tool; $249. VMatter Professional & Executive Knives are made from an amorphous alloy that is both vitreous and metallic. A metal that is vitreous becomes stronger and more elastic than its crystalline counterpart. VMATTER knives combine the best properties of steel and ceramic. It retains its edge sharpness longer than steel, will not rust or become brittle like ceramic. VMATTER is not forged or stamped but injected molded, representing the most dramatic advancement in knife technology in 1,000 years.
