summer living week – shishi living with oil + vinegar

I will venture to say most of us keep our oil and vinegar in the same bottles they came in … perhaps its laziness, maybe it’s “cool” to show off the labels, possibly it brings fond memories of a great dinner al fresco or just because the bottles remind us of a wonderful holiday in Spain, Tuscany or Provence.

A prime example that great design can be found in even the most mundane of everyday vessels, are these stunningly beautiful and very stylish double-walled oil-and-vinegar carafes.  Handblown by the Italian firm Ichendorf (I know, the name is molto italiano??!!), these containers can be found at the A+R Store and will put you back US$22.00.  Don’t you think it’s time to throw away those old bottles?
