EMERALD

March 5, 2016

Color, color, color.

Iittala’s new glass color is breath-taking. A vivid green, first featured in Aalto’s collection in 1932. Has now inspired a new color of glass for Iittala’s portfolio.

Emerald is a jewel like color that gives a luxurious feel to glass. This sophisticated color has been added to several of Iittala’s collections.

Barcelona Bird Feeder

March 22, 2013

Spring is finally here and what a better way to start the season, than with the Barcelona Bird Feeder for our feathered friends!

The Barcelona Bird feeder brings a unique, stylish and sculptured look to your yard. The designer, Monique Engelund got the inspiration from the famous Barcelona Pavilion, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1929. It’s made of durable acacia wood from sustainable European forests. The feeding table is located under the roof, while the bird bath sits out in the open and is removable for easy cleaning. The bird feeder comes with two removable spikes to secure the bird feed or maybe an apple for that special treat.
