Fall Table, by Serrv
Serrv has some lovely new things for the table and kitchen in warm earth tones, made from natural materials like acacia and mango wood, rattan, raffia, and coconut. A few of my favorites, all of which are under $50:
This Mango Wood turned bowl from the artisans of Thai Tribal Crafts is beautiful, and sculptural enough to display.
Serrv offers this set from one of my favorite artisan groups, COMPARTE. This set of four handled bowls comes in 4 sizes, ranging from 3 1/2" to 7" in diameter. Wood fired and great for side dishes or soups. Oven and microwave safe. A matching lidded crock is also pictured, available for $45.
From SAFFY Handicrafts in Phillipines a set of two serving boards are made from acacia wood. They have a beautiful grain and smooth finish and would be lovely as a cheese board or with a rustic loaf of bread.
Made by the artisans of COPAVIC in the Italian tradition, this 9" x 9" hand-blown decanter is made from recycled glass bottles and has a pleasant shape and feel.
