A tad bored with stainless-steel, industrial-inspired kitchens? These Retro Glass Canisters with screw-top lids promise to add a touch of old-fashioned charm ($89 for a set of 4; comptoirdefamille.net, 617-266-7970).
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner can be moveable feasts when you set Comptoir de Famille’s Terrace Teak weatherproof folding table and stools out in your garden (table $295, stools $99 each; comptoirdefamille.net, 617-266-7970).
Z Gallerie’s 16-inch-high Cambridge glass jar is perfect for summer drinks, like the cool watermelonade in our June 2008 issue ($34.95; zgallerie.com). And, for hassle-free serving, Rösle’s 7-oz stainless-steel ladle has a pouring rim that eliminates drips ($34; surlatable.com).
Whether you’re hosting a formal dinner or a last-minute get-together, you’ll be serving pretty with Christiane Perrochon’s stoneware bowls ($365; takashimaya-ny.com, 212-350-0100).
Ideal for sangria or punch, this 3-gallon glass urn has a metal spigot that encourages guests to help themselves ($79; potterybarn.com). They’ll also like these oversized, 16-oz glass tumblers ($1.95; crateandbarrel.com).
Le Creuset’s cheery 12-quart enamel-on-steel stockpot is tall and rather skinny, which means the liquid inside doesn’t evaporate as quickly as it would in a shorter, wider vessel. This bright pot is also stylish enough to bring right to the table for serving ($99.99; chefscatalog.com).
Recycled, weathered pine lends a vintage look to Vagabond’s Garden Bistro Table; the folding metal base makes it easily transportable. Since it’s both sturdy and lightweight, it encourages alfresco dining anytime, anywhere ($160; mothology.com, 404-351-6484).
William Yeoward, London’s crystal guru, dubbed his elegant glass water bottle “Country.” It’s handmade, like his pricier crystal pieces, but its simplicity makes it just right for outdoor dining ($110; williamyeowardcrystal.com, 212-532-2358).
