Ornate glass design
Aren’t these glasses gorgeous!
They were designed by Dutch designer, Tord Boontje, and are part of his Table Stories collection.
The clear glasses are blown by mouth and are ornately decorated with a white horse design. They’re so lovely, they almost too good to actually use!
If you do want to drink from them, they’re designed to be whisky glasses, but look like they’d work well as water tumblers too.
Jasmine Way have the horse whisky glasses in stock, with a set of two priced at £30.
Check out some of Tord Boontje’s other creations that we’ve previously featured.

Herb pot stand
Have you got a few odd pots of herbs lingering on your kitchen windowsill? Here’s a neat solution to keep them stylishly organised.
The white flowerpot design herb stand is designed by Jakob Heiberg for Normann Copenhagen and features a modular design. At its basic, there’s place to store one or two pots of herbs – but if you need room for more, you can use the built in saucers as extra space.
A slimline compartment at the back of the stand provides space for the accompanying scissors, so you’ll always have them ready when you want to cut a few herbs for cooking.
The Normann Copenhagen white flowerpot herb stand is available from Made in Design for £28.20.

It comes apart really well for cleaning. As well as looking great on your windowsill, it looks pretty cool viewed from above, too!

Lion sugar bowl and unicorn creamer
For quirky products that you’ll love using, you can’t beat designs by Takae Mizutani.
As a designer, Takae has a great way of looking at the world through the eyes of a child and this can certainly be seen in her unique designs.
In the case of this sugar bowl and creamer set, the sugar bowl is designed in the shape of a lion and the creamer is in the form of a unicorn. Both animal motifs feature on the British coat of arms, so it’s only right that they’re on products celebrating the great British tea drinking habit!
The set of two Tea Rules the World pieces are made in Cornwall from earthenware clay, cost £44 and come in a gift box, so would make a great present. The only choice you have to make is whether to opt for white or natural finish.
