Rethink your table

Bringing nature to your table via wooden plates and cutlery may not be the most practical, perhaps. But very trendy. Very right now.

I have been stocking up on wooden bowls and cutlery with wooden handles from the 1960s and on, for a while now. No one seems to want them (not very dish washer proof, and all that), and cost almost nothing at second-hand store. Until now, I guess....

Want some new ones? Check out british designer Gary Allson's wooden plates, bowls and cutlery below:
