Flash Post: Make A Dish



What It Is: A collection of whimsical bowls (and other serveware) by design duo out of Finland, produced under the name ‘Taika’ (that’s Finnish for ‘Magic’). The super-embellished illustrations of owls and peacocks can be mix-and-matched for an endless array of table dressing for a bold yet classic, kitschy look.

Who It’s For: Your book club hostess, as a folksy addition to her mix-and-match collection of serveware. Your getting-hitched sister, because normal plates and bowls would never suit her wild style. Your wife, as a special piece she’ll appreciate but never buy for herself.

What It Costs: Prices are in the $17 – $95 range per piece.

Where It’s At: I spotted the (slightly discounted!) collection on the website RoyalDesign.com
