i really love bodum.
they offer really well-made kitchen and table-top items that are not only nice to look at, but they are totally affordable and quite perfect for the wear and tear that can come from everyday use. their coffee presses really can't be beat and their corona glasses have a wonderful weight and are really a joy to drink from - we have tons of them in different sizes at our house. now that the boy is working over near their meatpacking district store in manhattan, i got a chance to stop by again (after not having dropped by in quite a while) and they have some nice new additions. my favorite is the canteen, a double wall carafe with a cork stopper. its so sleek and simple and chic (much prettier in person) and its definitely on my wish list.
