I think the overall impression of a house or a room or any other place is in the details. They give personality to the place and make it unique and special, as nobody admires a dull space, with nothing to draw your attention. That is why we decorate our homes and make them comfortable, but also nice to look at. And one of the things I like very much is the fruit bowl. It’s both a tableware, but you can also use it for decorative purposes. It even appears in the paintings of many famous painters. And it completes the image of a room very well.
I have just found the Lotus fruit bowl from Alessi and I simply fell in love with it. The designer – Stefano Giovannoni – was inspired by the very old tradition in china of the Asians and also by the cult for the lotus flower and this is how this bowl was designed. It is just as delicate as the lotus flower and you would never guess its use – a fruit bowl unless you know it. The graceful petals make the bowl look very decorative and nice-looking, combining the old tradition of china making with the modern view of a young designer and the result is spectacular. Just put this bowl on a dinner table and you will see the result on your guests’ face. Or place it in the middle of your coffee table, with or without fruit in it. You can purchase it for about $33, which is a very nice price for such a beauty.
