Of course, you could just choose to store a half-dozen eggs in this handy porcelain “carton,” but why stop there? It’s equally suitable for corralling errant jewelry, keys, pocket change, and more.
Witty elevation of everyday objects, or wry commentary on our disposable culture? Either way Seletti, an Italian company specializing in contemporary home wares, creates one of the cheekiest—and refined—lines we know. Called the “Estetico Quotidiano” collection, it renders humble household objects such as buckets and soup pots, plastic water bottles and drinking cups, egg cartons and storage tins in fine porcelain and thin, elegant glass. And while their reproductions may look precious, they certainly don’t act the part. All Seletti pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe.
