Our Favorite Things: Lamina Bowl by L’Objet

Greetings and salutations, everyone! I know it’s been a while since we last spoke. Please forgive us. However, I assure you our absence has been in the service of you, our loyal readers, whom we love so much! In the past few weeks, we have been off looking for more functional, yet fabulous new products to share with you, we took a field trip to a vacation home in rural Maryland designed by our intrepid leader (and took lots of pictures, naturally), and, most importantly, we’ve been expanding the flagship site to improve your shopping experience. So there’s all that, plus, this past week, Lindsay and I went to our 10 year high school reunion, which was a fun, hilarious hot mess in the best way possible. I mean I can’t speak for Lindsay, but I’ve never felt so old in my life. Strangely enough though, talking to old friends you haven’t seen in years about receding hairlines and expanding guts and marriages and kids and all that was oddly comforting and fun. Of course, the bourbon helped too, so there you go… 🙂 Anyway, look for all those stories and more in the coming days and weeks. And, hopefully, we’ve got a number of former classmates among our readership now, so to you all we say welcome and GO PANTHERS!

Now back to the matter at hand. Unfortunately, we’ve got a dreary, humid, rainy, Amazonian Monday afternoon on our hands here in DC, and I get the feeling that everyone’s feeling a little sluggish. So how about we ease back into our routine with something fun and familiar? It’s been a while since we showcased one of our favorite things, so here is a beautiful piece that goes flying off the shelves every time we get a new shipment!

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present THE LAMINA BOWL BY L’OBJET! Catch the fever!

Seriously, you guys? When I say we can barely keep these on the shelves, I mean it. We’ve had to reorder them twice in the last month alone! And I think the reason everyone responds so strongly to this particular bowl is… well, look at it! IT’S STUNNING! And a shining example of beautiful design and modern luxury. Personally, one of the reason I love it is that it’s a modern twist on a very popular design. Rather than just using the acanthus leaves as an extraneous ornament, they’ve been dipped in 14k gold and beautifully twisted to form a stand upon which a perfectly proportioned silver-plated bowl stands. It’s sophisticated. It’s elegant. It’s pure luxury. And what’s more: I don’t know about you, but I’d expect something like this to cost and arm and a leg and a first born, but it’s spectacularly reasonable. Especially, if you buy it from Ella & Boss. (Hint. Hint. ;)) Plus, it comes in various sizes from a small 6″ bowl, perfect for a console or coffee table, to the large 12″ version, great for serving or centerpieces. But it’s a showstopper in any size! Head on over and grab yours today!

And with that, I shall bid you a fond adieu! Thanks for reading! It’s so nice to be back. Oh, and don’t forget Mother’s Day is this weekend! If you’re still in the market for a last-minute gift, be sure to check out our post about Mother’s Day gifts from the Ella & Boss collection. We’ve got a bunch of things she’s sure to love, and we’ll get it there on time for you!

Until next time!
