I'm obsessed with kitchen-related stuff today for some reason. It must be all the time I spent at home over the weekend. Anyhow, the store with kitchenware that makes me smile everytime I see it is Pylones. This store was founded in France in the 80s and the first US store is a few blocks away from me on the Upper East Side. I love their stuff. It might get a little ridiculous if you fill your home with Pylones stuff, but I think 2 or 3 would make great conversation starters at a party. At the very least, it makes dreary tasks like sweeping up crumbs a little bit more fun, don't you think?
