Keeping hydrated is a good idea whatever the time of year. It tends to come into even more focus in the warmer months though, and naturally it's a time when many want to enjoy a glass of water in the most comfortable and relaxed way.
Having access to a great looking and beautifully styled carafe is an excellent method of ensuring enjoyment of drinking enough water. Whether placed on the dining table, or the bedside cabinet, a finely made carafe is a lovely way of offering essential water and delicate drinks.
Some of the world's top designers working with glass have come up with some fantastic styles that we here at Homecolours really appreciate. Take a look at the following for a little carafe inspiration.
The above (and lead image) Ripple Small Carafe Set, Smoked Grey from Ferm Living provides everything you need for a beautifully styled drink of water. Offering a sophisticated and modern look, the subtle smoke grey colour tones of the mouth-blown glass bring an artful take to the collection. The individual glass also acts as a lid for the carafe when not in use. Great for a home working space, a modern office or a bedside table, the set is sure to be a success wherever it is used.
The Ferm Living Ripple Carafe, Smoked Grey can also be found as an individual item. Bringing in a unique look, the carafe is easy to wash and look after. Great for mixing and matching with other glassware items, the carafe is another step towards perfectly styled hydration.
Scandinavian design house Georg Jensen is well known for its mastery of glassware. The Alfredo Glass Carafe showcases this fine ability in detail, with the striking shape and form of the container offering a great way to keep guests glasses full at dinnertime. Arriving with a solid, rustic kind of oak wood stopper, the complete product is certainly individual and artful.
LSA is another glassware expert and the Canopy Carafe 1.3 L is another design worthy of its award winning name. Perfect for long summer drinks of water, juice or cocktails, the individually handmade items are as ecologically responsible as they are elegant, with each piece made from recycled glass. Made in conjunction with the Eden Project, the carafe from the Canopy series is another brilliant way of getting enough water in wonderful style.
