As the summer approaches and the promise of warmer weather comes ever closer, many of us will be looking for ways to stay cool in style.
Here at Homecolours we think that ice is the best answer to this.
Ice in our drinks, and eating ice cream with the best bowls and spoons offers an excellent way to keep cool. It’s also probably the most fun!
Here are some excellent products that have ice at the heart of their design.
The beautifully curved and constructed Alessi Koki Ice Cream Scoop (above) provides a wonderful opportunity to get the best scoop every time. The sleek design and curled shape offer a brilliant formation for placing a portion of ice cream or gelato into your bowl.
Designed by Valerio Sommella for Alessi, the scoop allows for maximum comfort and ease of use. Produced using stainless steel, the scoop is strong and long-lasting with a contemporary finish. The scoop is also ideal for sorbets and ice pieces.
The above Ferm Living Fein Ice Spoon, Brass is another excellent way to transfer ice to drinks and glasses. Featuring a hole allowing for draining in the main part, the matte brass finished stainless steel spoon is ideal for adding ice cubes to a mixer or cocktail.
Great for using with an ice bucket to complement drinks in perfect style.
Also from Ferm Living, and an excellent companion to the Ice Spoon, is the Ferm Living Alza Ice Bucket.
A dignified and cultured way to store and transport ice from freezer to the heart of a gathering, the bucket is made from White Indian Banswara Marble with a matte brass lid, and is durable and strong. Perfect for fixing guests with enough ice to keep perfectly cool.
Another excellent option for an ice bucket is offered with the Rosendahl Grand Cru Ice Bucket. Created from high quality stainless steel, the elegant and superbly finished ice bucket brings a wonderful way to serve everything you need for the perfect drink.
The lid features three different sections for different herbs and fruit, while the main body can hold a generous supply of ice cubes.
If it is the creation of ice cubes themselves that is what is needed, the Rig-Tig FREEZE-IT Ice Cube Tray with Lid is an excellent option.
Made from the versatile and supple material of blue silicone, the tray comes with plastic lid to ensure the perfect shape. Two sizes are available to create differently shaped cubes. Traditional cubes or narrower rectangular shapes could both be made with these flexible designs.
