Vitra trays

The last few days, my posts have morphed into a public wish list. It started innocently enough with my finding pictures of Howard Smith birds, and then I did a post about a collection of Vitra miniature chairs, which led me deeper down the rabbit hole of must-haves.

I might as well let out all the stops and post about all the things I've found the last few days that have gone on my To Buy list. Today it's all about trays in patterns by George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames and Alexander Girard.

I'm torn between the first two, but the other two are equally delightful.

  1. The George Nelson one is my fave Dana.
    And on the public wish list - at least your friends and family know what to get you for Christmas this year...

    1. I'm not being very subtle this year, am I? :)

  2. Very clever Dana, you make it very easy for "Mr. Ho Ho Ho" this year ;-)
    The trays are wonderful and I'm with Kylie for the first one!

    1. I have all my green dishes for sale, but if I got one of those trays, I'd start to use them again.

  3. Sea creatures for me - but then I've got a thing about seaweed going on at the moment!

    1. I don't like sand, so I'm not much of a beach person, but I have to say that aquatic life, both plant and animal, has always fascinated me, so I find this tray charming too.

  4. They're all great, but I'm partial to the George Nelson one too!

    1. So far, ol' George has the most nods. He'd be pleased, I bet.

  5. The Family and Sea Creatures are cool. Eames is best.

    1. There's something about The Family that I really love. If you take time to look closely at it, there's a very interesting story about what makes up a family.

    1. Another vote for Sea Things is recorded. Wouldn't that be great in a beach house?
