I'm all about simple design in the kitchen and on the table. Somehow when you pare down an object to the most basic elements, it just looks more elegant. And that's exactly why I love this simple solid brass trivet by fruit super design.
I can see this trivet being a permanent fixture on the dining table — always ready to protect the wood finish from a hot casserole dish, cast iron skillet, or pot of tea. But if you don't want to set it out, it is also easy to stash away inside a cabinet. Simply add a hook to the back of a cabinet door and hang it there.
If you're in need of a housewarming gift or present for a consummate entertainer, this simple design is a great choice. It makes for a generous (but not outrageously priced) gift, and goes with almost any style of decor.
