The 12 Prettiest Things We Saw at the Home + Housewares Show

International Home + Housewares Show 2013

All week long we've been sharing our discoveries from this year's Home + Housewares show. We showed you this awesome new Greek Yogurt maker and Bodum's game-changing stand mixers. We revealed KitchenAid's new colors and Dansk's adorable teacups. But now it's time to round up a few of our absolute favorites, the prettiest and most eye-catching items in the bunch:

1. Mini copper pots from Mauviel (shown above the jump): Mauviel is the top of the line for copper cookware, but we were particularly smitten with these mini pots.

5. Dansk in Stainless Steel: We're total suckers for the vintage styling of Dansk Kobenstyle, especially now that it's in stainless steel! The whole line was super shiny, and totally sleek.

11. 1-Quart Urban Pitcher from Emile Henry: This pitcher has such a beautiful shape and a gracefully curved handle. Plus, we love the earthy tones it comes in: Slate, Nougat, Sand, and Juniper.

12. José Andrés and Philippe Starck for Castey Vacuum Cast Aluminum Cookware: Spanish company Castey is one of the oldest housewares company still operating. Their new vacuum-cast aluminium cookware line is modern and chic. No US distributor yet, but hopefully soon!
