Product: Nissen Cutting Block

I just love when a product is well designed and elegant enough to go from the kitchen to the dining table. Such is the case with this fantastically chunky chopping block, designed by Bodum. I can see it on a stylish, self-serve bar during a cocktail party where guests can slice themselves a wedge of lemon or lime to finish off their adult beverage or as a pedestal for a trio of rich cheeses.

The cutting block is constructed of Danish beech wood and teak and is made by Bodum. I picked mine up at the Conran Shop in London, but in the States, they are available many boutiques that specialize in modern kitchenware and home accessories, such as OK in Los Angeles.
