In 1999, famed architect Michael Graves partnered with Target to make high design more accessible to the masses. He created bubbly toasters and tea kettles with spinning whistles. Customers snatched up these playful takes on daily objects, and he moved on to design over a thousand pieces for Target. And the term "cutensil" was formed.
One reason for this success was that he imbued a bit of joy into everyday life. An unexpected dash of humor takes us out of ourselves. Playful, fluid lines loosen up the rigidity of right angles. Ladles and Linens knows how to put the "fun" in functionality. See below for a curated list of our own "cutensils" and add a little whimsy to your home!
The sloth tea infuser is already sold out, but Ladles & Linens carries a Narwhal spiked tea, a Purr-Tea Cat, a Tea Lion and Koala-tea infuser, pictured above. Make your cup of tea an even more joyful ritual, and grab one while it lasts!
These candy-colored ice cream spoons might just make your indulgence taste a little sweeter. How can these colors not cheer you up?
Why use a regular measuring cup, when you can use a monkey measuring cup? Or rainbow-colored baking cups and basting brushes? If you have kids, it will surely get them in the mood to help, and hopefully become creative cooks themselves!
I'm just going to leave this right here.
