For all of us with limited kitchen storage space, items that stack or nest nicely can be a big help. Mixing bowl sets and plastic food storage are places where such options abound.
But what about coffee cups or mugs? Cost Plus World Market has options in solid colors and these stripes.
Diversified Ceramics has a range of stackable cups: for espresso, cappuccino, latte, etc. (Available here.)
And here's something very different: totem cups.
Other places to get stacking mugs include Crate and Barrel and - going further afield - Ceramic Tableware House Sendirian Berhad in Malaysia.
If you want stackable glassware, you could consider the Picardie glasses from Duralex - available from Cost Plus World Market, Williams Sonoma, Design Within Reach, History Company and more. [via Francophilia] Update on August 26, 2013: Design Within Reach no longer carries these glasses.
What about stacking wine glasses, with stems? Here are some that are acrylic. [via Daily Olive]
And here are some that are glass.
Moving on to another part of the kitchen, I was taken with the Stellar Eazi Store Pan Set, which Lakeland calls the "Russian dolls of the cooking world."
And of course, it's not just kitchen items that can stack or nest - as the folks at Heckler Design so beautifully illustrate, with OneLessOffice.
