Welcome to a tiny bit of my home office, where you can see the tray I picked up in San Francisco’s Japan Town. Other people use trays as organizing tools in their kitchens — and when I featured a gorgeous tray in a prior post, two people chimed in with other ways trays can be used.
If you’d like to use trays yourself, there are lots to choose from. Almedahls, based in Sweden, has a good-sized collection — including this one featuring herring. Monapart Living, one of the sites that sells them, has a nice explanation of how they are made. Another site that carries these is Huset. [via Apartment Therapy]
Anyone who read the Moomin books as a child (or as an adult!) might enjoy this Moomin tray, or one of the others from the same company. You can also find many of the Moomin trays at Huset.
Isak has some fun trays, too. [via Retro To Go]
Many of Moln’s trays feature much simpler patterns, such as this leaf, and your basic dots. They come in various sizes and colors. [via From Europe]
It was a real struggle to pick just one items from Åry Trays to show you; the trays feature the work of many artists, and so many of them are delightful. This one features the art of Michael Angrove, but also take a look at those with art from Anna Viktorsson, Asta Barrington and Lush Designs. They’re made from Scandinavian beech wood.
Want something very simple? Gleaming Renditions has some solid-color trays that might work for you.
This is the Fionia tray from Trip Trap; it comes in two sizes, and you can choose between teak and oak. You can get one in teak at Design Within Reach.
Here's something very different: the duck canvas utility tray from Best Made Company. This reminds me a bit of the vide poches I wrote about long ago.
Finally, if you have a lot of money to spend and like the style, you could get a tray from Annie Modica.
