3 Great Accessories For Christmas Drinks
With Warehouse Home Issue Three receiving such a fantastic response, and with Christmas fast approaching, our thoughts have been turning to fizz and festivities!
Timeless and traditional, cool and contemporary, brass and gold accessories add a touch of refinement to any desk. But let’s focus for a moment on the drinks cabinet.
Any self-respecting host knows that you need a smart tray to carry your cocktails on. And you won’t find any better than this one (below). Kayment has been proudly handmaking anodised aluminium ware in Bermondsey since 1947 – in fact, their factory is only a short distance from Warehouse Home HQ. Kaymet’s distinctive trays, trolleys and hotplates can be found around the world, with many of the original models still in production, alongside modern makeovers and new designs. We love this elegant matt gold number.

Meanwhile, those bottles won’t open themselves. These trendy yet timeless tools will help.
Fort Standard is a contemporary American design studio founded in 2011 by industrial designers Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings. This beautiful bottle opener has a functional form and a raw unfinished feel. It’s cast in brass directly from hand carved waxes and shows evidence of its hand made origin with visible filing marks.

Designed in London by Tom Dixon and sand cast out of solid brass, this corkscrew will add a sense of occasion to the opening of any bottle. The curved shape makes the corkscrew ‘comfortable and easy to hold’… a convenient excuse to reach for another fine wine…
