aa2Designer Julia Knight creates some wonderful products, all on display on her lovely website. Her designs are elegant throwbacks to a time when everyday items were made to look good and last forever.

About Julia Knight: “The collections I create speak to me intimately. Each one has a story to tell — whether born from a study in nature, a random cabbie chat on a Manhattan street, or a dialogue with artisans in Italy and India. Each piece is a work of art, handmade of sand cast aluminum with our signature blend of enamel infused with crushed Mother-of-Pearl. Once these pieces manifest in full brilliance, they begin to “talk” to one another, too, through the beautiful layering of colors, textures and themes.”

I love Ms. Knight’s Barware collection, including great items like this cocktail shaker (right): “Shake it up! Celebrate in Style with Julia Knight’s Barware Collection. Knight’s Classic Collection of bar accessories is a signature statement of elegance and style. Uniquely designed, every piece is pretty and practical with timeless clean-line sophistication. The luster of mother-of-pearl mosaics decorate these silvery indulgences making them a conversation piece for any party. A gorgeous barware display in your home says, ‘I love to entertain, I have refined taste’ and most importantly… ‘Can I make you a drink?’”
