You have approximately one week to scoop up great deals on iittala — our 20% off sale ends on August 5th, 2014.
In case you are unfamiliar with iittala, it’s a brand that offers many iconic pieces for design lovers, from hand-blown glass birds designed by Oiva Toikka to classic vases by Alvar Aalto.
iittala Toikka Barn Owl
By the way, in case you were wondering about the man who behind the birds, this is Oiva Toikka:
But there is so much more to iittala than just the coolest glass birds around. It’s my go-to for host/hostess and wedding gifts. When there’s a sale like this, I like to stock up. Don’t tell my friends, but my standing wedding gift for everyone I ever met in architecture school is an Aalto vase. I like to scoop up a few when I can save 20%.
Kaj Franck’s Kartio Carafe
Of course, don’t feel like you have to buy stuff for other people. When there’s a sale, it’s an even better justification to shop just for yourself. The simplicity of Kaj Franck’s Kartio Carafe will please you minimalists and fans of all things Finnish.
iittala Sarpaneva 2.9 Cast Iron Casserole
The iittala Sarpaneva 2.9 quart Cast Iron Casserole with the wooden handle will become your favorite piece of cookware, and you’ll leave it out on the stovetop 24/7 just to show it off. I gave one to my very picky impeccable Aunt Sally Wittenberg many years ago and it is always out on her stove. And Aunt Sally was never one to just leave things on the stove that weren’t in use.
Even if you’re just looking up to pick up a little something, there’s something special from iittala. My choice is the iittala Kastehlmi in light blue. The little beads make this such an elegant and charming piece. While it is practical glassware, I’m thinking it’s going on my nightstand to corral my watch and jewelry, or perhaps with one floating flower in it.
