Jewel tone bowls for your entertaining needs

I'm always on a constant lookout for bowls and plates for my tableware needs.  So when I laid my eyes on these bowls, I thought they would be perfect for ice cream or gazpacho.  I know it's not even spring yet but hey, it's never too early to prepare for a festive dinner party!  Vitreluxe crystal bowls come in two sizes: 4" diameter at $78 each or 7" diameter at $285.  They are available in 6 different jewel tones: Amber, Aqua, Berry, Sea Green, Topaz, Violet.

Walk all over Damien Hirst

These boots are made for walking and they are made for walking all over Damien Hirst's Beautiful saucy spit roast it'll all end in tears rug!!  Never mind about the art's long title....  But this limited editioned (7) rug will cost you a hefty $45,000 if you want to walk all over it.  While this is not a cheap rug by any means, but when was the last time one can purchase a Damien Hirst art work that is 6'6" wide and cost less than a million dollars?

Eat off a Calder!

Nope, you cannot eat off a Calder mobile or stabile.  That's why Calder foundation teamed up with Bernardaud to come up with limited edition porcelain plates to celebrate Calder.  These 3000 editioned plates comes in a pack of six and are priced at $550 per pack which is about $92 a plate.  I'm not sure if these will ever go up in value as Calder himself did not personally collaborate with Bernardaud.... But these plates do look beautiful and I think they look much better as wall decorations or as dinner service chargers than something you would eat off.  The designs on the plates will clash with any food you put on them so I don't recommend using them as dinner plates.
