Trendspotting: Silverware isn't just for eating anymore
In what appears to be more than a penchant for recycling, I've been spotting silverware everywhere. Custom pendant lamps are fabricated with flatware in the all-night diner Kitchen 24 in Hollywood, upper left, and in an ice cream shop in Salzburg, Austria, lower right, where I was vacationing.
Accessories include a steel flatware wall clock from Seventh Avenue for $34.95, lower left, and a recycled flatware clock for $50 on mixtgoods.com. For a helping of drama in dining rooms and kitchens: enamelware decals by Custom Silhouettes, upper right, available for $32 to $40 on Etsy, plus a silverware design from Vinyl Wall Art too. (See more clever examples after the jump.)
