i wish it was bigger...

now before you jump to conclusions, maison21 is referring to a home accessory- namely this fruit bowl from harry allen's reality series (via design public):

maison21 recently needed somethin' large and pretty and gloriously GOLD to bring life to a ginormous expanse of empty table top, and immediately thought of the above mixed fruit bowl from harry allen (we've all seen his creepy, yet still somehow endearingly cute piggy bank), but the scale of the mixed fruit bowl is just too small (10.5" at widest). second choice of his banana bowl from the same "reality" series, was better, but still a little too skimpy for m21's large gilt accessory needs, at 13" at widest point. (again, via design public):

happily, maison21 stumbled upon this fabulous gilded giant clam shell at the plantation home accessories website, and at 21" long, it's just right...


keeping to the bigger is better theme of this post, maison21 recommends that you spend a little time on the plantation home accessories site, as their vast selection is far larger than one would think, judging by the size of their retail locations (at least the one maison21 frequents on la brea, here in l.a.).

is anyone else feeling the "gold gots it goin' on" vibe? maison21 just can't get enough of all that glitters...

I've seen these before briefly on a home show on TV. They're gorgeous!! I love the metallic look. I only saw the one with the cluster of bananas and didn't realize they came in the shape of other exotic fruits. Thanks for sharing!
