Fruitbowls: for rich and poor

Stainless steel fruit bowls to be exact.
I've been hankering for one for a while now but I'm not sure it would look right in my kitchen.

The NY Times featured this beauty from Ligne Roset. The Eplaff, in lacquered stainless steel, measures 23"in diameter and sells for a whopping $265.

For a whole lot less money, $29.99 to be exact, Ikea has Stockholm, a stainless steel bowl with a less gimmicky flower pattern. It's slightly smaller at 16.5 ", but that may fit better on the average person's sideboard. Not to mention their wallet.

I obviously have issues...whenever I see things like that my first thought is "my eye! my eye!" as though I will one day trip in the kitchen and impale myself with it. That said, I like the Ikea one better.

I LOVE the first one... I might have to buy some old silverware and a blowtorch (and some lead-free solder) and try making it!!! How fun is that!!!

that gives me an idea for a cool sculpture: silverware on a walnut or teak board. Retro modern.......
