The Smithsonian once published an article on how our brains find certain shapes more attractive than others. Apparently, we have an affinity for curves. Round and oval shapes attract us whereas the boxy ones are just there, existing. This study seems relevant in the context of my family’s holiday dinners, when the salad is passed slowly, from seat to seat, as each person struggles to stab another cherry tomato. To get one more spinach leaf in exchange for this bit of romaine that rode on a prong is imperative. Meanwhile, people are getting antsy. Your uncle slights your personhood in some funny way, and the little kids whom you forgot had been born announce that someone must be dieting. After all, it’s just a salad.
The perfect combination of beauty and utility, these Mid-century serving utensils solve all problems. Working together, the two utensils will allow you to snag that one leaf of arugula, round up a few scarce olives and cage those cherry tomatoes in a single attempt.
These beautiful Mid-century ones from the Krrb seller foundlovemade would be the perfect complement to your existing servingware. The wood is smooth and bright, and the handles are painted with a simple, modern black-and-white design.
