From Painted Tapas Boards to Literal Fruit Bowls

By: Katherine Pendrill - Nov 26, 2016
Whether it is colorfully painted tapas boards or fruit bowls cast from different melon rinds, the November 2016 kitchen trends reveal that consumers are increasingly concerned about the presentation of their food. With the rise of social media and the popularity of amateur food photography, it only makes sense that consumers would begin searching for picture-perfect tableware.

For many consumers, the dishes used to serve and display foods have taken on new importance. As a result, there is a growing demand for pieces that look decorative, but can still be used every day. Such products can range from geometric fruit bowls to painted tapas boards and even scientific condiment vessels.

Beyond simply looking good, consumers also want their kitchen accessories to be highly functional. For instance, the Caffeine Mugs by Vivid Biology not only serve as a stylish way to serve coffee, but they also change color based on the caffeine level of the roast. Another product highlighted by the November 2016 kitchen trends is the GIR Bottle Stoppers, which feature stylish geometric designs that also help to keep wine fresh.
