Affordable entertaining products designed by Vancouver-based 18 Karat

18 Karat Home decor and accessories

My friend Mel used to tell me that I should have a look at 18 Karat Home Store online. Even her husband knows her passion for the brand. Mel loves designer jewelry, bags and beautiful home décor items. I trust her taste.

We talked about 18 Karat fabulous designs while we were out so I kept forgetting to have a look. Wow, I was missing something great for people that like to entertain. They design, import and distribute unique products that are affordable, in vogue, organic and fresh looking.

Home decor accessories, vases and planters

18 Karat is the place to find the perfect accessories to finish up your home décor. You find conversation pieces with an organic sense like these Grande Vine Ball Vases at $225 CAD each.

To create a great entrance which is a must if you like to entertain at home, 18 Karat carries a huge selection of large scale vases and planters. They have stuff you cannot find anywhere else. Two floral industry veterans started up 18 Karat sixteen years ago by designing and importing floral containers for large volume users.

The 51 inch high Black Shiny Elato Planter is also one of many models. The Elato Planters can sustain the Canadian winter. There are made of frost resistant ceramic with a shiny black glaze and has drain hole. They cost $480 CAD.

Tableware collection

On the tabletop front, you can find unique design at 18 Karat Home. They have dinnerware and serving ware in solid white, black, pink, olive and citron.

For casual dinner and family-style entertaining, the Quadra dinnerware will make an impression on your guests. Its design is a little bit quirky. I like the fact that this semi-matte glazed ceramic is misshapen. With the Quadra Cream and Sugar set at $10.00 CAD and the salad plate at $9.00, the biggest question is where I store this new set?

The Epicurean Egg Tray makes a cute hostess gift for just $16.50 CAD. I like above all the Epicurean 5-petal Flower Plate. What a great shape to serve your nuts, small bites and vegetable platters. At $42 CAD, it is not even a luxury.

I can go on and on with their stuff. I grasped Mel enthusiast now.

  2. Oh I came across 18 Karat last month while reading an article on them in House & Home Mag and instantly fell in love with their products :)

    If I had a chance, I would love to check out their store. But for now I have to settle on online shopping.
