Hello Kitty!

The Autum/Winter catalogue dropped onto our doormat earlier this week.  I know we haven’t had summer yet, but orders have to be placed so we’re often thinking about Christmas in July & August. As it is still officially July we don’t want to talk too much about the ‘C’ word but we do want to share these guys with you…

koziol-cats

New for 2015 is this cat inspired range. We love them and think that they’ll be very popular, sitting alongside customer favourites like Mimmi and Miaou we’ll be in kitty heaven!

More news to follow until then have a purr-fect weekend!

Aloha Giovanni

Lets talk eggs! Who doesn’t love a perfectly scrambled egg on toast, a cooked to perfection poached egg perched on asparagus or the humble but you just can’t beat,  dippy egg and toast soldiers. In an effort to achive this perfection Koziol have created a few tools to help us out!

Aloha is an egg cooker that you can lower into the pan, pop in your egg and wait 3 minutes (or however long it takes to make your preffered boiled egg) then simply lift out those eggs without fear of burning hands or dropping eggs.

And there’s a fun version for the kids, meet Buggy! Buggy, like Aloha can also be used in the pan to cook the eggs. There’s a handle with a hooked end that fits over the edge of the pan, then once your egg is cooked Buggy can be transported to the table and used as an egg cup. Practical and fun!

Finally there’s Giovanni. A stand alone egg slicer that can also be used to slice Mozzarella cheese. Pop your peeled boiled egg or ball of Mozzarella cheese into Giovann’s oversized open smiling mouth and then close to reveal a prefectly sliced egg or mozzarella for your salad or sandwiches.

So there you have it! Tools to acheive egg perfection time and time again.

The Snow Queen meets Little Red Riding Hood & The Mad Hatter!

With the last of bank holidays over with before Christmas, it’s time to start thinking Autumn/Winter stock. Difficult I know to think of Christmas festivities and snow when the sun is shining, but the way we look at it is, at least the sun is shining!
This year the colour palette for Koziol’s Autumn/Winter is full of rich, strong colours that break down into four trends. First up is Star Money, a collection that can only be described as stellar, white and black mix with taupe and luxurious copper, like the twinkling stars in the night sky.

Next is Little Red Riding Hood, so this one speaks for itself… bold and rich red mix with innocent white and stark black.

Number three is The Snow Queen. Again white features quite heavily but this time white is mixed with turquoise and blue, reminiscent of ice.

Finally is Alice in Wonderland, this is a collection of bright, fiery colours that will be perfectly at home at the Mad Hatters Tea Party! Red and orange rub shoulders with fuschia pink and taupe.

To Have & To Hold

Wedding season is upon us – we’ve already been to one wedding this year! From June it really hots up, in more ways than one! It’s not uncommon for us to have customers buying a wedding present the day before the wedding, we’ve even had people in on their way to the wedding, now that really is leaving it to the last minute! Thankfully we are used to this and have a list of top 5 wedding presents, so here they are…

In at number 1 is the Leaf Salad Bowl and integrated servers. A beautiful and stylish salad bowl that was inspired when designer Cairn Young was on holiday in Tuscany; after his delicious dinner, he sat back satisfied and rested his linked hands upon his full tummy sparking the idea of the linked servers that fit in the base of the Leaf bowl.

Number 4 is Eve bowl. The gorgeous curves and unusual design mean this bowl can be used as a decorative item or for storing fruit. Available in various colours, Eve is presented in a smart gift box.

Finally last but by no means least is Meeting Point kitchen utensils and stand. A set of 5 utensils that hang on a central stand, when hung these cheeky chaps appear to be sticking out their tongues.

The Shadow of Salad

New for spring summer 2014 is this beautiful Shadow salad bowl and servers. Available in two colours, a white bowl with lime green servers or an anthracite bowl with black salad servers, this stylish set is made from 100% recyclable BPA and melamine free plastic and both the bowl and servers are dishwasher safe. The beautiful and unusual design of the bowl allows the servers to slot into the cut-out pattern on the edge of the bowl and it’s all presented in a smart gift box, making it an ideal present.

The distinctive cut-out pattern on the edge of the bowl is carried through to the servers and the whole set has an abstract, natural nature feel to it. Designed by Rodolfo Argella, Shadow is a great addition to the Koziol catalogue, we just can’t decide which colour we like best!
