On the boil
Who says kettles need to be sleek and simple in design? Of course, clean, polished appliances have their place, but bright, body, quirky ones can bring lots of joy and character to an otherwise modest kitchen space. And bright, bold and quirky is precisely what the Byzance kettle from Pylones is. This fun item boils over with personality and is sure to be a central talking point at any tea party. We’re hazarding a guess that it even makes your regular cuppa taste a little better. The kettle is made from metal and plastic and can hold one litre of water. It’s available in black with a fish-inspired Scale design, in turquoise with a whimsical Orchid motif or in yellow with a flashy Dahlia treatment. These playful statement appliances are available from Pylones, an international gift shop that’s synonymous with fun, outlandish homeware, fashion accessories and office stationary. The local store is based at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town and sells this gem for R1999.95. Visit pylons.com to see other eccentric products stocked by this brand.
