No one seems willing to speculate about the origin of the term “lazy Susan.” Why not “lazy Barbara?” We are pretty sure that the rotating server was cobbled together by a busy Mom who needed to circulate foods and condiments from one side of a large table to the other to prevent endless passing of plates. Today’s Lazy Susan options are no less functional, but are greatly enhanced in the beauty department. Our collection includes marble, metal, boulder, wine cask and indoor/outdoor twirlers as well as raised Lazy Susans that resemble a little table on the table.
Trivets have a more singular purpose…that being to take the heat. Placed between a serving dish and your prized mahogany sideboard or granite countertops, this work horse hot plate protects finishes and provides a soupcon of style. Our stationary yet stellar selection includes trivets of inlaid and whole stone, marble, iron and myrtle wood. Trivets are also excellent stand-ins as footed servers and chopping blocks.
