We love a good celeb kitchenware collab, and Molly Baz’s just-released collection with Crate and Barrel is one of the best we’ve seen in a while. Featuring bright pops of colour and seriously chic design, the collection includes nearly 60 new pieces ranging from $15 to $140, all available exclusively at Crate and Barrel online and in store across Canada. Co-designed with Crate and Barrel, Molly and her husband, spatial and furniture designer, Ben Willett, created a collection that’s inspired by 20th century European influences and their modern California lifestyle. From the most stylish trivet we’ve ever seen to a functional-meets-contemporary condiment caddy, read on for our top picks from the collaboration.
Wooden Salt and Pepper Mills by Molly Baz
These salt and pepper grinders are more than just functional: their colour-blocked design makes for a seriously impactful accessory on your table or countertop. Made of ash wood, the cleverly designed stacked wooden blocks fit snugly together when placed side by side.
Egg Yolk Yellow Apron by Molly Baz
We just love this bright and playful one-size-fits-all apron. Featuring a crisscross back, it easily slips overhead, and the large pocket can hold larger kitchen utensils while the smaller breast pocket can fit your phone, a pencil, recipe notes, or any of the other small necessities that seem to get lost in a busy kitchen.
3-Tier Serving Tray by Molly Baz
Molly designed this tray with her favourite iconic restaurant seafood towers in mind, and while it certainly can fit a generous layer of ice topped with caviar and oysters, it can just as easily serve as a multipurpose tower for everything from fruit to desserts. Plus, the top tier and accompanying center post are removable, so you can customize it to your use.
Blue Silicone Trivet by Molly Baz
This might just be the most stylish trivet we’ve ever seen. The tubular trivet features a metal core coated with heat-resistant silicone, and can hold everything from hot pots and pans to cookie sheets. It’s so pretty though, we’d keep it on our tabletop even when it’s not in use!
Wooden Salad Servers by Molly Baz
These are not your average salad servers! Featuring oversized saucer-shaped heads, these solid scoopers can easily serve a generous amount of salad (our favourite portion size) and the cleverly designed U-shaped handles give good grip and leverage.
Butter Yellow Stoneware Dinner Bowl by Molly Baz
If we had to pick a different dish in our cupboard, it would absolutely be a blate: the plate-meets-bowl hybrid that you can eat just about anything off of. This pretty pastel butter yellow blate (or “dinner bowl”, as Molly calls it), is the multi-purpose dish everyone deserves to have in their kitchen.
The Tini Glass in Paprika Red by Molly Baz
This pretty coupe gives us all the vintage vibes with its duotone glass and retro shape. We love the idea of serving up a light and fizzy cocktail to guests in it alongside some sophisticated nibbles.
Rotating Condiment Caddy by Molly Baz
The term “condiment rack” typically is not associated with anything remotely chic or stylish, but this delightful iteration from Molly manages to do just that. Plus, the base rotates so you can easily grab the hot honey, malt vinegar, or whatever else you’re craving.
Bamboo Melamine Pinch Bowls, Set of 4 by Molly Baz
If you don’t already have a collection of pinch bowls, this colourful little set is a great place to start. Perfectly sized to hold everything from cracked eggs to minced herbs, they’ll quickly become your kitchen MVP.
The Napkin Set by Molly Baz
These organic cotton napkins will provide a subtle yet sophisticated pop of colour to your tablescape. Plus, we love that the different colours mean guests won’t get their napkins mixed up!
