Throughout these truly strange times – when most of us find ourselves confined between the four walls of our homes (and the almost-too limitless walls of our internet connections) – the simple act of putting on the kettle and pouring a cuppa has become a (thrice-)daily ritual that calms and soothes our shaken nervous system like no other.
Read on to discover some of our favourite mugs currently in stock at MM, and what delicious, restorative beverage we are pairing with them. Pinky’s up!
Three words: Simple. Understated. Earthy. Gidon's latest ceramics collection draws inspiration from the power and presence of organic, imperfect forms. As an ode to the brand’s sculptural sensitivity, our serving suggestion for this mug is our beloved Golden Latte full of warming spices like turmeric, cinnamon, and ginger to boost our immune function – which feels well and truly be-frazzled.
We are long-time fans of Abs Objects’ ability to infuse their love of archaeology, art, design history, and traditional craftsmanship into simple and useful wares that enhance the beauty of everyday life. TheScissor Mug is no exception. As an ode to the brand’s native Tel Aviv, our serving suggestion for this special mug is the traditional Israeliblack and nana mint tea to soothe our digestive tracts.
An elevated classic, the creamy hue and arched shape of the ceramic beauty evoke the comforting motif of our most-tapped emoji—☕☕☕☕! Naturally, our serving suggestion for this stoic vessel is a good cup of joe, preferablyfair trade and piping hot.
Have your butter and drink from it, too! After two whole seasons of watching some of our favourite fashion houses like Bottega Veneta, Marc Jacobs, and Miu Miu push flotillas of butter down the runway, we are excited to see it begin to drip into our homewares, too. (The hue is even being pegged as one ofthe leading colour trends of 2022 if you’re into that kind of thing!)
To keep things in the mellow yellow space (which honestly feels like a warm hug) our serving suggestion for this heavenly vessel is cleansing hot lemon water with a swirl of honey.
Just like butter, lavender has been having a glittery moment in the spotlight. In fact, according to Coloro and WGSN, the hue’s modern counterpart ‘Digital Lavender’ is set to be the2023 Colour of the Year.
To keep in line with the trend theme, our serving suggestion with this fancyABS Objectsmug would have to beCeremonial-grade matcha (accompanied with a generous serve of mindfully honoring its cultural roots, of course.)
Of all the mugs in all the lands, this ABS Object’s glazed pink stoneware beauty has never once failed to raise our mood. The unique handle! The blushing hue! The tubular shape! It’s simply ‘feel-good’ from head to toe. Thus, our serving suggestion here is the happiest, most profoundly mood-boosting herbal tea: Rooibos (red bush tea). Cin cin!
