i have a thing for trays, and not because i like things looking tidy. well now that i think about it, that's precisely the reason why…not that things are even remotely tidy around here. however, i also think trays are like a platform begging for you to display your decorative objects, even if this be keys and bills. here are some favorites.
rablab's crystal & 24k gold and sterling silver trays
this lacquer and mirrored tray
oly's mia tray
trays made using real sheets of handspun linen coated in hard resin
sienna tray at bungalow 5
19th Century Asian Wooden Trays at antony todd on 1stdibs
something to remind me of chicago
and since i can't seem to get enough of decoupage, i'm head over heels with all the trays found here.
