As you're planning your holiday meals and get-togethers, an elegant water carafe is a must for your dining room table. I have the perfect water jug, from Creative Danes. This water jug has a unique shape that makes for easy pouring, yet looks elegant while sitting on your table. It also has a lid with mechanism to automatically open when you pour...so that your ice, lemon slices, etc. stay in the jug, but dust and other objects stay out! I absolutely love using this carafe. It creates a delightful effect when placed on a table that is already set with special dishes. Even when I use it just with our family dinner, it adds a special touch of elegance to an otherwise everyday meal! The jug holds 1.3 liters of water. I love adding lemon or lime slices to the jug before adding water, and it gives a delicious citrus hint to the water without having to worry about seeds, etc. floating in your water glass. (Have you ever had that happen at a restaurant? I don't know how many times I've sucked a lemon seed up my straw!) With the unique lid on this jug, though, it keeps the seeds in the carafe...not in your glass.

"We, Helle Jensen and Lars Nielsen – founders of Creative Danes Inc., arrived in the US in 2002 for Lars to attend Harvard Business School, and we immediately fell in love with the country and its people.
As native Danes we found that we could add something to the wide variety of design products in the US - Great Scandinavian Designs. As Idaho has potatoes and Napa has wines, Scandinavia has amazing product designers of everything from furniture to house ware gadgets and jewellery. There are literally hundreds of talented and extremely creative design companies in Scandinavia, but their products are rarely found here in North America.
Creative Danes mission is simple. The company wants to bring the very best of Scandinavian Design to North America.
Creative Danes Inc. works as a distributor buying and selling the products in the company’s name. This brings benefits to our suppliers since they can expect large orders from us when we buy in bulk. Furthermore it benefits our customers when taking advantage of our inventory in the US and thus doesn’t have to deal with high minimums and outrageous shipping and duty charges.
We believe in creating partnerships with sub distributors and independent manufacturers’ representatives in order to create distribution for our partners. Also we try to find innovative distribution channels for our partners’ products to further expand the reach."
