Would you like the experience of dining on a luxury train without leaving your home? Then get a hold of this sleek dining compartment called Il Treno.
Made by Dutch design studio Tjep, the intimate dining set was fashioned after the iconic Orient Express. It features optional drawer space for storing fine china and other dining equipment. The design is supported by black metal bars, which add a bit of allure to the overall look.
Il Treno would be a lovely fit in a modern home kitchen or at restaurants tight on space but with a desire for a cozy ambiance. The model is available in ash or oak wood and will be exhibited at the upcoming 2013 Salone del Mobile design fair in Milan.
Rather than just being faux-meat, Mamu is different. It's a mushroom-based meat alternative that's getting its launch in restaurants so that chefs can test its versatility. Flora Tsapovsky investigates.
