I take nearly every photo on this blog and while my white dining room floor makes a good backdrop for most of them, it does get boring. To add some visual interest to my photos, I picked up a set of Kaleido Trays a few months back. They were definitely an investment but since then, theyâ€™ve been the perfect prop, whether Iâ€™m snapping a product shot or using them alongside my design projects.
The thing to note about the trays is the quality â€” these arenâ€™t flimsy, molded plastic. Theyâ€™re powder coated steel. Designed in 2012 by Clara von Zweigbergk for HAY (arenâ€™t all of their products awesome?!), I now find myself using them nearly every day, whether itâ€™s to hold a vase of flowers, brighten up the guest room or be a catch-all near my desk.
The great thing about Kaleido Trays is that you can buy singles or the full set. Itâ€™s up to you.
