From designer Felicia Ferrone of Chicago-based Fferrone comes one of the best-looking water filters we’ve seen yet. The Talise and Fluted Talise are made in the Czech Republic of mouth-blown borosilicate glass and can be used with or without a filter.
Above: Both water carafes work with a standard water filter cartridge (a Brita Filter Refill, for example).
Above: The more glamorous Fluted Talise blends two types of borosilicate glass for the carafe and the glass funnel. It’s $160 at Fferrone Design and is also available at The Future Perfect and YLiving.
Above: Like the standard Talise, the Fluted Talise holds 84 fluid ounces without the filter funnel.
