A few weeks back we were alerted, via T magazine, to a new housewares shop in the heart of Munich: Nora Khereddine Objects. All of us were rapidly enamored, emailing back and forth from our respective houses with our wish-list finds. From Moroccan Tamegroute ceramics in impossibly dark, earthy greens to ever-so-slim taper candles, it’s the sort of shop that feels filled with unexpected discovery—all curated by Nora, a former lifestyle editor herself.

Take a look at a few of her offerings:

“The pottery workshops of Tamegroute date back to the 17th century and are among the oldest in the country,” according to the description on Nora Khereddine Objects. “The artisans collect the clay from deep holes in the ground up to ten meters deep. The signature green glaze contains a high proportion of manganese, copper, silica, cobalt, barley flour and stone powder. The components are mixed with water and left to thicken for few days. The firing process produces the characteristic green color.” This one is handmade by a potter named Said, “one of our favorite potters in the Moroccan village of Tamegroute.”
