18 Karat used to be an insiders secret up until a few years ago when they opened their retail store on South Granville. Now everyone can benefit from owner Maureen Welton's eye for great design and even greater finds. A beautiful store is matched only with what is sold, covering the bases with planting, coffee table books, lighting, throws, vases and everything in between. Recently we have been coveting the Oscuro cookware. Made in Colombia, these natural clay pots received no vitreous glaze and are safe to use on all cooktops, dishwashers, grilles, ovens and even microwaves. Organic in shape and basic in form, the best vessel in which to present your latest culinary achievement.
