Remodelista Reconnaissance: Good-Looking Storage Jars in a Designer’s Pantry

Pantry of Martina Casonato London House via The Venetian Pantry

No surprise: We’re always in pursuit of good-looking jars for decanting bulk dry goods. So of course our interest was sparked by A Graphic Designer’s Redone Victorian, Where the Pantry Takes Center Stage: What does Martina Casonato, the homeowner and designer behind @thevenetianpantry, use in her own larder—the space she calls “the pantry of her dreams”?

Read on.

The Sighting

Above: “Nothing gives me quite the same sense of peace and fulfillment as the sight of a well-stocked pantry,” says Martina, who prioritized the pantry above all else in the remodel of her London townhouse. “It is truly my pride and joy and my happy place.” Behind fluted glass doors, the shelves are stocked with uniform and good-looking glass storage jars—no disposables in sight.

The Source

Round Glass Storage Containers with Bamboo Lids from Crate and Barrel
Above: “I actually use a mishmash of different containers,” Martina emailed us when we asked about her storage jar sources. “Most of them are from good old Ikea or from Tala. But I also love to recycle supermarket jars or my mum’s jam jars! It all contributes to creating that not-too-precious aesthetic that I love.” Martina uses the Ikea 365+ Dry food Jars on her top two shelves, but for a glass alternative, try the Round Glass Storage Containers with Bamboo Lids from Crate and Barrel, from $5.95 for the small size. (The complete set is currently on sale for $34.21.)

Above: We like Martina’s wide-mouthed glass vessels with wooden lids (good-looking; easy to scoop from). An Ikea version: The Ikea 365+ Jar with Lid is glass and bamboo and is just one of a slew of sizes and shapes available (like this one, spotted on the first shelf in Martina’s pantry, above the counter).
