As the adage goes, water is the essence of life. Every living organism needs it for its cells to survive. On average, adults need at least two liters a day. So, how can one hydrate in style? That’s where Nest Casa steps in with a selection of water carafes for home and office use. Note: A water carafe differs from a water pitcher in that it doesn’t have a handle and is usually smaller.

Just about when Evian hit the U.S. market in the late Seventies, a health and fitness craze swept the nation, imparting with it the importance of drinking water. Hence, bottled water became a hit. Once the environmental ills of our reliance on plastic became exposed, opting for filling a water carafe with your own perfectly healthy water (filtered or tap) is becoming the norm. Besides, water carafes were a part of daily life before modern convenience. Choose one that fits your needs and satisfies your taste in all senses of the word.

The Bedside Water Carafe

Keeping water by your bedside is a convenience: it helps to avoid getting up in the middle of the night for a drink of water. It also encourages a good habit to start the day. Ever wonder why you wake up thirsty? When we sleep, the body is naturally depleted of fluids and electrolytes. In this style, the lid doubles as a cup, which means that everything is always on hand for a refreshing thirst quencher. This Czech glass style has a post-industrial, modern feel. Toyo Sasaki and Crate & Barrel’s CB2 line each have their own colored, smoky glass versions while Italian glass star Nason Moretti presents a green set with two glasses (so that a couple can benefit from a bedside water stand).

The Colorful Water Carafe

For the color enthusiast, a water carafe is just another way to add a pop or two into your existing décor. Because, to be clear: These are not water holders to tuck away for special occasions—especially, when it comes to show-offs like these Murano glass stunners from Nason Moretti and Carlo Moretti. (There is no relation between the two, only their shared skill at making cheery Murano glass.) Nason’s Fuschia Morandi Bottle No. 7, inspired by Italian artist Giorgio Morandi, comes in a slew of hues. Carlo’s bottle features a random peppering of blue and turquoise circles on a clear glass vessel that can serve as a water carafe, a wine decanter, or a vase (depending on need). 

Danish designer Helle Mardahl has made a name for herself with blob-like glass vases in irresistible colors. That same sentiment is on display in the Bon Bon jug, which has a designated spot in a happy yellow hue. Equally upbeat is this peacock blue Luisa carafe from R+D LAB. Its mouth-blown shape is tall and slender, recalling modernist and rationalist architecture—a fun fact to impress guests with.

The Clear Glass Water Carafe

For the purist, a clear carafe is the only way to go—which might be for aesthetic reasons. Indeed, the minimalist-minded doesn’t want color to sully the view. Clear glass is also practical. Any impurities or particles that may find their way inside the carafe can be easily spotted.

Wine expert Jancis Robinson paired up with designer Richard Brendon to create this unfettered, no-nonsense, mouth-blown glass carafe made in England. Nude offers its take on a clean and graphic approach with the angular Beak water decanter. 

The company also has a cheeky side, which it displays in its Mr. & Mrs. Night water set. The cap slash cup is etched to resemble a snoozing face. Lastly, the crystals in this Gem-Water carafe diffuse their good energy into the water, making this H2O even more beneficial.

The Crystal Water Carafe

The ultimate decanted water comes in a crystal carafe that formalizes the experience even further. Tiffany & Co. suggests this elegant, long-neck bottle, which can be used for both holding water or decanting wine. Then, with elegant etching that plumes up toward the spout and down toward the base, Lalique’s 100 Points carafe is inarguably dignified. Yet, even luxe crystal can have a playful side. Nude’s Parrot carafe and Baccarat’s Faunacrystopolis Harcourt decanter are both designed to resemble birds, showing that even a formal carafe d’eau can be amusing.
