A Bevvy of Buckets: Modern Champagne Coolers & Ice Buckets
With so much buzz about the Globalight, Karim Rashid and Veuve Clicquot's collaboration that produced a glowing pink champagne holder that doubles as a cooling tote and keeps bottles at the ideal temperature for up to two hours, I thought I might share some lovely modern champagne bucket alternatives from Veuve Clicquot as well as from two other companies.
Above: Only 500 Globalights have been created worldwide. In the United States, they are available for purchase here and cost $4,500.
Don't want to spend $4,500 on a champagne bucket? Here are some much less expensive alternatives from Veuve Clicquot:

And for other fabulous options, here are two other companies.
On the pricey side, l'Orfèvrerie d'Anjou, a French company, is a world leader of shiny pewter in the luxury industry. They are goldsmiths who have literally been plying their trade for almost three centuries and they are a respected company, whose products start at around $350.00. Here are a few of their more unsual and modern buckets:
Buy them all here.
Another company who makes pretty modern champagne buckets for a lower price than the aforementioned, with some designed by Karim Rashid for the Kohinoor collection, is Magpie of India:

You can also find the Magpie buckets along with other modern champagne buckets by Blomus and Alessi at Unica Home.
