Deal of the Week: Greek Key Tray

18" brass greek key tray from Nate Berkus

My obsession with classical Greek art and architecture -- and particularly greek key -- is well documented at this point (see HERE and HERE). I've got bold greek key lamps in my living room and a smattering of the classical motif elsewhere throughout the house. So of course when I spied this brass and mirror greek key tray from Nate Berkus (on sale for $49.99!) over at HSN.com (which has rapidly become my new online shopping obsession -- HSN is so much more than costume jewelry and weird beauty gimmicks these days!), I couldn't resist.

The tray in its new home...my den

This was my first purchase from Nate's line and I was admittedly nervous about the quality as Nate's previous line at Bed, Bath & Beyond was very hit and miss. But, when the tray arrived just a few days later, I was pleasantly surprised by its quality. The tray is large, weighty and looks significantly more expensive in person than its $50 price tag would suggest.

All in all, I'd say it's just about the perfect gift this holiday season for the design aficionado on your list. But caveat emptor: you may want to keep this one for yourself.

Lovely! Why can't my mom ever send something like this from QVC? It's always indoor herb gardens, electroplated bracelets and strange looking Santas! xo kitty

This could happily live in my home! I need to check out HSN! And also, I see a peak of a gorgeous lamp, gold base and black shade...where did you find this beauty? I'm looking for a pair, I broke one of my master bedroom lamps today! :(

HSN?

Dear God.

But I do like the tray very much. Would've made a good Christmas present. Just saying.

GREAT find! Must now check out HSN. Have seen the ads for Nate's stuff there, but wasn't sure... Have a great weekend, Averill!

OMG - I saw this recently but it didn't have that price attached. I do have a birthday coming. Must cut & paste this to my husbands forehead.

Thanks Averill. You have the best taste. Happy weekend & enjoy the **snow**

I love this tray, Averill! Such a nice touch -- a little metallic to make the look even more special.

Gorgeous find!
