What better item to have on your bar than the American symbol of hospitality? Legend has it that during Colonial times New England sea captains returning from the Caribbean would bring back rum, spices and pineapple. The unique fruit was placed at a captain’s front door as an invitation to friends to visit, listen to tales of his voyage and share in food and drink.

Extend to your friends the same invitation with the Carmen Pineapple Ice Bucket from CB2 ($70). With an etched and polished aluminum exterior and matte silver powdercoated interior, this conversation starter stands 11.5 inches tall and 6.25 inches in diameter. It also can be used as a cookie jar or a whimsical objet d’art, or in a guest room filled with travel-size toiletries.
