Didriks, a stylish home shop in Huron Village, and its sister cookware shop down the street, Local Root, recently opened a combined spacious store in The Mill at Newton Lower Falls. Owner Jonathan Henke has curated a collection of stylish, utilitarian products, many European. Shelves are lined with sculptural stainless steel stockpots ($209 to $351) and Alessi casseroles ($152 to $323), French porcelain baking dishes, and rectangular roasters that look like cast iron by Revol ($40 to $184), and Mauviel’s beautiful curved French saute pans ($100 to $170). Sleek spatulas, ladles, whisks, and cheese slicers from the German company Rosle are here, along with Oxo Good Grips peelers, graters, and zesters (from $10). Sabre flatwear from France comes in two dozen fun, colorful patterns, like polka dots and gingham ($82 for 5 pieces). There’s fine tableware from Royal Copenhagen (up to $280 for a dinner plate) and everyday dishes from the Swedish company Rorstrand ($22), glassware from Vermont’s Simon Pearce (from $65), and sturdy Schott Zweisel wine glasses (from $9). Henke aims to make this location “an everyday store for everyone,” he says. Everyone with a little style, that is.
