The world has indeed changed over the past 50 years; but it turns out that creative and colorful housewares are popular today, just as they were back in 1959, when Leifheit unveiled its first cool and colorful wares in Germany.

Today, Leifheit USA is witnessing a surprising return to products that beckon back to simpler times – though with a decidedly contemporary twist.

Leifheit’s sleek, Euro-style housewares – such as canning jars, kitchen scales, push sweepers, laundry lines, step stools and nifty kitchen tools –are all finding their way into modern homes, where the economy and the environment are top of mind.

And the Leifheit tagline of “always a better idea” is as true today as ever.

To celebrate 50 years of innovative housewares, Leifheit International USA is giving away five $50 shopping sprees on their new e-commerce site,

In celebration of our new online shopping site we are offering free shipping on ALL orders.

But HURRY! Offer ends at noon on December 21, 2009.

Leifheit USA just opened a new online shopping site!  It features a sale page, product videos, links to our social media sites, and more.

Check it out and let us know what you think.
