Clockwise from top left:

Top Brass

This brass and leather ice bucket by Bradburn Home nods to the aesthetics of old-school lake cabins, but its classic good looks would be at home most anywhere around 5:00 in the afternoon ($398; onekingslane.com).

Clear Winner

The crystal bowl of this ice bucket by Match magnifies its brilliance, while the solid pewter base gives the design handsome heft ($400; including pewter tongs, match1995.com).

Tropical Punch

Bring the hothouse glamour of 1960s Palm Beach to happy hour with this new woven rattan style by Aerin Lauder for Williams Sonoma ($80; williamssonoma.com).

White Hot

Equal parts modern sculpture and functional vessel for icing down beverages, this diminutive model by Tina Frey Designs is just the right size for a party of two ($196; tinafreydesigns.com).

Natural Wonder

Bring the outside in with this faux bois ice bucket by Michael Aram, who took cues from the rustic beauty of tree bark when he created this polished aluminum and stainless-steel piece ($225; michaelaram.com).
