So it is almost Christmas and for those of you who haven’t finished your Christmas gift shopping I have put together my top ten gifts for the design conscious. In no particular order there is something for everyone at various price points. There may also be a few hints for those buying for me this year…
Merry Christmas everyone.
- Geometric Art Prints from Studio cockatooFrom $20www.hardtofind.com.au
These are so fun and with numerous designs to choose from they will brighten up any room in your house. If you wanted them to look a bit more special, you can think about sending them off to Bumblejax for them to put behind acrylic glass to really make your photo look vibrant.
2. Turkish Towels
Perfect for hot summer days at the beach, light and quick drying these are the must have summer beach accessory
3. Dial Hose Hanger from Designed by Them
For the complete design obsessed person that has everything, I bet they won’t have one of these awesome hose reels. I want one.
4. Bose Soundlink Mini
Seriously a great present, I got one under the tree last year and it keeps me bopping at my desk all day.
5. Kaleido trays by Clara Von Zweigbergk for HAY
You can’t beat having a piece of modern Danish design and these trays are sure to be a design classic.
6. Wooden Hands by HAY Studio
Well, why not – they are just cool.
7. Vogue Living – Houses Gardens People
A must have in your library for any design aficionado this gorgeous coffee table book is filled with pages of glamour and design inspiration.
8. Retro Blue Lego Lamp
Um, seriously this doesn’t need explaining it’s a lamp made out of lego and authorised by Lego. Available in various shapes and colours, check it out.
9. ‘Call Me’ Print
$55 – $1045
I love The Giant Art Project and I think this print is a great conversation starter.
The bigger the better with these guys.
10. Better World Arts Cushions – Rama Sampson
You can never have too many cushions and these, a collaboration between Indigenous Artists from the APY lands in South Australia and traditional handicraft practitioners in the remote Himalayan region of Kashmir.
Each and every cushion sold brings direct benefits to the artists involved.
