With the holidays just around the corner, we’ve taken the guesswork out of holiday gifting and created a specially curated themed gift guide for family and friends who love to entertain.
The bright airy feel of ‘Summer Flavours’ evokes memories of alfresco happy hours, backyard barbeques or patio parties. Set a summery tone with lush centrepieces made from flowers like Eustoma and Peonies. Circa, a mid-century modern inspired tabletop collection with its striped patterns makes a dramatic serving platform for fruits, cheese and other delicacies. Complete the look with Bar, which channels the streamlined retro-future aesthetic of the 1950s and 60s into contemporary cocktail accoutrements. For an easy-to-do dessert, fill each Bar martini glass with a single serving of ice cream sprinkled with fancy nonpareils, topped with mini pretzels.
Going over to the dark side can bode surprisingly well for intimate soirees or dinner parties. Rich colour schemes interspersed with shades of silvery or cool greys add a sparkle to an otherwise moody atmosphere. Bask in the warm peachy glow from Erik Magnussen oil lamps and tea lights while you or your guests savour drinks served in elegant Bar tumblers or add an element of surprise by serving your guests with take-home Art Deco style Savannah hip flasks. The contrast between the rigid textured dissipating vertical lines from a Vapour bowl by Nathan Yong, an award-winning Singaporean designer and the flowing organic ridges of the Landscapetrack tray by VW+BS, a well-known design studio, adds visual interest to the contemporary table.
The serene forms of Asian-inspired décor resonate beautifully with the streamlined style and neutral palette of the modern home. Showcase graceful oriental blooms like orchids or pussy willows in a tall Four Gentlemen vase which features flora which embodies the high ideals of a Confucian scholar or gentleman. Make a strikingtabletop statement with the Celestial Blessings Guan Gong, the embodiment of Chinese martial valour and virtue, portrayed in a rare scholarly pose. Enjoy a spot of Oolong or a favourite tea blend with Tranquility tea accessories, inspired by mountain peaks of the Far East, a potent source of inspiration for poets, scholars and artists.
Classic décor pieces lend a sense of sophistication to a traditional or contemporary living space. The elegant lattice structure and polished surfaces of the Crystalline candelabra provides a striking focal point for the dinner table. Serve reds or whites in style with the Streamline bottle chiller. Its insulating lining can be removed, turning the bottle chiller with its beautiful Art Deco-inspired motifs, into a vase. Sculpted in appealing detail, The Hazel Bunny Rabbit figurine and Bunnies Day Outjet rocket music carousel make sweet additions to the living space or great gifts for the little one.
