In the last of my Christmas Gift Edit series, I’m sharing coveted designs for under £300. We still have a fair bit to get finished and ready for the big day, hence the reason for the late posting of this guide, but I’ll wager there’s still a few bits left on your list too! Not surprisingly, I’ve picked out a monochrome selection of European and British made designs for your home. These are pieces that will stand the test of time and fit seamlessly into your home for many years to come. Let’s take a look…
| 1 | No gift edit is complete without a little Danish design somewhere. The Poly Coat Rack in oak from Skagerak was inspired by a seed head – a tactile shape and perfect for small spaces too. £179, Skandium.
| 2 | What I wouldn’t give to come home and find Crane cookware waiting in my kitchen. Aside from the fact that they’re black enamel, they’re designed in Britain and made from 30% recycled materials. They’re 100% recycleable too. Not that you’d ever need to replace it. £145, Clippings.
| 3 | Smokey glass and brass Echasse bowl, by Menu. £239, Monologue.
| 4 | Smart enough to take with you everywhere, this Marimekko Eppu backbag is a stylish canvas and leather update. £185, Tea and Kate.
| 5 | A trolley is a versatile piece to have in the house. Use it to store your drinks, somewhere to put your plants or books or bring it out as extra surface space when you’ve got friends over. Light grey Block trolley, Normann Copenhagen. £205, Made In Design.
| 6 | For the ultra-organized, the Uten.Silo, designed by Dorothee Becker in 1969 is enough to satisfy the neat freak. Perfect storage for the office, kitchen and anywhere that requires pleasing little pockets. £265, Vitra.
| 7 | A family with over half a century of loom weaving history, Mourne Textiles are still making beautiful blankets and cushions from the foot of the Mourne mountains in Ireland. Their classic 1956 Shaggy Dog weave cushion is one of my absolute favourites. £185, Mourne Textiles.
| 8 | TOAST always make the most sumptuous blankets and this Knitted British wool throw is no exception – look at those tassels! £225. TOAST.
| 9 | French design brand Harto are still quite new to these shores, I love their sophisticated mix of wood and brass with satisfying curves. Say hello to the Nina table lamp. £177, Made In Design.
| 10 | A 1960s classic now produced by Hay, the J110 chair still holds its own in a more contemporary setting. An ideal seat for the head of the table if you ask me. £219, Nest.
So, here it is – my last post of 2017. I hope you’ve found my Christmas gift edit series a help in some way shape or form. Maybe you’ve discovered a few new designers or shops?
I’ll be back in the new year with fresh, new interior inspiration, including the big reveal of our kitchen refresh. I’ve been slowing chipping away at it for a couple of months now, so I’m ridiculously excited to share the finished project with you!
Thank you as always for taking the time to read and enthuse with me. Wishing you a wonderfully slow Christmas break with friends and family and a very Happy New Year. See you soon.
