There is more to Christmas than sweaters and new sneakers, so that’s why we’re shining a spotlight on the new Menu Brass Occasional Lamp. The Danish design collective has teamed up with Norm Architects to explore the boundaries between minimalist design and everyday objects to come up with a light that will work everywhere. Designed to fit perfectly on the desk, shelf or nook in the home that needs to be lit, the lamp can also be used as a paperweight if you remove inserted socket. It’s got the lot.
It’s likely that you’ve seen Marvis many times before – you've probably even enjoyed the Italian-brand's famous concoctions a few times before too. So, you’re probably all clued up on the strong cult following that the brand has amassed. Well, this Royal Wonders of the World Toothpaste is the latest flavour to be released from the Italian powerhouse and it’s one that we think you’re going to like a lot. Inspired by elegant and luxurious trips on the Orient Express, the Marvis Royal toothpaste has a unique and sophisticated flavour that combines zesty Italian lemon oil and tangerines with fragrant rose extract and nutmeg. It will captivate the senses of anyone who you gift it to this Christmas.
Finding a special gift for the art lover in your life is often a challenge. However, if you’re looking for a piece of limited-edition art from a new artist then you need to be looking to Dowse. Located in the heart of Brighton’s vibrant North Laine, Dowse proudly flies the flag for the best independent designers alongside its own art and jewellery created by Susannah Dowse. One of our favourites, the Desert Art Print, is not only incredibly affordable, but its warm pastel colours and contrasting grey background will be sure to enliven any living space.
A Pikaplant Terrarium is one of the finest gifts that you’ll give this Christmas for many different reasons. For one, the Dutch-based design studio have won a number of design accolades for its indoor plant-based products. Two, all Pikaplant jars are as low maintenance as they come; they’re living houseplants that you never need to water. And three, they bring a lot of unusual and usually hard-to-keep plants into the heart of the home, just like this Coffee Terrarium. Indigenous to the highlands of Ethiopia, the coffee arabica species accounts for 74% of the world’s coffee production, and the Dutch have been shipping these plants to coffee lovers around the globe since the 17th century. Who’d have thought it.
