The staff at GRShop and Gabriel Ross are always enjoying lively debates involving their favourite pieces of furniture, lighting and home accessories. This chilly November they have chosen some more great design objects that they are either hoping to receive or planning to give this holiday season.
Janell: These lovely Mater Bowl Tables strike a perfect balance between contemporary-modern and rustic-industrial chic. I specifically love the delicate strength and tapered shape of the steel legs and the fact that the bowls themselves are comprised of abundant, sustainably harvested mango tree wood. I hope I have been good - I know I have been if I receive one of these!
Lawrie: The Herman Miller Noguchi Table for sure! Why? Because it is graceful, organic, sleek and I want one for my home, the walnut base, please! Noguchi felt this table, with its simple elements consisting of one piece of free form glass and two perfectly and delicately balanced pieces of wood, was one of his best achievements. Imitated? Yes. Equaled? Never. Is it art, or is it furniture?
Garry: The Tom Dixon Stone Candle Holder is part of the Tom Dixon Eclectic Series of gifts and home accessories. An ultra-minimal, heavy candle holder carved from solid Morwad marble, these candle holders are reversible and can be used on both ends, holding a variety of candle shapes and sizes. Each piece features a brass logo disk on its base. Solid elegance for any table.
Christine: I love these geodesic-shaped Etch Tea Light Holders from Tom Dixon. Each is acid-etched with an intricate circle pattern that creates an amazing play of romantic light. They come in brass, copper and stainless steel. I have already given these as a gift and I wouldn’t mind receiving one! Suitable for use with tea lights. It is also available as a pendant light, check it out at: GRShop/Tom Dixon.
So relax, let the snow, sleet, wind and rain do its crazy, wintery thing. We have a great list of gift ideas at: http://grshop.com/featured.html
