  • GRShop & Gabriel Ross Staff Holiday Wish List, 2014: #2

    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!

    The Mater Bowl Table series, designed by Ayush Kasliwal/ IND, is made of Sustainably harvested natural mango wood with steel legs and is available in 4 sizes and 3 stains: Natural, black and sirka grey.

    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?

    The Herman Miller Noguchi Table, designed in 1948 by Isamu Noguchi, is available in 4 finishes: black, walnut, natural cherry and white ash. Isamu Noguchi's signature appears on the edge of the glass top.

    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.

    All the Tom Dixon Eclectic gifts and home accessories are designed in London and formed from honest and resilient materials. This candle holder is available in 2 sizes.

    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.

    The Tom Dixon Etch Tea Light has detailed patterns cut directly onto the metal, creating a mass of intricate shadows when lit. The Tom Dixon Etch Tea Light has detailed patterns cut directly onto the metal, creating a mass of intricate shadows when lit.

  • GRShop & Gabriel Ross Staff Holiday Wish List for 2014: #1

    What are you giving - and hoping to receive - this holiday season? The staff at GR Shop and Gabriel Ross are a design savvy bunch who are constantly surrounded by beautiful objects. It is hard to choose one favourite from all the possible pieces but here are their choices for a happy holiday season.

    Ross:  For the traveller on your list, it has to be the Alessi 9090 Espresso Maker. I personally always travel with the 6 cup size, as it can make two Americanos in one go by adding 3 espresso shots to each mug with a little boiling water. No one wants to start a day on the road with bad coffee so take one of these very nicely designed, easy to use, espresso makers along for the ride.

    The Alessi 9090 Espresso Maker, designed by Richard Sapper in 1980, is available in 3 sizes: 1 cup, 3 cups and 6 cups. A perfect start to a holiday morning.

    Amber: The Herman Miller Eames Hang It All is my choice.  Great design and super functional, Ray and Charles Eames elevated the everyday coat rack into something inventive and fun. First crafted with multicolored balls and a white wire frame, two new monochromatic options, all-black and all-white, are now available and they expand the sense of play and inventiveness of the original. With young kids around the house, this would be a great gift to receive!

     

    The Herman Miller Eames Hang It All is great for hallways, bathrooms, kid's rooms, anywhere you need to add function and fun. It is available with multi- coloured wooden balls or all-black or all-white balls.

    Vanessa: Everyone loves eclectic objects and the Vitra Eames House Bird is one of my favourites to add to anyone's collection. The masterfully simplistic black bird (circa 1910) with its tapered beak and sleek tail was evidently one of Ray and Charles Eames' most prized objects of Appalachian folk art. It became famous in the 1950s when it was featured in a poster highlighting some of their chairs.  Vitra used 3-D scans of the original to create the solid alder wood reproduction that is made today in Germany.

    The Eames House Bird is made of black lacquered solid alder and has steel wire legs. Add it to your collection! The Vitra Eames House Bird is made of black lacquered solid alder and has steel wire legs. Add it to your collection!

     

    Alexandra: As an avid tea drinker I love the Alessi Michael Graves Electric Kettle, with its bird-shaped whistle. A beautiful classic, it does what it's supposed to do: look good and boil water - quickly! This kettle combines modern design with a bit of whimsy and it will bring some beauty into your everyday life. And the little bird may even make you smile. It is also available in a stove top version. Check it out at: GRShop.com
