  • Round #2 - The GRShop Staff's Gift Picks

    Round #2 of the GRShop and Gabriel Ross staff gift picks. We try to keep these items in stock for easy and quick shipping, and remember, most orders over $100 qualify for free shipping.

    Vanessa: Vanessa, the Gabriel Ross Showroom manager, has lots of great ideas to help you choose the perfect gift in this season of giving. You may like these suggestions so much you decide to self-gift this year, and that is always fun!

    "I bought the Risotto Plus for my mother last year and after hearing her rave about it I was finally able to use hers when I last visited. The Risotto Plus is not just for making risotto, you can also use it to steam your vegetables, cook rice and as a slow cooker. I love that everything can be done directly in one machine."

    The Breville Risotto Plus is an advanced multi-cooker that can make tender slow-cooked meals, stir-free risotto, fluffy rice and quinoa all in the same cooking bowl. It also has a sauté setting that allows you to caramelize all your lovely fresh ingredients.

    Vanessa also loves the Alessi Dressed in Wood Collection, designed by Marcel Wanders.

    "I was very excited when Alessi once again teamed up with Marcel Wanders to expand the Dressed Collection. Using a wood-cut laser technique, the Dressed in Wood Collection of platters has the iconic lace pattern cut into the surface. Paired together or separate, the wood platters not only serve a function but are great to look at."

    Get dressed for breakfast! The collection “Dressed in wood”, designed by Marcel Wanders, consists of a personal breakfast board, a serving board, two trays, a cheese board, a cake stand, a domed cover in clear thermoplastic resin with wooden knob and a big round centrepiece. Natural beech wood was chosen by the designer for all the articles in this collection. Get dressed for breakfast!

    Laura:  "I love Iittala's Teema Collection. It has a very sleek design and comes in an array of beautiful colours. If I had to pick one thing out of that collection to receive as a gift for Christmas it would be the Teema Mug in red. I have been eyeing that one in our showroom for sometime now."

    Functional, durable and refined, Teema is the perfect tableware for every day use. Plates, platters, cups and bowls, each and every Teema piece is oven, freezer, dishwasher and microwave safe. So not only will they look beautiful on your dining table, but they’ll make cooking, serving and clean-up a joy. Functional, durable and refined, Teema is the perfect tableware for every day use.

    Lawrie:  "I like the Artek Kanto Magazine/Firewood Rack in natural birch. It's a stylish, contemporary take on the bent plywood process that dates back to origins in the 1830s. So simple and so useful, it would look perfect sitting next to the fireplace or beside your cozy reading chair!

    Kanto is a newspaper stand or firewood rack made from one bent plywood sheet. Kanto, designed by Pancho Nikander in 2004, continues with honour Artek's tradition of bent wood products.

    Gary:  Gary loves all things Taika! Designed by Klaus Haapaniemi, for Iittala, Taika means ‘magic’ in Finnish. Taika lets you choose from a variety of bold and enchanting pieces. Haapaniemi’s illustrations inspire your own imagination and storytelling. The magical pattern created by Klaus Haapaniemi has been combined with the shape of the Aika Series designed by Heikki Orvola.

    The Iittala Taika Collection consists of many wonderful pieces, all very collectible. The Iittala Taika Collection consists of many wonderful pieces, all very collectible.

     

    In 2014 Iittala expanded the Taika Collection to home interior with new textiles - the Taika owl has landed on merino wool cushion covers, and a throw, available in blue or gray.

  • 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

    The Alessi Michael Graves Electric Kettle is also available in a stove top version, with a blue, black or white handle. The Alessi Michael Graves Electric Kettle is also available in a stove top version, with either a blue, black or white handle.
