The holiday season is now upon us! The air is crisp, bells are ringing and our shelves are stocked with loads of great contemporary gift items. This week you'll be introduced to a more personal side of Gabriel Ross: Our talented, design-savvy staff will be highlighting their top picks for the holidays.
Ross, owner of Gabriel Ross, picked Iittala's Essence Red Wine Glasses (set of 4):
"I love these wine glasses for their classic elegance. They're even more beautiful when they have a splash of your favorite wine in them. Best of all, they are both classic and contemporary at the same time, so they fit wonderfully with any table setting." - Ross
One of our Victoria showroom team members, Christine, recommends George Nelson's Special Edition Ball Clock in natural spruce from Vitra:
"This now-iconic Ball Clock, designed by George Nelson in 1948, features spheres of natural spruce balls and rays in classic red. Enjoy the joie de vivre of the 1950s this holiday season." - Christine
And another George Nelson design makes our list from our web team... Dan's top pick is the Nelson's Saucer Bubble Lamp suspension light fixture:
"My choice would be Modernica’s suspension Saucer Bubble Lamp. People won't be able resist commenting on it when they walk into your home. No wonder it is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The lamp is elegant, yet functional. It provides enough light to eat or even read a book by at the dining table. Putting the lamp on a dimmer switch allows you to instantly change the ambiance in your home.
And I almost forgot to mention... it's very affordable!" - Dan
Stay tuned for more holiday staff picks on the blog later this week!
