  • Gabriel Ross Holiday Staff Picks: 3

    Here's the last segment of our holiday staff picks blog series. Today we are featuring products that appeal to coffee drinkers, desk workers and even new babies!

    Mirella, one of our web team members and new Mom, recommends the Cyclephants mobile by Flensted:

    "There's nothing like watching a little baby discover the world around her. Before my daughter was born I bought the Cyclephants Flensted Mobile to decorate her room. Little I did I know at the time that those sweet "flying" elephants would provide her with hours of entertainment and joy. Whenever a new baby is born in the family, that's my first gift of choice." - Mirella

    Those that sit for long hours at a desk would definitely enjoy Laura's top pick: the SAYL Task Chair by Yves Béhar for Herman Miller:

    "Of course my choice is the Sayl Task Chair. It is the perfect chair for me because I am short and my feet can actually touch the ground. I sit in a Basic Sayl Chair all day and it gives me the support I need so I am not sore by the end the day. It is super comfortable and I love the fact that you can choose from many colour options (I love the blue)." - Laura

    Last, but certainly not least ... the perfect gift for espresso and americano lovers: Richard Sapper's Espresso Maker for Alessi, recommended by Amber:

    Another Charles and Ray Eames classic is, of course, the Wire Base Low Table and this year Herman Miller has re-issued it as one of their "Select" products for 2012. As an homage to the 100th anniversary of Ray Eames' birth, they've offered this piece in some of her favourite colours including red-orange, cobalt blue and yellow-gold. While this table isn't part of the sale as a Select product, at a regular retail price of $294 (at the time of this post) this is a rare opportunity to own or gift this iconic Eames design with a special and unique finish:

    One Herman Miller product that is bound to be on any and all mid-century modern and/or just plain beauty and comfort lovers is, of course, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman. This chair under the tree is enough to make anyone squeal with sparkly wreath hanging, tinsel tangled, snowman on the front lawn and snickerdoodles in the oven holiday joy:
