The year is drawing to a close and Christmas is right around the corner. This Christmas, add a personal touch to your gifts by finding treasures that complement interiors. Fit each home décor piece to suit your loved ones’ personality, and give them something with style.
Simplicity at its finest. These bookends are the ideal gift for the bookworm in your family. Their understated style is drawn from architectural influence and will go with just about any design aesthetic. Designer Ella Shegai has created a practical piece of art – not just a bookend, it can be used as a stand-alone sculpture, or even a paper press.
XcE BATHTUB CADDY
For that person who deserves a spa day. This bathtub caddy is extendable, so fits most bathtubs and is made from 100% eco-friendly bamboo. A glass of wine, a good book and a beautifully-scented candle can all be popped on top, creating a serene space away from it all. In fact, why not buy two – you deserve a treat this year!
