As traditional as roasted chestnuts and corked sherry, gift recommendations are what make Christmas for us.
This year, however, we start with a friendly warning.
The lead times for many of our suppliers are creeping upwards – and although we have a well stocked and bountiful warehouse; should you want to order something extra special as a gift for a loved one, and we have to order it – it’s getting tight.
The “traffic light system” in the (smow)shop provides an instant guide to availability; should you however have any queries please contact the (smow) customer service centre in advance of ordering. There a team of highly trained advisers can provide detailed information on availability and delivery times.
Unless they’ve found the Glühwein!
Below we present a selection of suggested festive gifts. Just heed our words, and order early ….
Nils Holger Moormann’s Liesmichl is not only the ideal side table for all Bibliophiles it is also the perfect gift for all Bibliophiles. With storage space for books, an ingenious holder to ensure you don’t lose your page and a handy shelf for mince pies and sherry, Liesmichl offers everything you need to ensure a relaxed and stress-free reading experience.
That little something different for all fans of 1960s graphic art. The Vitra Design Museum have produced a wonderful range of plastic trays featuring classic designs by Alexander Girard, George Nelson and Charles & Ray Eames. From bold geometric forms over abstract an onto modernistic folk art there is something for everyone in this beautiful collection.
For all those who don’t have room for the absurdly fantastic Horse Lamp – or who suffer from Equinophobia – Front’s Rabbit Lamp is more than a touch of leporidaen charm for your home or office; it’s also a warming and atmospheric lamp perfect for desk, side-table or bedside table.
Summer may be gone – but it’ll come again. And in any case with Cobb Grill you don’t need sun, wasps and the great outdoors to barbecue – the patented design of the Cobb Grill means it can be safely and smoke free used indoors. Barbecue Goose… lovely stuff
For that colonial, South Sea Island feel you can’t beat Rattan furniture. And nothing says W. Somerset Maugham more than Egon Eiermann’s 1950s designs. At 42 cm high and with its concave top the E 14 is perfect as an occasional stool or as an unoccasional side table
