11 Gorgeous Home Decor Items to Gift This Year

Special finds to make the space.

Jack Be Nimble

What looks like a beautiful chain of rose-gold jacks is actually the Alessi Tripod trivet ($74), part of the clever Objets-Bijoux collection: arrange it to support any sized hot pot in style.

Ideal Setting

Eschew the traditional red, green and gold colour palette for the organic lines of the Lark table runner ($135).


Reclaimed steel from B.C. mines and logging operations form the basis of Timothy Dyck’s one-off Relevant Series of sculptural bowls (from $700). “The focus is on bringing forgotten history into our homes in a tangible way,” says Dyck.

Cozy Up

Made of luxurious grey wool, the Tartan Blanket Company throw (from $55) marries a traditional herringbone pattern with modern design.

Ahead of the Curve

Just launched at Maison et Objet, Tom Dixon’s Bump series (from $76) of versatile borosilicate glassware vases and tumblers—and one smashingly cool teapot!—is sure to spawn many imitations.

Circle Gets the Square

The new Hoop magazine rack ($60) by Umbra Shift gives periodicals or records (up to 24 of them) pride of place. Available in black or pink.

Social Media

Douglas Coupland’s aphorisms have appeared en masse in museums and streetscape installations. Now Vitra issues them in poster form ($20).

Graphic Design

The new Tempe throw and pillow set by Vancouver designer Zoe Garred ($139) is made from coordinating patterns of soft woven cotton—ideal for après-ski lounging.

Upper Deck

With original illustrations and typography, Misc Goods Co.’s playing cards ($20) are quite possibly the most beautiful we’ve ever shuffled.

Fired Up

Keep your yule log supply fully stocked in the beautiful handcrafted Wronko Woods firewood carrier ($450).

Back to the Future

The Olympus Pen-F ($1,499) is styled after the 1963 original but with 20.3 megapixels and digital ease of use.
