Holiday Wish List: Day Seven
WGSN Staffer: Gemma Riberti, Senior Editor, Lifestyle & Interiors, London
The holiday season is here, and I’ve been so busy thinking about presents for the others – the perks of Christmas being a large family & friends affair – that it’s about time I take a moment to actually put down my own wish list!
I have been coveting these brass plant supports by Michael Anastassiades for a while, they suspend the seed just above water so it can germinate. I love the perfect simplicity of the design, the discreet metallic gleam and the beauty of watching a plant grow.
Even though I am usually not one for ornate pattern in the home I find the whole Klaus Haapaniemi collection for this winter really intriguing, with its dark, fairytale theme. A tray populated by these fantastical creatures would be the perfect decorative touch.
Lastly, cozy knits are on my list, both for myself and for my home: the chunky, supersized throws by brand Ohhio are a dream to wrap up into.
I also find the London-based Unmade project of made-to-order knitted jumpers and scarves the extremely fresh and innovative. Its concept fits very well into the growing direction of design being less about things, less about unnecessary production and more about experiences, customer involvement and sustainability – a direction I care very much about.
