Give Away A Piece of History For The Holidays
by Liza Laserow
1. Napkins with map of Stockholm. Svenskt Tenn’s founder Estrid Ericson had a great fondness for beautifully set tables. With designs by Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson, these napkins will decorate every table setting. They are suitable for both everyday use and special occasions.
2. Vase “Acorn”. At her summer home Tolvekarna, Estrid Ericson came up with the idea of letting acorns sprout in a single small glass vase. The form was inspired by the classic acorn shape and she broadened the neck slightly so that the acorn could fit into place easily and take root.
3. Scented candle “BIBLIOTHÈQUE” from Byredo. With a degree in fine arts the Swedish born Ben Gorham discovered his passion for perfumes after meeting perfumer Pierre Wulf. Working with the best in the industry we are now able to enjoy his beautiful scents. “BIBLIOTHÈQUE” is my personal room fragrance favorite with top notes peach and plum on a base of patchouli, leather and vanilla. The perfect blend of feminine and masculine.
4. Throw pillow from Svenkt Tenn. A Swedish design that has been loved from Stockholm to New York and Shanghai and home again. The textile is hand-printed in Sweden, on 100% cotton or linen.
5. Baroque mirror from Laserow Antiques. A gift of love to the picky and interior design oriented friend who’s home has it all. Made ca 1670 during the Baroque period. Will enhance any powder room or hallway with its gorgeous gold / silvery finish.
6. Set of marble items from Kålmorden, Sweden. Made in a marble typical for the city. For your dad or hard working husband to put on the desk to keep their chatzkies in order.
7. Pair of bowls in bronze on a marble base – so called Tazzas made 1830-1840. Give these to your fav hostess to serve salt and pepper in at her next fab dinner party.
