We don’t often talk about ourselves here on Hatch, because this blog really isn’t about us – it’s about modern design and about you — our awesome customers.  But if we’re being honest (and we’re in the habit of doing so) our team here at Design Public is amazing with a capital A — so we thought it might be nice to highlight them this holiday season!

So why is our team so awesome?  Well, they love our customers.  They love our designers.  They love modern design.  Most of all, they are passionate about the intersection of those three and it shows in their work every single day.

Of course, when you see amazing design day in and day out like we do, it’s almost impossible not to develop a few favorites.  So, this holiday, we thought that we’d bring your our staff’s top picks for the holiday season!  Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration for the design buff, the love of your life, or even that hard-to-shop for person on your list.

Happy Holidays!

Ali, Merchandising – Loll Designs Cabrio Lounge Chair

“I’m a fan of any gift that has a built in bottle opener on it!”

Matt, Business Development – Modfire Urban Gasfire

“I do a lot of outdoor entertaining and inevitably, people like to huddle around the Modfire as soon as the sun sets.  It’s always the centerpiece of our summer BBQ’s.”

Karlie, Customer Service – Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpack

“I would love to have a diaper bag like this for when our son is born! The vibrant colors and backpack like style would make it easy to tote around all my little ones things!”

Morgan, Product and Marketing – Vitra Eames Elephant

“These elephants are fun, sturdy and add a touch of whimsy to any room. The kids love them and I love the playful design.”

Erika, Public Relations – Carl Mertens Slate Fireplace for the Tabletop

“I’m head over heels in love with the Carl Mertens Tabletop Fireplace. It is both elegant and unique, and makes an incredibly impressive conversation piece. Romantic dinner, anyone?”

Vic, Customer Service – Gus Modern Lightbox

“I love it. My cat loves it. One of these little guys defines ‘mood lighting’. Three or four and you’ve got yourself a party. It’s like a luminescent Transformer! It’s a table; no, it’s a lamp; no, it’s a stool! Awesome!”

Laura, Customer Service – Tocky Alarm Clock by Nanda Home

“Shhh!!  It’s a Christmas present for the kids – I can’t wait for them to start getting themselves up in the mornings!  Bonus – your purchase includes a donation to Global fund. How cool is that?”

Todd, Operations – Blu Dot Buttercup Chair

“It’s super-comfortable to sit in and I love the character of the wood. It goes great with a lot of different room environments.”

Michelle, Customer Service – Thomas Paul Lighting “Olivia Pendant Lamp”

“We actually have this lamp in my 3 1/2 year old daughter’s room and it is just gorgeous. We get compliments on it all the time! We installed it with a dimmer light bulb – and it’s just perfect. Bright when we need it to be, dim when the kiddo is sleeping, and beautiful to look at. It really brings the whole room together. Now all I need is a pendant lamp in every room!!”

Matt, MarketingnotNeutral Intelligentsia Cappuccino Cup and Saucer Set

“Co-designed by the fine people at Intelligentsia, need I say more…?”

Becky, BloggerVitra Butterfly Stool in Maple

“This elegant, sculptural and minimalist stool is on my fantasy wish list. Designed back in 1954 by Sori Yanagi, it has proven to be a timeless modern icon that is well worth the investment.”
