Umbra Leanera Coat and Shoe Rack

Why we love it: Like us, we know many of you may be tight on space. The Umbra Leanera can create an instant coat closet, guest room closet or mudroom rack where you don’t have one with an easy lean against the wall. It’s pleasing mix of simple materials creates a sculptural effect.

Designer: Wesley Chau

Materials: Wood and metal

Dimensions: 74″ x 27 1/4″ x 2 1/2″. Includes 6 hooks and holds up to 6 pairs of shoes

Price: $150*

Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted Half Lace Coffee Pot

Why we love it: As you may know, our sister store is Danish Design Store, and we have a penchant for all great Danish Design. The Blue Fluted pattern was Royal Copenhagen’s very first porcelain dinner service, introduced in 1775. Why so pricey? This is an heirloom that will be passed down for generations. And a lot of meticulous expert hand-painting goes into it— it takes 1,197 brush strokes just to paint one dinner plate!

Designer: Royal Copenhagen

Materials: Hand-painted porcelain

Dimensions: 34 oz

Price: $520*

Superliving Dynamo Pendant Light

Why we love it: The shape of this simple pendant gives it retro mid-century appeal that fits right in today. It comes in an array of colors including black, white and in metallic copper. The perforated edge lets the light come through in beautiful patterns.

Designer: Anette Stabel

Materials: Painted metal

Dimensions: 7.5″ w x 7.5″ d x 10″ high

Price: $115 (copper version is $135)*

Area Camille Pillow Cases in Pink

Why we love them: Winter is the best time to snuggle up in some truly luxurious bedding, and the most important spot to go luxurious is the spot that touches your face! And a pop of pink warms up a room. (If pink’s not for you, charcoal is also available.)

Designer: Anki Spets

Materials: 100% pure washed linen in a finer herringbone weave

Dimensions: 20″ wide x 25″ long

Price: $145 for a pair of standard pillow cases.* Other sizes and duvet covers are available as well.

Muuto FIVE POUF

Why we love it: The soft strips of fabric accentuate the pentagonal shape of this versatile pouf, which can be used as an ottoman or extra seat.

 

Designer:Anderssen & Voll

Materials: Wooden frame, moulded foam and Remix textile for Kvadrat

Dimensions: 17.7H x 34.6W x 33.8D

Price: $1249*

Great Gifts for Tea Lovers

Oh the blogs are always filled with talk of a warm cup of tea as the ultimate sign of comfort and even civility. Sometimes it’s such a cliche that it makes me roll my eyes, to be honest. But I have to admit, there’s something to it. Finding that perfect flavor, warming ones hands on a chilly day and relaxing with a few sips is a wonderful way to relax and creates an afternoon ritual — a time to take a little mental and physical break. OK, now you’re probably rolling your eyes at me.

Of course you likely have a loved one who talks tea more than anyone. They order Earl Grey at breakfast, Lemon Lift in the afternoon and get crazy with a mug-o-chai at Starbucks. They extol the virtues of antioxidents. The tea snob will usually hail from the U.K. and poo-poo our lazy teabags here in the states, and American tea aficionados have taken note and followed suit. These gifts are perfect for those folks who have turned tea into a hobby and passion. And they are long on style as well, from classic Royal Copenhagen to sleek Stelton to whimsical iittala. And while their odes to tea may make us roll our eyes, after they fix us a cup, we change our tunes.
