While the holidays are a time for gift-giving it is equally essential to bear in mind what will fill the void once the seasonal decor is packed away until next year. Vancouver’s Livingspace is the one-stop-shop for luxury Italian home furnishings that will find a place at home all year-round. Ranging from the utilitarian to the extravagant, Livingspace’s picks are made for the interior design aficionado in your life.
For the Collector
From Elena Salmistraro of storied Italian design brand, Bosa Ceramics comes a celebration of the 90th birthday of Walt Disney’s original icon, Mickey Mouse. This handmade sculpture features hand-painted details and gold highlights and makes for a whimsical entry to any living room.
For The Entertainer
Little touches can transform a dinner party, and for the most elegant of affairs, look to the Kaplicky champagne cooler ($2,750) from Lasvit which features organic curves and a futuristic quality. Named after the famed Czech architect Jan Kaplicky, the cooler speaks to a world-class design that surely can make the taste of the champagne it holds even more incredible.
For the Arranger
This innovative piece is the result of a procedure in glassblowing that results in a distorted sphere holding an opaque milk glass and an LED lamp. Vancouver’s own Bocci created the 28 Table Light ($480) as an eclectic addition to any side table, and it makes a great gift for anyone with a penchant for great local design.
For the Organizer
‘Zhuang‘ is translated from Chinese as to protect something precious and to the dedicated stationery-lover, there is nothing more precious than the tools of the trade. The Zhuang containers designed by Neri & Hu for Poltrona Frau are a series of stackable containers made of the finest materials. The multi-purpose box ($810), pen holder case ($570), and working pad ($810) feature Canaletto walnut and saddle leather and are truly the meeting place between elegance and creativity.
For the Minimalist
When making an impression with minimalist details, look to Editions Milano’s collection of crown-shaped vases, designed to be imaginative and serious in the same breath. The vases are carved from four diverse kinds of marble and are arranged so that each piece tells its own story. The collection is best enjoyed in its fullest arrangement (prices range from $820 to $1,040)
