Give a special Christmas

Gift ideas for lovers of design

A touch of design is always welcome. It’s a golden rule that should be written in huge letters in the “perfect gift handbook” to be read for the imminent arrival of Christmas. There are many people who are passionate about design objects, which can be as meaningful as a jewel and can remain with us for the rest of our lives. From the Timor Danese calendar by Enzo Mari, to the Anna G. bottle-opener designed by Alessandro Mendini for Alessi, to the Brionvega radio or the fun Mouse table lamp by Seletti that looks like Mickey Mouse, and the always up-to-date Moka Bialetti: design always embellishes our homes. Today we want to give you some tips for design gifts!

For each their own design gift!

There are today numerous websites that deal with design; you just have to surf the internet to find the perfect armchair or lamp for your living room of your mother or best friend. ARCHIPRODUCTS, for example, is a portal for the online sale of furniture design objects (for which there is also a physical space in Milan and a store in Bari) with a catalogue of 200,000 products and 3,500 brands. Or there is LOVETHESIGN, a Milan e-commerce company with an international approach to trends, an “online boutique” because here the most important aspect is the selection: there is an Italian focus on a global production. Here you are spoilt for choice.

Enhancing our environments

Design objects can really enhance our spaces, but to do this, they have to be inserted in contexts that make the most of their lines and characteristics. The finishes of floors and walls are fundamental for making an environment unique, the right setting for enhancing our design objects, articles that will accompany our lives for a long time. Ceramica Fioranese has created ideal collections for creating a common thread between design elements and spaces. “I Variegati”, for example, is a perfect collection for giving a touch of style to an entire environment, thanks, especially, to the very particular formats available; “I Variegati” reinterprets the tradition of Italian excellence such as variegated terracotta, creating original mixes and formats, combining the beauty of traditional terracotta with the extremely high performance of industrial technology. Mashup, instead, is the result of the combination of two materials: “Dolomia”, a really beautiful Limestone that draws inspiration from the marvellous Italian Dolomites, and “New Blend”, a soft and coated cement. A palette with soft shades will accompany the pieces of design that we love most, underlining their balance and beauty. Fio.Glossy Brick is a line of products that combines design and fashion, craft and technology. It’s a collection that will make our environments special, enhancing both floors and walls, thanks to the unique palette of colours and the super-trendy extremely shiny effect. Fio.Biscuit is Fioranese’s authentic creative journey into the contemporary world, a trendy collection that, thanks to the colours and formats, will furnish our environments in an elegant and unique way, creating truly unexpected design effects.

Take inspiration from the settings inspired by design, and Merry Christmas to everybody!
