Globe holiday gift guide: What to buy for the Decoration and Layout  obsessed


Bright light

Resembling lane dividers in a swimming pool or a period of fishing buoys, British designer Sebastian Herkner’s LED lamp includes a marble base (in either Marron Emperador or Nero Marquina), powder coated steel and opaline glass. It is a slick pick for the light collector on yournbsp;listing.

2. Shape up

Art should never be chosen for decoration purposes, but it is difficult not to imagine outfitting a creative living space by building on the bold forms and watery hues of Jessica Groome’s acrylic on paper work, Sharp. The Vancouver-born artist exhibits from Erin Stump Projects innbsp;Toronto.

3. Cushy job

If there’s one trend that has dominated the decoration world this season (well, besides millennial pink) it is the mash-up of textures in fabrics, rugs and macrame-style tapestries. This pillow, by Brooklyn-based Minna, downsizes the aesthetic so it is easier to work into any designnbsp;plot.

4. Paper cuts

Artist Gianpaolo Pagni interprets signature Hermès motifs including horses and chains into a string of 36 paper placemats. Use the 10-by-16-inch sheets to liven up a holiday dinner table, fold them to create brightly colored origami ornaments or glue them up in a powder room to make a patchwork featurenbsp;wall.

5. Hot pot

The ceramic confections made by Julie Moon frequently resemble surrealist floral arangements and sculptural blobs. Her pieces to get a collaboration with boho merchant Anthropologie are somewhat more straightforward, highlighting unique colour combos over odd forms. The partnership goes into the holiday season with a collection of geometric decorations in both eye-poppingnbsp;hues.
