We’re feeling the festive spirit here at the studio and talk has turned to present ideas for friends and family. Have you started your festive shopping yet? Get inspired with our gift ideas…
We’re pleased to be offering this super stylish white ‘Scandiphone’ telephone. It is a design classic, based on the original Ericofon, made by L M Ericsson of Sweden way back in the 1950s. The original design brief was to make the phone small, lightweight, and easy to use. The result was a telephone that had never been seen before and a design that revolutionised telephone development.
The modern version has kept the stylish characteristics of it’s predecessor but has been updated for the 21st Century. The phone features push button dialing, redial, ringer volume on/off and a cool nostalgic ringtone.
Dimensions: (w) 98mm x (h) 212mm x (d) 110mm
The Orla Kiely brand celebrates and shares the Irish designer’s beautiful, simple style. Her creations are inspired by retro graphic repeat patterns, making for a very strong and recognisable style.
From a small collection of bags and accessories the range has grown to include a complete ready-to-wear collection, homeware, travel, stationery and garden accessories.
These gorgeous enamel plant pots feature Orla’s striped petal print and are available in 3 different sizes. They come with matching saucers so you can use them inside or out!
Another favourite of ours is the Striped Petal Flask. This stylish 500ml stainless steel flask will keep your beverages hot whilst you get stuck into the gardening or when out for a brisk walk. Form and function all rolled into one!
