10 Last Minute Xmas Presents

If you are a last minute person like me, who realised just now that Christmas is just a couple of days away, worries not, I have put together a list of last-minute presents idea for design lovers like me.

Living in a big city like London is great, but shopping in the city centre can be a bit overwhelming (especially when you’re are 9 months preggy) so my solution is always to look at online sites…and even if they’ll arrive a bit late, I’m sure that who’ll receive will appreciate it.

So here we are here’s my 10 selection from LOVEtheSIGN (and a special discount code included below…).

The Apartment by The Line | NYC

Last week I was in NY for a work trip and as soon as I got a few hours free on the weekend, I visited this amazing concept store in Soho.

While the entrance could be a bit intimidating (the lift from the road is a bit like: ‘Where the hell am I going?’), once you get at the 3rd floor you’re catapulted into the most beautiful light-filled open-air apartment in the heart of SoHo.

Highlights from Milan Design Week 2017

Highlights from Milan Design Week 2017

This past design week in Italy it’s been sooo nice. I’ve never seen Milan that busy !!!! Since I spent just two days there I decided to concentrate on two areas: Brera (my overall favourite) and Tortona, I regret I didn’t visit the Ventura – Lambrate since I saw so many nice things on Instagram.

Anyway here’s my Top Ten:

1/ INTERNO ITALIANO 

Hidden in a little corner of Brera I discover this brand inspired by the Italian way of living and created by Giulio Iacchetti. Internoitaliano objects “enjoy a special status: they are happy objects, the fruit of a 50/50 joint effort between the designer who designed them and the craftsman who lovingly made them,” I think you can really tell by the look of them !!


2/GIOVELAB

GIOVELAB is a small but sparkling ceramic studio based in Trentino. They are inspired by simplicity and produce an unconventional table collection made of porcelain, stoneware and wood from their local land. I was absolutely in love with those little spoons and the all ceramic collections (the packaging is also very cute! Perfect for a nice present). You can order from their online shop.
