10 Great Gifts for People Who Take Their Home Design Seriously


We all have friends who are just a little, or even a lot, more on the ball when it comes to home decor. And let's be honest, these are often the ones whose invitations we covet the most. So for those design enthusiasts on your list – and to keep those invites coming year round – go the extra mile and spend the extra dollar to make a real contribution to their quality of life:

Depict Digital Art Frame, $899

Nothing short of an in-home museum, the Depict digital art frame allows you to display your own creations, or those from the brand's Art Club, with ultra-sharp 4K clarity onto a wood-framed 49” anti-glare digital canvas.

Blackhouse Andes Nolan Sling Chair, $690

This is a hand-built sling chair with style for miles, thanks to a handsomely weathered hardwood frame and a handwoven cotton Kilim fabric in a classic tribal pattern that is both contemporary and timeless.

Campo Woody Essential Oil Diffuser, $84

This easy-on-the-eyes ultrasonic diffuser uses no heat and no burning for a cleaner fragrance and air quality. The Mid-Century Modern vibe lets it blend in with any well-curated interior design scheme.

Forestrywool Mina Denim Blanket, $160

Woven from pure New Zealand wool, this blanket with a perfect pattern for adding visual interest and a hint of interesting travels is thick, warm, soft, and generously sized but also surprisingly light.

Greta De Parry Coleman Bar Cart, $2,000

Commissioned by bourbon maker Basil Hayden's, the top of this elevated bar cart is crafted from a solid piece of either walnut or bleached maple and measures nearly three and a half feet wide.

Eva Solo Ceramic and Oak Toolbox, $79

Whether you're looking to organize kitchen utensils, writing implements or the tools you need on a daily basis, this Scandinavian matte ceramic and oak caddy means you no longer have to hide them in a drawer.

Hermès Passe-Passe Change Tray, $300

Made of wool felt in the iconic brand's signature orange with bridle leather accents, this is the perfect desk or table-top repository for your EDC items, keeping them tidy and looking their best.

Best Made Co. Sliding Match Safe, $32

Made of steel with a solid brass knurled knob, this match safe is good-looking enough to be kept outside the kitchen drawer. Fill with strike-anywhere matches and a mundane task is suddenly a pleasure.

Pillbox Painted Baseball Bat, $229

This hand-painted baseball bat can, of course, be used on the field, but it's also a work of art, hand-crafted in the USA.

Shinola Runwell Clock, $450

A clock used to be an essential item of home decor, and having one on display still upgrades any room, especially when it's a Shinola number based on the brand's well-designed Runwell timepiece.
