Holiday Gifting from Inform: Staff Picks

Allison's picks.  
No. 1 is  the Aalto Vase, especially for Tulips. I love how flowers almost lay in this vase, not tight and perpendicular, there's something more relaxed and natural with this vase.
8" white Aalto Vase $185. 

 Ding dong, Droog's Bottoms Up door bell has been a favourite since we first showed it 14 years ago.  Its whimsy endeared it to me right off, and 14 years later I love it still.  
I smile every time I hear the wine glasses chime.
Droog Bottoms Up $285.

Paul Smith's limited edition Angelpoise Type 75, the iconic British table light is a newer favourite.  Only 2500 produced world wide, 130 for the North American market, this is a must have, and at $220 its a great price, especially considering Paul Smith socks go for $30 a pair.
Paul Smith classic Anglepoise Type 75, $220.
John Pawson, times 2.  the Ebony wood salad servers are elegantly minimal, pair perfectly with his salad bowl, both from When Objects Work; these two pieces are minimal perfection at its best.
John Pawson Salad tongs oiled ebony wood $160.

John Pawson Salad bowl stoneware off white $170.
