AM Christmas Gift Guide

Tessa Jones in Events — 10.12.2019

It's the most wonderful time of the year! But finding the perfect presents to go around the tree can often prove a challenge. In the spirit of the season, we've put together a guide to gifting to help you choose something special for everyone on your Christmas list…

The Renovator

If you know someone who's spent the year surrounded by building plans and paint charts why not gift them something special for their new home. The Brindisi x Sophie Paterson cushion collection is full of neutral tones and textures to compliment any interiors scheme; we particularly love the luxurious feel of Vieste Bone/Alezio or Monte Storm. For a more cool and contemporary taste, the ikat style designs of Java and Kambera have been finished off with smooth velvet piping. Equally some extra special essentials can help to make a house a home. The Ida side table with its agate top is stunningly elegant yet practical, while a simple and smart table lamp such as Cole can be used in any room throughout the home.

The Nature Lover

This person tends to feel more at peace outside in their garden than indoors. Their style is defined by the intricate tones and patterns of the natural world, so a print such as Nature's Spiral would be an apt choice. Or make staying inside during the winter months more bearable with some new cushions from our Hindu Kush range such as Narikala Denim or Indus Multi, inspired by the landscape and fauna of the mountain range of the same name. Similarly, designs such as Kingdom or Maya are guaranteed to please with their displays of exotic animals and plants.

The Host

This person looks for any occasion to celebrate. Their Christmas and New Year's Eve parties are legendary, and they're an expert at keeping everyone's glasses full. Show your gratitude by gifting them one of our new shagreen accessories; Lexi looks elegant placed on a coffee or side table, storing a set of coasters that can be easily spread out at an impromptu gathering. Likewise Cosima and Porto are perfect for displaying canapes or drinks, the faux shagreen and gold handles adding the perfect touch of luxury. For a more statement item, Cici is a stylish essential for any party host. This Art Deco style bar trolley has been finished in distressed brass with white marble shelves.

The Maximalist

Bold colours, layered textures and contrasting prints are the markers of this person's eccentric style. Don't be afraid to gift something unconventional, compliment their taste with a playful, light-up piece from our Tutti Frutti collection, such as Rocket or Roly Poly. Or one of our Pick n' Mix stools inspired by everyone's favourite childhood treat.

The Adventurer

For a person who lives for exploration, delight them with our atmospheric artworks depicting dreamlike landscapes of faraway places such as After the Rain or Head in the Clouds. Or go for one of our petrified logs or smaller petrified sculptures, which are naturally formed over millions of years. To find a truly distinctive piece for the adventurer in your life, our Walton Street showroom is full of rare objects collected during our founder's travels.

The Curator

No wall in this person's home is complete without artwork, add to their collection with a bright and cheerful piece such as Summer Butterfly Migration or the dream like Clouds. If their tastes lean more towards the traditional, delight them with a smart monochrome photograph such as Sail Away or an oil painting inspired by the old masters like Vanitas.
