Dedicated to Design… If there is any season that lends itself perfectly for decoration, it is Christmas time. Ever changing and still kind of similar each year, Christmas is a feast for style and design. That is why we have discovered beautiful Christmassy items and potential presents. See below to find inspiration for your Christmas home. BY: THOMAS SCHROERS
1. When the presents are lying under the tree, candles are lit and the right music is playing, all you need is a comfortable place to enjoy the evening, especially Christmas Eve. Tom Tailor designs a Nordic Chic Sofa, which is just that. With some retro details, this sofa’s charisma is irresistible. £1,250. www.tom-tailor.de 2. Since 2014, the porcelain manufacturer KAHLA has had its own collection of étagères. Designed in clear forms and with beautiful metal stands, the collection integrates perfectly into your Christmas time, where all kinds of treats can be served on more than one level. KAHLA étagères are available in all kinds of shapes, starting at £28. www.kahla-porzellanshop.de 3. This candle holder’s romantic flair makes it the perfect item to embellish your winter living room. Manufactured out of glass and coloured in an antic red-gold, it holds both block and rod candles. Ferrum Living creates the ‘Kirkenes’ in one size only, but offers others that complement it. £10. www.ferrum-living.de 4. This candle holder is a real highlight. Originally developed in the 1960s by Werner Stoff, it offers flexibility as it can be individually connected, combined and stacked. The material is metal and coloured in an elegant gold, making it a perfect accessory for Christmas and winter as such. £30. www.desiary.de
5. A deer is probably the most iconic animal in relation to Christmas. Santa needs to go to many places on his sleigh and this clock helps him with time management. With an elegant, straightforward design out of dark walnut and exceptional quality, it will fit into any room. £40. www.geschenkidee.de
