It’s that time of the year again – Our Annual Designers Gift Guide!
There are so many things to love about the festive season, but our favourite parts are definitely the family time, the opportunity to relax and enjoy the Queensland Summer and the gift giving! We know that coming up with a gift for everybody on your list is not always an easy feat! So with just under a month until Christmas we thought we would make things a little easier for you all.
Whether it’s for your partner, family, friends or studio secret santa – a gift for the home can never go astray. And when it comes to gifts that are designer approved we’ve got you covered!
Today our team is sharing their top picks for the gifts they’re hoping to find under the tree this year!

“In a clear borosilicate glass and jewelled with fun coloured bubbles of glass – this delicate handmade vase would make a lovely centrepiece. I always love having fresh florals at home over the festive period so this vase would look stunning filled with your favourite bouquet.” – Elissa, Manager & Creative Director

Constructed with a gloss ceramic body and a hand-blown opal borosilicate glass sphere, this beautiful lamp is created in Australia’s oldest pottery studio, Bendigo Pottery. We always appreciate Australian made pieces!” – Darren, CEO & Creative Director
