This Christmas may feel a little different this year, but make it one to remember with an invitingly festive home using soft ambient lighting, tactile furnishings, and natural materials to create a warm welcome no matter how small your guest list. Add shimmering glass baubles paired with sustainable mango wood decorations and warm flecks of antique brass for a festive finishing touch.
A Warm Welcome
Start in the hallway, and create an inviting space with the glow of natural lighting. Our Lumbu Lamp has a warm brass finish enhancing its tactile pattern, creating an understated yet stylish appearance, perfect for an entrance hall. Set the scene and flank the hallway with our sustainable mango wood Idha lanterns to welcome you into your home with the gentle flicker of candlelight.
Enhance your living space by adding soft pools of light creating an inviting setting for a cold Winter’s day. Our curated selection of natural lighting includes our bestselling Baba table lamp, handblown using recycled glass. Move lamps to new locations in your home for a seasonal refresh, lighting up dark corners for the longer evenings ahead. Our Kara Standing Lamp uses contemporary iron framework that contrasts with our natural Dia Jute Lampshade for a timeless and sophisticated statement lamp, perfect for an evening read in a comfy armchair.
Deck the Halls
Pair the shimmering surfaces of brushed silver and antique brass with the natural textures of mango wood for a soft natural finish. Adorn surfaces with recycled glass decorations, like our Ekiti garland, which can be hung beautifully on stairways and mantelpieces where it catches the light and glistens against a natural backdrop. Weave sprigs of eucalyptus for a delicate display that exudes natural charm and sophistication.
Set the Table
Style your own festive feast no matter how many people are joining you at the table this year. Indulge in striking glassware, eye-catching table decorations and tactile ceramics. Our varied collection of antique brass lanterns and t-lights marry beautifully with the gold and brass hues of our elegant Jahi and Mbata candlesticks, napkins rings and brass table accessories, adding a sense of celebration and elegance.
Natural materials like mango wood and glass provide an elegant neutral backdrop for your festive displays. Inject bold colours with our exquisite recycled glass Dew Drop Baubles, with their tactile glistening surface that reflects tree lights for a dazzling finish resembling a deliciously tempting chocolate box filled with jewel-like colours.
Create a space to unwind as well as celebrate the season in. Our handcrafted Abe armchairs use sustainable mango wood for a solid frame that uses natural hemp and linen to create a wonderfully tactile chair that’s designed for long, dark evenings in front of the fire with good company. Put your feet up with our mango wood footstools, designed to pair with our Abe and Ebu armchairs, and available in three colours, so you can cosy-up and hunker down this Winter. Layer-up with our tactile soft furnishings, like our Kadin throw, skilfully made on traditional handlooms. The soft waffle weave is an easy way to add colour and warmth to a living room.
With added layers over the festive season, use baskets woven with natural materials as stylish storage for the extra cushions and throws needed for the colder months. Our Braided Hemp Storage Basket uses eco-friendly hemp, where each basket is hand crafted on age old looms producing a soft braided weave that makes for a beautiful tactile addition to your living room.
Our curated selection of eco-friendly gifts includes elegant fair trade jewellery, traditional mango wood board games and luxurious leather accessories. Explore our gift guide and take time to enjoy the unique elements of our handcrafted gift ideas, with something for everyone on your list this Christmas.
Take time for yourself and make the most out of the festive season. Take stock and enjoy the small things by preparing in advance, leaving you time to soak up the joy in the season of giving. Get creative with gift wrapping and find alternatives to wrapping paper and tape with eco-friendly alternatives. Using scraps of fabric and natural material wrapped in string, and foraging for small sprigs of holly or pine tree, add a festive touch that shows thought and care.
