How to style your home this Christmas

 December 1st, 2023

With Christmas almost upon us, we're sharing ideas on how to transform your home into a timeless festive space filled with warm and welcoming touches. Our artisan-crafted pieces are - as always - handcrafted using natural, recycled and reclaimed materials, and made with care to last for generations to come. Let our pieces inspire your creation of an uplifting and abundant celebration of another year lived well.

The arrival of the festive season lets us reflect on what celebration means to us. It's a time to gather our nearest and dearest around us for generous feasts, roaring fires and simple schemes combining classic pieces with natural foliage and found objects.

Below, you'll find everything you need to create a beautiful festive home. From striking table settings to cosy living spaces, beautifully dressed fireplaces, and elegant decorative accessories. We hope this guide inspires you to create a warm and welcoming space to relax and unwind as you celebrate the joys of the season.

A Warm Welcome

Bring the festive season into the heart of your home and dress the mantle in festive foliage and a few well-chosen decorations in rich tones and shimmering antique.

Invite warmth into your home with the flicker of candlelight. Our Mbata candlesticks pair beautifully with our new collection of hand poured soy wax candles. We also love to layer our velvet-cotton stockings for an extra special touch.

Your home should be space for unwinding as well as celebrating the season, and nothing is more inviting than the prospect of evenings spent curled up by the fireside. Our handcrafted Abe Armchair is a timeless classic with a twist, and the deconstructed back and sides reveals a natural mango wood frame and hemp lining. The front of each chair is upholstered in a tactile and calm stone or charcoal coloured linen. These beautifully crafted pieces will add a touch of elegance to your festive setting.

Nothing says comfort like layers of soft and luxurious textiles. Drape your sofa with sumptuous velvets and natural linens to add colour and warmth to your living room. Our Moss Stitch Cotton Throws are the perfect remedy to dark winter evenings. Each of these soft and versatile furnishings are skilfully made on traditional handlooms using natural cotton.

A Joyful Home

Style a festive living space that works in harmony with your year-round decor. Start by choosing a scheme to decorate your tree with, from simple pared back objects to hang sparingly, or more opulent pieces in antique finishes and rich hues, and pair textiles in neutral tones with more opulent pieces, such as our Lumbu lamp in antique brass for an elegant touch.

When it comes to decorating the tree, add interest by choosing shimmering glass baubles in unique shapes and finishes.

This year, we bring you three thoughtful collections: Nostalgia for a joyful and generous take on a traditional Christmas with jewel-like tones and classic shapes; Opluence for dramatic and elegant decorations with thoughtful finishing touches; and Found for our wild and wonderful homage to nature, taking inspiration from the simple beauty of the world around us. For the finishing touch, our Bakara star tree topper crowns the Christmas tree.

"As always, each piece in our Christmas collection is designed with the greatest care, making sure to use natural, recycled or reclaimed materials for a unique finish that brings both character and charm to the festive season."

Christmas drinks that dazzle and delight

Sophistication abounds with our selection of stunning serveware and shimmering glassware in a myriad of jewel tones and unique shapes inspired by an era of exquisite entertaining. Set the scene for festive entertaining with plenty of sparkle, creating the perfect backdrop for intimate soirees and decadent cocktail parties.

Style elegant champagne glasses in mesmerising hues with curvaceous gin glasses, a classic champagne bucket and drinks accessories to set the scene.

We particularly love our Anara collection, which features  selection of timeless, hand etched designs crafted from hand blown glass, including a decanter,  wine glasses and more.

A Classic Christmas Table

Dressed for festive feasting, our timeless table setting exudes celebratory charm and effortless style. Artisan tableware provides the backdrop to the main event, while sophisticated wine glasses and recycled glass serveware bring tactility and understated elegance.

For a decadent tablescape, pair our Cali tableware collection with hand woven linen napkins and placemats with unique hand forged cutlery and our Santosa wine glasses. For the finishing touch, foraged foliage, brass lanterns, and Christmas decorations provide a festive flourish to delight your guests.
