The last of our lovely artists to share their Christmas wishes is Daniel Frost, founder of the wonderful world of Frostville. His wish list features some jazzy long johns, a clever bookshelf design by Amy Hunting and, perhaps the most festive item of our whole wish list blog series, a Christmas tree decoration with a difference…
The John Classic by Norse Projects
Long johns are ace and a must at this time of the year if you work in a freezing cold office, studio or flat. There’s nothing better than a pair of cosy johns, but to own a pair as jazzy as this would be a real treat. They are made by that amazing brand Norse projects, who if you don’t know by now, have a peek (you’ll like it!!).
Blockshelf by Amy Hunting
Amy is a good friend of mine and a very talented designer. Her work is so beautiful, simple and fun. I wish I could have my whole flat decked out in her furniture. But for the purpose of this list I think I will go with the Blockshelf, not only because I need one for my ever growing collection of books and other objects, but I love the simplicity, playfulness and resourcefulness of this piece.
Green Centipede by Christel Dauwe
On a visit to Antwerp recently I came across this amazing shop called Christel Dauwe that only sold glass blown ornaments. The shop was amazing and felt so magical, it’s really worth a visit if you’re there. I just wanted to buy everything in it. The thing I really love the most is the craftsmanship that has gone into each design (which is something that is rare these days) and I also love how mad some of the characters look. It was hard to pick one design out of them all but I think I would go for this cute and mad little Green Centipede.
And that brings to a close our Christmas wish list blog series! We hope you enjoyed it and found lots of ideas for your own present purchases. Have a Merry Christmas and tip top New Year! See you in 2013.
