Elite Traveler brings you a selection of truly special gifts that could also be considered functional pieces of art for the design lover in your life.
A remarkable drinks cabinet that would not look out of place during cocktail hour at Great Gatsby’s mansion. In the C(Art), March and White have created one of the most beautiful, exclusive and seductive bars available in the world today.
Handcrafted in France out of re-polished crystal, this fine vase has been made in celebration of Lalique’s 130th anniversary. The design of starlings in flight represents spring, happiness and freedom.
The word ‘iconic’ is thrown around far too often in this modern day, but to describe the Wurlitzer 1015 Vinyl Jukebox as anything other would be a disservice. This 1940s work of art has been painstakingly restored to its former glory with the addition of a few modern luxuries.
This elegant champagne cooler is cast out of a dazzlingly clear crystal, which is further enhance by either a gold or silver-plated handle. It acts as the perfect accompaniment to champagne of the highest distinction.
Bring a touch of class to your book shelf with these sparkling crystal bookends dipped in 18k gold. Although they have a functional purpose, they are also beautiful enough to be used as standalone sculptures.
For some, it would not be the holiday season without a little blue box. For something a bit different from Tiffany & Co, this silver ball of yarn is a tribute to the company’s legacy of creating some of the finest silver goods in the world.
This stunning bookshelf is made from solid canaletta wood with shelves in smoked tempered glass. It has been designed to work as either a bookshelf or a room divider, depending on your taste.
This three-foot wooden Nutcracker figure has been carved, assembled and painted by hand while the hair and beard are made from rabbit skins. It would serve as the perfect centrepiece among holiday decorations and, fittingly, it also cracks walnuts between its teeth.
