There’s an old Scottish saying: “Good things come in small packages.” We give that a wholehearted “aye.” Scotland’s Fair Isle, for example—the source of traditional Scottish knitting—is just three miles long and home to only 70 souls. But because of that speck in the sparkling waves, holiday nights in Scotland and the world over are spent curled up next to a fire in a “bonny” lambswool sweater. Impress the rest of your clan this season with these Fair Isle sweaters.
Forget flashing lights and plastic reindeer. ’Tis the season for more natural decorations. Deck your halls with real boughs of holly. And trim the tree with ribbons of fabric, wooden beads and tin bells. Turn the Grinch greener—from jealousy. And have a graceful Christmas, courtesy of the décor in this collection.
A successful Christmas party is the apotheosis of every host's year-long social calendar. Sparkle, shine, a heaping dose of tinsel-strewn nostalgia, and plenty of punch on the bowl - there is a distinct recipe for this type of fun. These are a few of my favorite things for my very own holiday celebration, sure to brighten up the yule - from Dorothy Thorpe glassware amidst frosted pine berries, to tufted furniture and the perfect caroling mix. And don't forget - it's not a party until a few ornaments get broken!
The party is dimly lit. As a woman enters, a flash of silver picks up every candle in the room. Every eye follows her, every ear hangs on her words. She’s graceful, confident, and her metallic jewelry complements her steely gaze. Adds luster to her sparkling conversation. In the accessories department, it’s easy to go for gold—but a subtle silvery shine always makes a splash. Peruse today’s sterling collection, and celebrate the enduring mettle of the metallic.
Headphones on. Volume cranked up to eleven. More than just feeling the music, you can practically see electric guitars flash, as teased-hair rockers in spandex grind out the hits. Face it. Everyone needs a little heavy metal energy in their life, even if it’s just a band T-shirt or a studded belt—or the full-on leather-and-chains look. Get thunderstruck by this collection of heavy metal accessories.
“Less is more!” The credo of the abstract artist. From simple lines and squares, they create works as vivid and arresting as any portrait or landscape. Bold shapes and colors are drawn out into masterpieces of minimalism. And now, books about these painters have become objects of beauty in their own right. So shape up your shelves. Line them with a few—but not too many—volumes from this collection on masters of the abstract.
Chocolate, cheese and multi-faceted knives. Switzerland offers a bounty of goods—and good deeds: the Red Cross was born here. But in the winter, one Swiss product stands out: the chalet. Rustic. Cozy. Snug. Home to fireplaces, mountain views and cuckoo clocks. And chalet style has spread far beyond the Alps, to anywhere where ski slopes, winter vacationers and wilderness abound. Import some Alpine style of your own with the modernist, mountain-friendly furniture and wares in this collection.
Think modern skiing gives you cold feet? Try plunging down a slope on two straight planks—without a helmet. Sound crazy? Maybe. But the powder hounds of the past had a certain old-school cool. Not even freezing chairlifts that crawled slowly up the mountain could shake their dedication. Now, years later, their retro designs are still looking chill. Enjoy an icy blast from the past with this collection of vintage downhill gear.
