Staff Picks: What’s On Our Christmas Wish List
Here are the must-haves that topped our personal holiday wish lists this year (family and friends take note!).
Two things inform my clothing choices: living on the rainy West Coast, and travelling frequently. Both are satisfied in this waterproof overcoat by Arc’Teryx Veilance ($695), the new fashion arm of the famed North Vancouver-based outfitter. Its minimalist style, complete waterproofness and lightweight design put it at the top of my Christmas list. harryrosen.com—Neal McLennan, Food and Travel Editor
This graphic Sun and Rain print ($200) from Vancouver artists KT and Paul, featuring downpours, mountains and condos aplenty, is the perfect portrait of my hometown (that would just so happen to fit perfectly into my gallery wall). ktandpaul.com—Stacey McLachlan, Associate Editor
I interviewed a decorator recently who told me baskets hide a multitude of sins. I love this idea and would happily cram blankets and my incomplete knitting projects into this cute copper Norm Wire bin (from $65) whenever company drops by. espacedonline.com—Julia Dilworth, Staff Writer
I love, love, love these whimsical Alice in Wonderland-inspired Rabbit in Wonderland candlesticks ($110), cast from ephemera found at U.K. antique markets. I’ll take two, please. nineteenten.ca —Jenny Reed, Assistant Art Director
I’m lusting for the BeoPlay A6 (price on request), the newest release from Bang and Olufsen. I love the organic design and how it works itself seamlessly into any interior. Plus, you can control your listening through the BeoMusic app—and the grey tweed finish isn’t bad, either. bang-olufsen.com; apple.com—Paul Roelofs, Art Director
I love any excuse to put together a cheeseboard (hello, Fourme d’Ambert—your time on my table has come), and the new Ray board ($175) from Geoffrey Lilge’s On Our Table charcuterie board line provides the perfect excuse. (That and, you know, the holidays.) providehome.com—Anicka Quin, Editor-in-Chief
