Living in NYC, the KCD team has seen a ton of people leave the city in search of a bigger, quieter home. We don't quite blame them- especially after the year we've all had! Today we wanted to show a few of our top choices for places to find great housewarming gifts to give to those friends who have undergone a change of scenery. Take a look!
Kneeland Co. Rarities: Unique and Vintage Housewarming Gifts
When you're trying to shop for someone who already has everything, I always recommend taking a look at Kneeland Co Rarities. In their own words, "Thoughtfully sourced from artists, artisans, and dealers, each product contains a story told through process and history. Ceramics, vintage & contemporary art, found objects, and textiles make up a carefully edited selection of treasures for life and home." From unique coffee cups, vintage prints, and even eclectic plaster cast art- you're sure to find something one of a kind and truly exceptional here.
Gregory Parkinson- Colorful Block Printed Textile Housewarming Gifts
If you know us, we love the color. So naturally, Gregory Parkinson's gorgeous textiles gravitate towards us! These stunning napkins and tablecloths are all hand woven and block printed with beautiful colors and patterns in all different styles. There are so many to choose from, so you're sure to find something for everyone. Plus, the quality is impeccable. A must-have for any dining room!
Jonny Ribiero- Eclectic Art and Objects
For the art enthusiast, you must take a look at Jonny Ribiero's collection. Brooklyn based, Jonny's style is truly unique, and you're guaranteed to find the most exciting and one of a kind art in his shop. In his own words, "Objects can enrich our lives and become part of our journey. We give them new meaning by preserving and contextualizing them in our own world. The way light hits an object over time reveals new interpretations. Form and origin are central tenets to my practice. I seek out things that have a soul expressed in line, texture, and surface. We are custodians of these relics. I hope to pass them on to you as their next caretaker."
Tamam- Globally Sourced Housewarming Gifts
Tamam is a staple here at KCD. A local New York boutique, Tamam has treasures from all over the world in an array of colorful and intricate patterns and textures. From pillows to teapots, everything is handcrafted and sourced with such intention and is absolutely stunning. There's a huge selection of items- but we personally love the pillows and their collection of vintage dishes.
John Derian- Whimsical Housewarming Gifts
Last but certainly not least, we have John Derian. Between the handcrafted decoupage line to the collection of gorgeous antique decor- there are just so many treasures from this incredible brand. Many of the pieces are handmade to order in their New York studio, and you can tell the quality from the second you get your hands on their pieces. All of the designs feature a spirit of whimsy yet are so timeless. They will make for the perfect gift for anyone on your list.
If you're anything like us, you've probably got a few of these items on your own wishlist! If you need any help with styling them, make sure to check out our blog here. Thanks for tuning in, and we'll see you next week!
