If you are in your thirties like me, you know that summer season also means wedding season. If you are short of ideas for the perfect wedding gifts and the bride and groom love design, I have prepared a selection of gift ideas for you. I know the wedding season begins in May and I get a bit late … but since I still have two weddings to attend by September, I think I’m still in time!
A super classic wedding gift are dinnerware sets, so if you want to respect the traditions but be more original you can choose something ironic from the italian brand Seletti or a classic of design like the dishes from Design Letters (my favorite).
1 – Wall plates – Fornasetti 4 – Siirtolapuutarha – Marimekko
2 -Hybrid collection – Seletti 5 – Jellie Family – Kartell
3 -Arne Jacobsen porcelain plates AZ – Design Letters 6 – Palazzo Borghese Seletti
Another idea I can recommend is an iconic lamp. If your friends love design, you can not go wrong with an a classic peace from Flos or Kartell for example. I suggest to choose a table lamp, it is a safer choice because they can easily fit in any type of home or with any style. Or if you are feeling super romantic, you can just go with the Love lamp or neon from Seletti!
1 – Bourgie trasparente – Kartell (Ferruccio Laviani) 5 -Neon art – Seletti
2 – Lampadina – Flos (Achille Castiglioni) 6 – Eclisse – Artemide (Vico Magistretti)
3 – Lighting Box – Seletti 7 – Nessino – Artemide (Giancarlo Mattioli)
4 – Parentesi – Flos (Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzu)
If you’re still in doubt, choose an iconic design piece like the Alessi coffee maker or Kartell bedside table … or the Eames bird from Vitra, a real obsession for most of the design lovers! Otherwise, you cannot go wrong with a super classic and chic white linen bed sheet set.
