With only a week remaining before we all sound the Christmas bells, now it’s time for you to go out and do some gift shopping (though you can also get on the internet and ship things to your friends and family). Barcelona Designs offers you the chance to give someone an unforgettable present, one that will stay with them for many years.
Buying furniture as a gift can be daunting, after all, everyone has different tastes. But what better way to surprise your loved ones than with a physical representation of craftsmanship and care? Here are the 5 best furniture gift ideas for the holidays by Barcelona Designs:
This royal seat is bound to make someone happy this Christmas. A true-to-design rendition of the original Mies furniture, the quality leather upholstery and steel base are perfect even for a last-minute gift. The price is somewhat steep for a Christmas gift, but then again, that’s one of the setbacks you need to consider when gifting furniture.
- Mid-century Lounge chair and Ottoman
This one is a rendition of the iconic Eames Lounge chair with ottoman, which is a staple of mid-century modernist design. A lot of people secretly (or quite publicly) desire this item, so it would make for an extremely valuable Christmas gift. Just make sure the person who gets it has the ability to engage in some light assembly, though you can always help out and create a tender Christmas moment.
- Barcelona ottoman
Another great contender from the best-selling Barcelona collection of replicas. The ottoman is originally known as the “Barcelona stool,” but it can still be used as an ottoman if paired with the Barcelona chair or sofa. However, it is quite a comfortable, cozy and elegant seat on its own, and for this price you really can’t go wrong.
An excellent choice for somebody that already has it all (furniture wise). The Carrara marble base follows the original design’s specifications and weight, making it one of the most sought-after items. You need two or more people to lift it so, again, this is a great opportunity for some Christmas bonding.
- Tulip Table replica – round coffee table
If you’re going to purchase a table as a gift, your best shot lies on getting a coffee table. It should be small, easy to handle, low, and gorgeous. The Saarinen replica checks all of the above, turning this table into one of the best furniture options for under $1,000. Do not worry about stylings or taste: this table is style; this table is taste.
