Shopping for a mother with an eye for interior design? David Ho picks out a few pieces we think could make wonderful additions to any home
Vitra heart cone chair from Lane Crawford
Show your love for the queen of your heart with the Vitra heart cone chair. Despite its futuristic design, this chair (HK$28,800) was actually launched in 1958. When placed in a shop window in New York, it was causing traffic issues with the crowds it attracted that the police had to order it to be removed. You can even test it out now at Lane Crawford’s Hundred exhibition, its Beef like exhibition of chairs at Pacific Place from now till May 21.
Terracotta vases from Tree
The terracotta vases available at Tree are a perfect home decor gift with practical value, especially if you plan on gifting mum some blooms from Hong Kong’s luxury florists. Crafted in the Philippines, these vases start from just HK$95 and each piece features hand-carved floral motifs that lend plenty of textural interest. Let her style it as a decorative piece in its own right, or as a base to hold her Mother’s Day blooms.
John Derian Decoupage plate from Lane Crawford
Here’s a novel way to gift Mother’s Day flowers. Handcrafted in his studio in New York, this plate (HK$600) from John Derian’s Decoupage collection shows a glorious bouquet in charmingly eccentric print style. His work is prized by collectors around the world. The plate was crafted an ode to the beauty from the natural world, but can now be a dedication of your love for mum. Available at Lane Crawford.
Wall mirror from Sauvereign
French interior and product designer Studio Putman collaborates with luxury house Sauvereign for this wall mirror. It is gilded in gold leaf and applied via verre églomisé, a process of applying both a design and gilding onto the rear face of glass to produce a mirror finish. The complex frame, weighing 40kg, is composed of more than two hundred different brass-made pieces and details to present gold in various textures and forms.
Vertuo Pop coffee machine from Nespresso
If mama needs her coffee, make sure she can have it anytime in the comfort of her own home. The Vertuo Pop is Nespresso’s most compact and affordable (HK$1,088) Vertuo machine to date. These stylish machines also add a nice splash of colour to any room, with six shades for you to pick from.
From now till June 7, 2023, every purchase of the machine comes with a HK$100 credit for your next coffee or accessories order. Customers get an additional special price of HK$500 (valued at HK$850) on the Aeroccino 3 milk frother if they get Nespresso’s new machine.
