Andrew Tanner Design
I thought I would start complementing Grace's Gift Guide with a few picks of my own. In addition to some of the products published last week with/without interview (Rikke Jakobsen Fine Bone China, Presse-Citron, Vernissage...and black+blum), I will post some products here this week in addition to interviews which are good gifts. They should mostly be near the $130/Euro 100 range or less for a single item, but you should check with their websites/retailers for certainty.
I am always on the look out for great serving dishes and Andrew Tanner's Flock range fits the bill. Andrew, who launched his consultancy in 2002, is based in Brighton (UK). He was awarded the National Home Awards Young Designer of the Year and Decorative Product of the Year Awards in 2005. His Flock range, inspired by embossed wallpaper, which he exhibited at 100% Design this year, blends traditional imagery with contemporary form. He has designed products for Cole and Son and Crabtree and Evelyn, to name a few. But Andrew isn't just a winner for bone china tableware, his wall tiles are also on the mark. Visit Andrew's website to see his entire range and for stockists.
