Holiday Gift Guide: For the Cross Lover

Issue 50 · Saint Lucia · December 13, 2012

What is it about the enduring image of the cross that makes it so eminently appealing? Here are four cross bearing gifts to give (and to receive).

Pia Wallen Birch Cross Tray

Above: Swedish designer Pia Wallen works in felt and has unwittingly become the queen of the cross design. (When we posted on her Crux Blanket two years ago, both Julie and I, unbeknownst to each other, bought one on the spot.) This year we're eyeing this Cross Tray (as well as the Pot Mat Set). The birch plywood tray is available for €39.50 from Nordic New.

Above: Jonathan Adler Cross Pillow in gray and black. The wool pillow also comes in a selection of color combinations; $98 from Jonathan Adler.
