Winter—and these days in particular—is a good time to gift a bit of cheerfulness—a reminder that design, and our spaces, needn’t always be so serious.
For gifts sure to bring joy to all, we like Areaware, which offers gifts and objects for home, work and play created in collaboration with independent designers. Every homeware piece is equal parts uplifting, the company says, and functional, intended to bring delight every time it’s used.
