The Sklar Furnishings Valentine’s Day Gift Guide
On February 14th, many of us will be exchanging gifts large and small with our partners. However, choosing something that’s just right can be a little anxiety inducing. From romantic love offerings to sexy barware, we’ll help you find the perfect gift for the person who stole your heart.
The Sklar showroom currently features impressively creative takes on anatomical hearts from the Italian ceramicists FOS (see the first image above). Each design in the In Alto i Cuori line is inspired by a quote from the Bible, a phrase from a well-known poem, or an Italian proverb. These biscuit porcelain ex votos are crafted and painted by hand.
Fos Ceramiche are also the creators of this unusual series of ceramic flowers in matching vases – sure to last much longer than a bouquet of roses! See the second image above for a visual of this beautiful accessory.
Poland’s family owned Borowski Studio creates colorful and humorous glass sculptures. The full collection includes a diverse range of subjects including animals and abstractions, but for a romantic gift their sweet human figures are a sure bet. We are especially taken with the King and Queen sculpture (see the third image above).
This amusing, whimsical Heart with Wings sculpture is by Nima Oberoi for Lunares (see the fourth image above). We like this piece so much that we donated one to the 2016 Real Men Wear Pink raffle, raising money for the Breast Cancer Foundation. Other romantic pieces by the same designer include A Higher Place and A Hole In The Heart.
The abstract First Kiss Maquette by sculptor Alexander Krivosheiw seems to express joy in each of its romantic curves and flourishes. Or, if bright and quirky is more their style, consider the Lips Sculpture in your choice of red, purple, pink, yellow and clear acrylic.
Kartell’s Mademoiselle Dining Chair, with its clear acrylic body, is available in several different upholstery fabric options. For a romantic gift that makes a real impact, consider the monochromatic love heart pattern.
The Grace K Purse in red is the perfect gift for the fashion-conscious woman in your life (see the fifth image above).
If your partner prefers home accessories to fashion accessories, we have an abundance of decor items that will enliven their space. These include the voluptuous Lady In White (sixth image above), Cherries (seventh image above), and a fun, multi-colored mid-century modern piece by Skol (eighth image above).
Finally, for the man or woman who loves to entertain, we have a selection of glamorous high-end bar glass by Zodax, including gleaming decanters and ice buckets in styles to suit any home bar (see the ninth image above).
