Girard Wool & Cotton Throw Blanket - $229
Dimensions: 64" W 54" D
Materials: 82% wool, 18% cotton
Designer: Alexander Girard
The perfect gift to snuggle up with, this blanket tells quite the story. One of the leading figures of post-war American design, Alexander Girard, designed this richly hued throw blanket as part of an astounding 17,543-item brand identity system for Braniff International Airways in 1965. The Girard Throw is recreated today by Pendleton—whose blankets Girard avidly collected. We're confident that this blanket's neutral colors and soft feel will make itself at home, in any home. Having found its way into many homes over the years, the beloved throw will exceed your expectations. Don't believe us? Just read what this happy customer had to say on Design Within Reach. "This throw exceeded my highest expectations. I purchased the black and white version. The white squares on the throw are black on the other side, and vice versa. The throw is warm without smothering you like many synthetic throws. Also, the Herman Miller and Pendleton tags are silky and feel fantastic." You heard it here first. The Girard throw has a quality you can trust and will make anyone receiving it warm-at-heart.
Eames Hang-It-All - $229
Dimensions: 14.567" H 19.685" W 6.299" D
Materials: Steel rod frame with a powder-coated finish, painted solid maple balls
Weight Capacity: 50 lbs
Designer: Charles and Ray Eames
In the mid-1940s, Charles and Ray Eames began designing toys and furniture for children, including molded plywood animals, colorful building blocks, and whimsical masks. “We have to take pleasure seriously,” said Charles Eames, and the Hang-It-All (1953) is an example of this mantra. Made with a sturdy steel frame and solid wood balls, this design was created using the same technique for simultaneously welding wires that the Eameses developed for their low tables and wire chairs. They originally made the Hang-It-All for Tigrett Enterprises’ Playhouse Division, and Herman Miller reissued it in 1994. This is the authentic Hang-It-All by Herman Miller. Rest assured, the welcoming shape of each ball will be a safe place to hang even your most delicate of clothing. The Eames Hang-It-All is an iconic piece that works just about anywhere, for just about anything. As the name suggests, you can truly, hang it all. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.
HAY Sowden Travel Mug .5L - $38
Dimensions: 8.66" H
Materials: Stainless steel container, polypropylene lid

You can't go wrong with this beautifully designed mug from HAY. In 1981, George Sowden became one of the founders of the design collective Memphis Group. In decades since, he’s collaborated with a diverse collection of companies, including Alessi, Swatch, and Pyrex. For the Danish design company HAY, he created the Sowden Bottle (2020), consisting of an insulated stainless steel container with a polypropylene screw-on lid in playful contrasting hues. It keeps drinks hot for up to 12 hours and cold for up to 24 hours. This easy-to-use Travel Mug operates by a simple press down of the top to open and a press down to click closed. Give someone the gift of form and function this holiday season.
