All I Want For Christmas is…

Rua Ipanema by Man of Parts

“All I want for Christmas… is the amazing Rua Ipanema armchair. I can sit in this chair and swivel between the TV and looking at the Christmas tree. Its curves softens the otherwise big heft of this chair and makes it both very generous as well as beautiful. A true functional sculpture!”

Staffan Tollgård
Founder and Creative Director

Yori by de Castelli

“There are some pieces that you never stop coveting. For me, one of these is the Yoroi sideboard from de Castelli. Whether I think about the overlapping tiles of the Samurai’s war dress (that’s what the name means), or the glimmering gleam of fish scales, or the interplay of the different shades of metal that you can specify … or the gentle curves … or the hidden drawers – all of it makes me feel happy. It had me at Yoroi. This is the sideboard for me, not just for Christmas, but for life.”

Grace by Schönbuch

“This bar trolley is a perfect balance between form and function. A Sebastian Herkner design has the feel of a modern classic. I am drawn to it for its timeless design but love it because the top is back painted glass which makes it ultimately practical. Also it has sides which keep everything in its place. I would have this near my large green leather chair near the fire so that I could have an after-dinner drink over the holiday break.”

48 Sofa Bench by Finn Juhl

“All I want for Christmas is the 48 sofa bench! A beautifully original design and so unique with every inch considered; carved and sculpted with individual details. Steeped in history, from the House of Finn Juhl brand to the 48 Sofa Bench itself, it’s a notable conversation piece to have in any room. Wherever it’s going in my house, it will make the space special.”

Icosofà by Ceccotti Collezioni

“If by some delightful miracle Santa Baby were to slip sofa under my tree – it would most certainly have to be the Ico Sofa from the Ceccotti Collezioni. It is modern and lusciously curvaceous but still exhibits elegant lines and restrained styling. It’s a classic piece that would work well in any number of settings and has all the elements of an enduring design. Comfortable and poised, a perfect place to reflect upon the dolce vita and imagine Sophia Loren gliding over to join you for a cocktail or two. I won’t tire of its beguiling shape – so Santa, when you read this, don’t forget I’ve been an awful good boy!”

Peter Phan
Ceccotti Showroom Manager

Catenary Barstool by Token NYC

“Each Catenary stool is lovingly made by Token’s dedicated artisan teams, and it shows. For me, it reflects the best of Brooklyn furniture craft, I just love the way that it marries the materials so precisely. Hard woods, strong metals and thick leather hides have combined to create an original contemporary design that will last a lifetime.”

Max Pilbeam
Contracts Director

Circle Dining Chair by Overgaard & Dyrman

“I like the geometry behind the design: the Circle Chair demonstrates the blend of mathematics and art that gives pleasure to the eye. The back of the armchair reminds me of a pair of compasses used to draw a circle. Overgaard & Dyrman is a new addition to our portfolio and will soon be part of our display as well, which is very exciting for all of us at Tollgard.”

Giorgi Liveson
Studio Manager & Head of Operations

Cinema Chandelier by RBW

“I love RBW lighting for their innovative designs: their chandeliers add an extraordinary touch to virtually any design scheme. This particular piece has been on my wish-list ever since I first saw it at our Pimlico Showroom. It’s extra-charming in person due to its grand scale! Santa would be the first to know about it if I had the ceiling height for it!”

Makarem Kwsai
Interior Designer

Eros by Agapecasa

“From Agapecasa with love, designed by Angelo Mangiarotti in 1970. A timeless, minimal and clever product that plays with form, materiality and balance to create a true design icon — a masterpiece — that suits every context. I can see Eros as the perfect addition to my living room, close to the sofa or next to the armchair — but if you want to be more adventurous – use it as your bedside table. You won’t be disappointed. I always looked at Agapecasa as a reference, a brand with a collection of timeless, smart and well-designed products – coming from the past but so contemporary nowadays.”
