100 Furniture Gift Ideas

From Abstract Puzzle Furniture to Cubic Couch Designs

— November 29, 2016 — Art & Design
New Years is a time for beginning anew, and making a change to ones furnishings with furniture gifts over the holidays is a material way to turn a new metaphorical page. Though furniture can provide stasis in one's home, it can also get stuffy and boring over time -- furniture gifts let people with an eye for home decor reinvent their spaces.

Depending on the person receiving the gift, there are plenty of different furnishing options. For someone who's concerned about both design and sustainability, a piece from WooJai Lee's PaperBricks collection might be appropriate; the furniture in PaperBricks is made entirely from recycled newspaper.

Other pieces are designed for their versatility in limited space, such as Stow Fitness' love seat that contains a folding exercise bike or Matthew Pope's Addax sofa.
