The Design Lover Gift Guide

Design lovers are a discerning bunch, and that means pickiness can come with the territory, (or ahem, so we hear). We’ll admit that those with extra-discriminating tastes aren’t always the easiest to shop for, so to help do our part, we’re letting you in a whole bunch of home decor items on our own personal EyeSwoon wish list. From a favorite, ceremonial-style incense burner to a gorgeous, gleaming bronze serving platter, it’s all right here. Happy gifting, from our design-loving freaks to yours!
