You might not instantly associate Valentine’s Day with homeware gifts, but why not?
Fall in love with your home all over again, or treat your loved one, with these gorgeous bright red Valentine’s Day homeware ideas. All the ideas are perfect to give as gifts for Valentine’s Day or just for cheering yourself up.
1. Miss K table lamp, Flos
Pricey? Well, yes, a bit. But it’s designed by Philippe Starck, and it’s just..well, gorgeous.
With its mirrored inner surface the outer shade becomes transparent when the light is turned on and the inner bowl shaped diffuser becomes increasingly visible. This effect is heightened as the lower reaches of the inner bowl curve away to nothing creating a beautiful fading ghost of light. This is a great investment that will bring you pleasure for years. Was £240, now £216, available from Rume.
2. Valentine’s Day homeware red metal LED heart light, Cult Furniture
Welcome to Vegas, baby! This cool miniature 13″ LED circus light would look perfect on a mantelpiece or kitchen shelf. It can be powered by AA batteries or mains connection for maximum versatility. Was £30, now £9, available from Cult Furniture.
3. Vintage patchwork rug in red, Louis de Poortere
Add a little quirky vintage style with this patchwork rug. It’s made on a traditional Jaquard loom and then finished by hand by expert craftsmen for a slightly distressed look. Made of cotton and wool, it’s available in a range of sizes. Prices start at £90 from Modish Living.
4. Duke cocktail chair, Swoon Living
Cocktail, dahling? Just put together a quick Tom Collins in your silver cocktail shaker, and then you can sip it from a fluted glass in this lovely chair. It has a retro feel with its oak legs and hand-stitched detailing, but is upholstered in bright contemporary coloured velvet including this Rouge. £369, available from Swoon.
5. Bud vase in red, LSA
What Valentine’s Day homeware ideas would be right without a vase? Mouth-blown from a single piece of glass, this hand-made bud vase instantly adds jewel-like colour to any room. It would be perfect for holding any flowers that might happen to come your way on February 14th, but would look equally good holding wild or spring flowers. £13.95, available from Annabel James.
6. Vivaraise cushion Zeff Garance, Printer + Tailor
Supersoft and comforting cushions to pile on a bed or sofa. These are pure linen to one side with a cotton reverse. They feature a concealed zip and come with filler. Available from February 2019, £26 from Printer + Tailor.
