Are you wondering what to ask Father Christmas for this year? Where to find those beautifully-made artisan goodies that you won't find on the high street? Look no further: interior designer and all-round taste-maker Octavia Dickinson has done the hard work for you.
As a keen champion of London's thriving art scene, she regularly commissions bespoke pieces for her clients from some of the world's most talented makers and crafts people. So if you're looking for something a little less ordinary this Christmas, Octavia has the answers...
ONE | Kalinko Moses Basket
I am about to have a baby and cannot think of a more chic Moses basket for it to (hopefully) sleep in.
TWO | Leather Bag from Rag of Colts
Made from old pieces of leather Caroline has collected, these bags are entirely hand-stitched and each and every one is unique.
THREE | Ceramics by Florence St George
Florence lives half in the Bahamas and half in London and you can see the influence the sea and coral have on her works. I think they are rather magical.
FOUR | Kalinko Bedspread
I have been helping my sister decorate her bedroom and this bedspread is the perfect way to finish the room off.
FIVE | Rattan Tray
The perfect stocking present for my mother - I can bring her breakfast in bed on it at the same time.
SIX | Heho Tissue Box
I have been buying a lot of these for my clients recently as they are very smart in spare rooms.
SEVEN | Ceramics from 8 Holland Street
I want to buy everything that 8 Holland Street sell. Set up by two young art enthusiasts, they sell a curated collection of furniture and art. I have been following the work of Emily Buck for a while.
EIGHT | Art by Caroline Popham
I have recently come across Caroline’s work and I find it incredibly peaceful. Owning one of her paintings is high up on my Christmas list!
