It’s always nice to give something cozy for Christmas. These Sofia baby alpaca throws with ice-blue stripes from Victoria’s Bespoke Design are luxuriously beautiful for any décor style. The only downside? You may have to buy two so you can keep one for yourself!

>>  Did you know? Alpaca fibre has no lanolin (the oil found in sheep wool) so it holds less dust, allergens and bacteria. Plus it’s odour-, stain- and wrinkle-resistant.

Available through Bespoke Design

Use these Global Views pedestals alone or in staggered groups. The modern plinths are perfect for elevating plants and objets d’art. They fit nicely in hallways, entry corners and even right in front of windows for the wall-space challenged.

Available through Luxe Home Interiors
