The holidays are a joyous time to connect with friends and family, shop for the right gift, and decorate our favourite spaces in ways that reflect the beauty of the season. This week, we feature some of La Collection’s pieces that would make the perfect present or a picturesque addition to any home, just in time to make your holiday list. Whether you find holiday spirit within a particular smell or sensational sights, these pieces are gems to behold and surefire ways to spread a little cheer.
Illuminaria Porcelain Room Diffuser
I love scents. I love how they converse directly with the subconscious. At the risk of sounding like a snob, I have to say that a great scent must be high-end and made by a good perfumer, which is why I love these home perfumes. They smell heavenly but are not overpowering, and the diffuser is a stunning porcelain flower. They’re perfect!

Holiday Greenery, Assorted
I grew up in southern Maryland, and around the holidays my mom would send my brother and me on a quest through the woods to find magnolia and evergreen branches, pinecones, and bittersweet berries that we would later use to decorate our house. I loved how the greenery made our home come alive for the holidays. This preserved greenery provides all the rustic holiday warmth and coziness of the real thing, without the hassle of having to hunt for it yourself!

Industrial Metal Side Table Pair, Vintage
“This vintage piece reminds me of a cozy fireside setting surrounded by friends. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy relaxing indoors while it’s snowing outside.”
-Daniel Moreno, Design Intern
Swirl Bowl, Large
These are so beautiful. The handmade designs add a punch of color to any décor and come in a wide selection of color combinations to match your design aesthetic. I love how neutral these are, and yet they still make a statement because of their unique shape and beauty. As each of these items are individually handmade, each piece will vary slightly color and size, which makes them a one-of-a-kind holiday gift.

Calm Horizon, Original Art by Sabine Roy
This painting reminds me of winter days; the white reminds me of being surrounded by snow and the yellow brings a feeling of joy and being youthful with friends. I love how this painting combines contemporary and classic styles in a beautiful way. It brings me excitement for the holidays!
-Hang Cho, Staff Architect
Antique Carnival Horse
I would love to receive this beautiful, painted wooden horse as a gift. With its antique appeal, it would look stunning under a nicely decorated tree surrounded in presents!
-Jessica Watts, Creative Operations Director
Crystal Tic Tac Toe in Emerald
Holidays are a sweet time to spend moments with family and friends. In my family, the holidays involve cooking, eating and playing games together. What better holiday décor to have than a gorgeous, eye-catching emerald piece that doubles as a fun game to play with family or friends?
-Abigail Youngstrom, Staff Designer
Dream Floral Diffusers, Moroccan Peony
I selected these diffusers because they combine the elegance of a monochromatic natural form with an awesome assortment of aromatics!

Metal Sphere Candles, Gold
These gold sphere candles would make a perfect hostess gift, but I’m also tempted to keep some for myself as a sophisticated holiday table decoration.
