At Modern In Denver, we strive to celebrate Colorado’s creative community, and we couldn’t do it without support from some of those creators themselves. As a way to say thanks to all of our advertisers—our partners—who have supported our mission over the years, we’ve compiled a holiday gift guide, complete with our favorite picks from their showroom floors. Bring the creative support full-circle this holiday season, and shop with the partners whose contributions help us celebrate and promote our creative community!
FOR THE HOST AND HOSTESS
We love the well-proportioned TURN fruit bowl (left) by e15, which beautifully holds fruit or simply serves as a sculptural vessel. You can find the e15 line at Studio Como in RiNo. Until their new showroom opens, visit them online or schedule an appointment.
FOR THE COOK
This duel-fuel, 48-inch range from Miele is one-of-a-kind. We love its all-in-one capabilities: It’s a combination convection oven and microwave to help reduce additional appliances. It has a steam injection feature that let you inject steam at any time during the baking process, along with eight burners, five shelves inside, and the push-open warming drawer is just the cherry on the top. Find this HR 1954 DF 48″ Dual Fuel Range model at Kitchens at the Denver.
FOR THE GADGET LOVER
We swooned over the QLOCKTWO classic wall clock when it first came out, and now, we can don the fun wordplay timepiece right on our wrists with the QLOCKTWO W. The watch is available in five languages and several colors. Find it at Studio 2b in RiNo.
FOR THE BARTENDER
An asset to any bar cabinet, the Axis Stainless Steel Pitcher features clean modern lines. Measuring a slender 4″ in diameter by 11″ high, it’s well sized for any bartending job, and you can find it right inside the Cherry Creek Mall at Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams.
FOR THE ENTERTAINER
We love Eames’ influence on this molded Ply Walnut Tray from Room & Board. Made from 100 percent biodegradable, natural materials, the shape creates not only visual interest, but function as well, as the bends forming handles. Use it to serve, stack, or decorate!
FOR THE DECORATOR
Perfect for a modern rustic home or mountain retreat, we love the orange Deer Head Pillow Cover. Take a trip to the Steamboat Springs brick-and-mortar store or order this locally crafted pillow online from Stel House + Home—founded by the folks at Vertical Arts Architecture.
FOR THE ECO-FRIENDLY
Go all out this year and give the gift they’ll really love—an all-electric i3 from Schomp BMW. The i3’s carbon fiber body means no carbon footprint. No gas station fill ups? The next chapter of transportation has arrived. We think it’s pretty neat, and it’s priced more reasonably than one might think, starting at $30K.
FOR THE OUTDOORS LOVER
Denver has some mild days in winter, and al fresco dining is a must on those rare and special spring-like days. Enjoy them with this bistro set from Birdsall & Co. on South Broadway.
FOR THE ART LOVER
Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art features one of the largest collections of modernist international decorative art on view in North America—and it’s right here in Denver. Give the gift of museum membership for the lover of the arts.
FOR THE ORGANIZER
For work or home, the Stash from Watson is a sleek solution for a clutter-free space. We love that it’s on casters and can discreetly store bags and even CPUs.
FOR THE HOME IMPROVER
Hate when the shower water gets cold when a toilet flushes? Time to upgrade to a thermostatic valve, particularly a sleek-looking one like this Grohtherm 2000 from Grohe. It is a modern solution for the bath and shower, providing a seamless shelving option, while the extra-large spout delivers a wide water flow. Check it out at Architectural Design Sales.
FOR THE CLASSIC COLLECTOR
Call it what you will—classic, icon, slice of hard-shelled tropical fruit. Half a century later, George Nelson Coconut Lounge Chair is as wonderful to look at—and sit in—as ever. Find it at Workplace Resource.
FOR THE ADVENTURER
Need to get away from the city? From your job? From the usual? Buy a gift for yourself this holiday season—the MINI Countryman available at the Ralph Schomp dealership. We love its classic MINI look, but appreciate the extra space in this version and its all-wheel drive.
FOR THE MODERN ENTHUSIAST
Last but not least, no shopping is complete without a gift subscription to Modern In Denver magazine! Buy one for everyone on your list to stay up-do-date on the latest in modern architecture, design, interiors, art, and our creative community!
