December 22, 2017

At KingsHaven, we know you want to enjoy the best all year-long. We also know you want a little extra sparkle to enrich your lives and your home during the holidays. If you are like us, giving truly luxurious, unique and personal gifts to friends and loved ones is at the top of your holiday to-do list.

After all, adding creative and beautiful touches to your home makes it the warm setting that inspires cheer among friends and family. Here are a few of our favorite things from KingsHaven for adding a gorgeous glow to your home or gifting to loved ones.

Industrial elegance meets French chic in this KingsHaven Bastille Day pendant light. This handcrafted iron pendant will bring a French flair to any space. It is stocked in three finishes unique to KingsHaven: Charred Iron, Brushed Brass and Antique Nickel. And true to all KingsHaven fixtures, it can be creatively customized in multiple ways. This fixture is frequently ordered in Charred Iron with the diamonds in a Brushed Brass or Antique Nickel finish. However, an accent color of your choice can be added, no matter the shade or hue. For rooms requiring a shallower fixture, this pendant is available in a semi-flush style as well.

Our popular Nautique Table Lamp was inspired by a rare antique French armillary sphere, that was used in the 19th century to tell time aboard a sailboat on sails across the ocean. Our Nautique has retained the spherical framework of hand-hammered iron rings, centered on earth with an arrow. The Nautique with its striking design has been elegantly updated for use in transitional, classic and modern homes. This striking beacon of light is available in Charred Iron, our artisan plated Brushed Brass and Antique Nickel finishes. Use it to light your home this season or as a special gift for that beloved individual who has everything but this, they’ll love it!

Every well-appointed home needs the graceful presence of a sleekly designed side table. This one we have named the Atwater Occasional Table and this lovely little table has a hand-hammered artisan-crafted finish that exudes a subtle glamour. Adding to its many attractions is its incredible versatility. It easily accommodates a variety of spaces. It’s a must-have for minimalist décor or as an eye-catching addition to any living room, den, library or other space where art, form, and function are the needed touches. This table looks great virtually anywhere! Available with a marble or wood top in Charred Iron, Brushed Brass, or Antique Nickel. Wouldn’t this table would be a lovely gift idea for aside your loved one’s favorite chair?

Just look at this charming beatnik in his natty beret and shades. Paris Percussion Mouse belongs in a tiny nightclub in 1960s-era Paris, banging on his minuscule bongos made of felted wool. Hang him on your tree or gift him for someone else’s, and figuratively sniff the faint scent of bourbon and the curling smoke of clove cigarettes. The sight of him hanging on a tree branch will make guests think of a fun hole-in-the-wall spot on the Left Bank where mice listen to jazz in wintertime. Don’t you want to join them, Daddy-o? If so, add him to your tree this year, or gift him and some of his creative pals to a friend you know who loves jazzy panache.

Our flight of Peace Silver Dove Holiday Ornament exudes holiday cheer and is available in nickel as well. Ah, yes, as we all know, the dove has long been seen as a symbol of peace, and its image is often seen during the holiday season for this reason. This artisan-crafted ornament was handcrafted and tooled in brass and then hand plated in silver or nickel. The natural beauty of this small but remarkable piece of artwork reminds us of the beauty of nature. A set of these shining beauties offer variations of style and design, as each in the set has a unique shape.

There is a wealth of nostalgia that comes with the Christmas traditions of Germany, a country whose holiday aesthetic gained widespread popularity when the Germanic Prince Albert married England’s Queen Victoria. One such tradition is the diminutive Putz house with its accompanying bottle-brush trees. As history has it, such Christmas village trees and houses were found in stores of Victorian times. Today, the charming trees can be discovered on the most glamorous of mantles, naturally. KingsHaven offers them in the form of Sparkling Snow Holiday Trees, displaying shining shades of silver and blue with shapely snow-capped branches. Line them on your mantel or other placements like your holiday table, and create a sense of seasonal flair for your family and guests.

Won’t you hang one of these little lovies on your Christmas tree? The KingsHaven Special-Edition Holiday Pet Ornaments are so cute, they will make your heart grow three times its normal size! Handmade of felted wool, they are available in your choice of household pet, dog or cat, so no animal lover is left out this season. Moreover, proceeds directly support the Brandywine Valley SPCA’s mission to put the “human” back inhumane animal treatment and to create a No-Kill Community for animals in Pennsylvania and Delaware. KingsHaven is a supporter of the cause, and we hope you will join us by decorating or gifting with these adorable pets.

As we select our final holiday decor items and make our last round of gift purchases for the holiday, remember this is a time for love and laughter. At KingsHaven, we believe there is no better place than the well-appointed home in which to savor such happy times. From all of us at KingsHaven to you and yours, may your hearts and homes glow with health, love and cheer this holiday season and in the New Year!
