Finnish design icon, iittala, can help to make Christmas a better designed, more thoughtful and deliciously delectable experience. With the timeless aesthetic of its classic and much loved designs, iittala brings style and poise, charm and presence to any setting.
An iittala object makes for an exquisite gift; helps to create the perfect environment; provides a focal point and a talking point. As with many of its Nordic counterparts, iittala is a company with a minimal aesthetic that is well-crafted, clean and long-lasting.
Whenever you buy an object from iittala, you buy something that is intended to be enjoyed for many years to come, to be enriching, functional, used and loved.
At this time of year, iittala has a number of gifts that will please even the most savvy of design enthusiasts.
