Have you heard? Parachute popped up in New York! In partnership with BEAM – the modern home decor retailer based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn – East Coasters can shop our bedding best sellers alongside other exceptional giftables throughout the holiday season.

If you don’t find yourself in NYC this winter, you need not fret. Our friends at BEAM have curated a selection of their favorite furnishings that you can buy online. Their penchant for offbeat and utterly beautiful wares make their store (and site) a sure fire win for gifting with style. Good luck holding back.

For the Fashion Lover

These hand-painted dolls in the likeness of Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld are a modern reinterpretation of Japanese Kokeshi – and will be a huge hit for the more sartorially inclined. Sketch.inc for Lucie Kaas Kokeshi Dolls

For the New Home Owner

Lighting has the biggest impact on a space yet it’s often overlooked – tragic! This simple table lamp finesses any interior and offers a (fully-dimmable) warm glow, ideal for a bedside or desk. Menu JWDA Brass Table Lamp

For Parents with Toddlers

Your friends with littles may be skittish about burning candles, so gift them a diffuser as a safe alternative. The London Diffuser by Tom Dixon has an especially heady scent, with notes of black pepper, oud wood and vetiver, grounded by a deep base of cedar wood and patchouli. It’s like walking through a London park (from the comfort of home). Tom Dixon London Diffuser

For the Host

These are not your basic salt and pepper grinders – and that’s the point. The unique, inverted design of this Bottle Grinders set ensures that salt, pepper, pumpkin seeds, dried blueberries, walnuts – or whatever else you fill them with – only sprinkle when you grind, leaving no trace on your dinner table. Menu Bottle Grinders

This is how to elevate meal prep. Made from marble and beechwood, the versatile Crux Mortar & Pestle can be used to grind spices, herbs and teas. Use the wood bowl for softer milling and the marble dish for hard crushing. Umbra Shift Crux Mortar & Pestle
