If you want to give something a little more 'design' this festive season, kick the usual winter scenes into touch and send out these Barbican Estate Winter Greeting Cards.
Got a card to send or a present to wrap that could do with an injection of retro style? Take a look at the Debbie Powell range for Lagom.
For those who don’t know this work consists of stylized wildlife prints, posters and book illustrations, and now there is a range of greeting cards featuring his designs. Pictured here is the Octoberama card, an autumnal and decidedly midcentury style illustration on a 7 by 5 inches blank card.
The cards cost £2.25 each from Hus and Hem.
Sold as a pack of four, each card features an illustration of a midcentury sideboard (possibly something by G Plan) with a collection of ceramics and ornaments on top of it. Each card has a different sideboard and the objects vary, but looks to include Cathrineholm ceramics and Holmegaard or Whtefriars glassware. Perfect for welcoming a design conscious friend to their new home.
The cards cost £4.75 per pack from the Mrs Eliot Books store on Etsy.
Share your love of mid-century style with these Modernist greeting cards by Mrs Eliot Books.
You may remember her name from her modplants cushion we featured a little while back. Now she's applied her retro style to these four card designs, all illustrated of mid-century collections displayed on the cabinet. There's plenty of fun to be had in spotting your favourite designs: look out for Stig Lindberg, John Clappison and Kaj Franck for starters.
A pack of four cards costs $7.
