My father has been such a positive influence in my life, sharing his love of art and travel, different cultures, and history.
As Father’s Day approaches, I have been thinking about good gifts for dads. The AERIN Shagreen Tic Tac Toe Set is a classic game that has been given a luxurious upgrade, with a walnut and beechwood inlay and embossed shagreen pieces edged in brass, while the Shagreen Domino Set, crafted in Italy, has elegant pieces that are larger and leaner than typical dominoes. Both shagreen boxes look beautiful on a bookshelf or alongside the Classic Shagreen Frame on a desk.
The Danton Bottle Opener and Corkscrew Set is a stylish addition to a home bar, with a similar Art Deco-inspired design as the AERIN Archer Bookends and the Archer Magnifying Glass and Letter Opener Set, both pair well with my Large Sphere Match Striker in solid brass, and all are perfect for a study.
For dads who love the work of Peter Beard, a beautiful hardcover edition of Peter Beard—the collection of photographs and collages of Kenya that sold out immediately when it was first published in 2006—is available in one volume. Jejma Beard revised the edition with some never-before-seen images. Taschen’s new neat-size edition of Tree Houses is an ideal gift from a child. Perfect for fathers looking for inspiration or just to reminisce about boyhood, this collection of amazing treetop escapes around the world contains beautiful photography and is sure to capture their imagination.
To all wonderful dads, have a Happy Father’s Day.
