Philip Johnson Glass House Design Store 2018

Own a Piece of Design History: The 2019 Sight Unseen Gift Guide, Part IV

The architect Philip Johnson spent 46 years building the 14 structures that comprise the Glass House, and 58 years personally living there. It's an incredibly important snapshot of design history, spanning the years 1949 to 2007, and our final gift guide this week has similar aims: We've rounded up 27 of our favorite important design objects that are available for sale in the Glass House Store, from iconic 1920s lamps and 1950s Aubock paperweights to more recent pieces that are on their way to becoming icons in the future.

In addition to our editor picks — today's by Monica — we asked our favorite designers and influencers to share their best gift ideas, and over on Instagram, you'll have the chance to win four of the coolest items from each of our three guides.

75 Gifts We’re Coveting — Ryland

Welcome to Sight Unseen’s second annual gift guide, in which each member of the Sight Unseen team will share the 25 items they’re coveting at the moment. Today's honors go to the newest third member of Sight Unseen: assistant editor Ryland Quillen. Gift guides are great because they not only tell you what cool things to buy for your loved ones but they also give you a sneak peek into the inner workings of the author's brain. For example, Ryland likes: chunks of resin embedded in things, glyphs, figurative animal prints, and long walks on a rocky beach. If you do too, this is the list for you! Happy holidays!

75 Gifts We’re Coveting — Monica

If you’re anything like us, you probably spent this weekend thinking less about buying new things and more about giving thanks for what you already have. But let’s be real: Gifting season is about to get seriously underway, and with that in mind we've put together a fantasy wish list of all the beautiful, considered design objects we've been eyeing lately. Welcome to Sight Unseen's second annual gift guide, in which each member of the Sight Unseen team — Monica on Monday, Jill on Tuesday, and Ryland, our assistant editor, on Wednesday — will share the 25 items they're coveting at the moment, from the attainable ($10 chocolate bars) to the wildly aspirational ($10,000 chairs). Happy holidays!
