watch + read : Louise Bourgeois

To celebrate our new collaboration with The Easton Foundation, featuring the works of Louise Bourgeois, we wanted to share some of our favourite insights into the late artist's life. We are always overjoyed to see Louise's collections come to life, and can't wait to share our new collection with you, partly available now to pre-order here! 

French-Born, the artist lived in New York where she produced some of her most celebrated large scale sculpture pieces and textile works. Our first favourite insight of the life of Louise is from The New York Times. The prestigious publication had the pleasure of visiting the Louise Bourgeois House in NYC, just as she left it. "Louise never threw anything out", her assistant and dear friend Jerry Gorovoy is quoted saying, so the photos really give a wonderful insight into her personality.

November Christmas Gift Guide

NOVEMBER GIFT GUIDE

Here's a selection of our favourite gifts for entertaining, gifting or decorating in this festive season. 


Nice handmade gifts

Splatter Mug Large Short X Peter Shire    

Hand Built and all uniquely splatter painted, these amazing mugs made by Echo Park Pottery in California USA are a Third Drawer Down favourite. Functional and sculptural, how all mugs should be we say! 

 

Light Pink Dog Vase x Katie

We are so excited to have animal-themed ceramic art at Third Drawer Down from Cali babe Katie Kimmel. There's no discrimination between cats and dogs here either, we love both! The detail in the speckles and slightly off-centre faces is adorable, you will be naming your vase and keeping it forever.

 

Wall Art

Opening Hours Tea Towel x David Shrigley

David Shrigley is most commonly known for his Black and White illustrations which is why we thought it about time we did a Black and White Tea Towel! The Opening Hours Tea Towel makes for exceptionally cynical wall art and we love it.

 

Life Is Fantastic Tea Towel x David Shrigley

Third Drawer Down in collaboration with Scottish artist David Shrigley present Life is Fantastic, a Domestic Art Tea Towel. This is a digitally printed artwork on 100% linen. It can be seen as a functional domestic art tea towel or an artwork to be framed, loved and displayed in the home. A best seller and an eternal favourite of the studios. 

Afromuses Tea Towel x Chris Ofili

The humble tea towel is one of Third Drawer Down's signature artist products. A practical and fun way to dry the dishes, it can also be stretched onto a canvas at your local framer and double up as an affordable artwork for your home, as pictured here, in fact we insist you have these two framed-it's a must!?

Dancing Ladies Tea Towel x Frances Canon

Frances's Dancing Ladies work has been a studio favourite for a long time so having it adapted to a pretty pink tea towel is incredibly dreamy. Perfect for framing but also functional in the kitchen if you would like some dancing ladies there. Who doesn't. 

Practical but fun gifts

Ridiculous Stress Swan X David Shrigley 

First, we gave you the Ridiculous Inflatable Swan-Thing (which went viral - but that's another story) now, this holiday season, we bring you the Ridiculous Stress Swan-Thing. It's time to solve stress with swans! Packaged in the cutest box with a little hole so he can say hay, this desk companion is a must-have. 

 

Contour Keyring x Areaware

These contour keyrings by Areaware are simple and user-friendly, yet elegant in design. The brass metal screw clasp closes neatly and firmly, while the larger shapes allow you to either clip the ring to your belt or wear around your wrist. 

The keyring comes in two designs: The bell and the drop.

Memo bottle / Slim

Slim, stylish reusable water bottles in the new Slim size. Designed in Melbourne, the Memo Bottle is ideal for travel, the office, your bedside or simply slipped into your back pocket. Originally a kickstarter campaign, the Memo bottle was hugely successful and is now a Third Drawer Down best seller! Designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, the Memo Bottle Slim is 450ml and BPA free Tritan. 

Insulated Traveller Bottle x S'Well / Splatter

Triple walled, stainless steel insulated bottle perfect for hot and cold drinks, keeping them warm for 12 hours and cold for 24. Designed to fit perfectly in your hand with a wide mouth to enable ice in your beverages! 470ml, high grade stainless steel, non-toxic, non-leaching and BPA free.
