In the electronic age, low-tech can feel like an absolute luxury. Case in point: Graphic Image, a family-owned company that’s been producing photo albums, datebooks and desk accessories for 40 years. Its pieces range from modern (candy-colored goatskin notebooks) to traditional (leather-bound albums with gilt-edged pages), but one thing that’s always consistent is an obsessive attention to quality. Its leathers come from top tanneries in France and Italy, its crocodile covers are hand-stained, and all the bindings are Smyth-sewn for a warm, rich look. Now who can say that about a cell phone?
Perfect presents for every person and occasion
Great design comes home
This 30-year-old-plus company consists of design lovers who travel the world looking for objects that are anything but cookie-cutter. As proof, look to this collection of vases, jars, and decorative accessories. The pieces may range from traditional to modern, but each one possesses a lighthearted, ever-so-slightly beachy vibe marked by organic-inspired shapes, uncommon details, and eye-catching finishes.
