The New Heirlooms | Gifts to Treasure by Modern Times
When it comes to Christmas, there’s a lot of ‘noise’ on the web around gift giving. The last couple of years I’ve purposely been very selective with what I share, looking out for special pieces that are unique, sustainable, and tell a story. Gifts that your loved ones will truly cherish. This stunning collection immediately resonated. Created by Melbourne design destination Modern Times in collaboration with some of Australia’s most exciting artists and designers, The New Heirlooms is a beautiful collection that celebrates the notion of giving something special that will be forever treasured.
The limited edition artist-made range includes ceramics, jewellery and art, available both in store and online – with global shipping. A collection of covetable gifts that represent treasure for the current day, Modern Times commissioned the works from its stable of contemporary Australian artists and designers including Nicolette Johnson, Hearth Collective, Claudia Lau, Oh Hey Grace, James Lemon, Sharon Muir and Peta-Marie Armstrong, among others.
