2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Each year we pull together an assortment of our favorite pieces from the gallery that we believe would make unique and wonderful holiday gifts. Carefully hand-selected from our art and design collection, we have something for every type of person in your life...

With your acquisition online, by phone, or in person from now through December 23rd, you will receive a one-of-a-kind ÆRENA experience for two at RiverHouse by Bespoke Collection that includes a Blackbird Vineyards Portfolio Tasting and private gallery tour (a $190 value).


The Explorer

No matter where in the world your Explorer might turn up, there’s always a memorable way to mark the journey. Our vintage planetary and astronomical globes chart the course and help you plan the next destination (even if the places have changed names). The photography of Phil Borges and the drawings of naturalist Walton Ford will also afford you the luxury of continuing your travels via artistic transportation, from the comfort of your living room.






The Entertainer

For the life of the party, we have everything you could possibly need to entertain until the early hours. Impress all of your friends as you pour them the finest top shelf option by way of the Napoleon III "Coffre à Liqueur" Port Box; complete with a beautiful hand painted rosewood box protecting four crystal bottles and stoppers. Be sure and make the most of your entertaining space by adding some unique Art Deco leather club chairs and the whimsical dancing sheep of Giuseppe Palumbo.




The Artist

Sometimes the most creative are also the ones most in need of inspiration. When the artist in your life is looking for that extra little push, give a gift that keeps them creating. From start to finish, our 1950’s architects desk will be the perfect addition to the studio, including a built-in place for their tools. Study the masters in Taschen’s latest limited edition large size book, showcasing artist David Hockney’s life’s work in a captivating and signed limited edition. You could also help them spread their wings with the contemporary metal sculpture of Kevin Box, Rising Peace (Mini).








The Trendsetter

Stylish, suave, and sophisticated, ÆRENA is the ideal place to find the perfect gift for the Trendsetter in your life. Also from Taschen, the most complete collection of Gisele Bundchen’s fashion shoots, in a beautiful limited edition, collectable book. This publication is becoming more difficult to locate by the day, with very few of these books remaining. Be sure and peruse our artisan ateliers and give your Trendsetter a piece of jaw-dropping handmade jewelry. Finally, for the wall, the world-renowned Robert Mars delivers incredible pop art, inspired by the golden age of Hollywood (Marilyn Monroe piece pictured at the top of this page).




The One Who Has It All

What do you get the one in your life who seems to already have everything? Something truly and uniquely incredible of course, which no one does quite like the quintessential modern pop artist: Andy Warhol. We have one of a kind (not part of an edition) Warhol artworks from the Grapes (1979) series, which are rarer than any single piece from the edition, and as such, are the perfect gift for the one who seems to have it all...

Please reach out to your art consultant for more information on any of these wonderful gift ideas. As always, more design objects and artwork are available directly on our website.





In addition to inquiring through email, we invite you to peruse our vintage and antique offerings on 1stDibs.





Explore Music At The Next Level in the Gallery

Explore Music At “The Next Level” in the Gallery

Art and music have always been deeply connected. The duo often represents moments in time which are thoughtfully shared, admired and sought after. Some are timeless classics, others brand new hits, and if you’re truly lucky, you’ll find yourself enveloped in a festive tune you simply cannot help but sing along to.

As kindred souls, music is always at the forefront of our passion at ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens, no doubt elevated this past year with the opportunity to collaborate with the Foo Fighters at BottleRock Napa Valley, giving us the remarkable opportunity to show you how music, art, and wine all come together. These pieces are perfect for any music or art lover to add to your collection or give a gift that will be unforgettable.

Spiritiles

By Houston Llew

Vitreous enamel is a unique medium and Houston Llew has become a master of the age-old technique, taught to him by the great vitreous enamel artist, Zingaro. Llew uses glass powder to essentially paint with glass which are then quickly kiln fired- creating stunningly beautiful Spiritiles.

Each tile features a wonderful vignette, with the glass-like artwork bringing movement and vibrancy to any space. Around the edges, Llew has a quote associated with each piece, adding another layer to the work and truly making it a three-dimensional sculpture. These Spiritiles can stand on their own or can be hung on a wall. In addition to music themes, Llew’s studio creates a wonderful collection of Spiritiles.
