Can you believe it’s already December? The year has flown by quickly and we’re at that point where gift-giving is on everybody’s mind in some capacity. Vastu is here to help with several gift ideas we’ll share with you in the coming days, but first we’d like to highlight the Maharam Memory Game.
“Maharam is a fourth-generation family business founded in 1902. Recognized for its rigorous and holistic commitment to design, Maharam offers a comprehensive collection of textiles for commercial and residential interiors. Maharam textiles are included in the permanent collections of numerous museums, including the Stedelijk, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Museum of Modern Art.”
Using famous fabric designs, Maharam has created this classic memory game that’s sure to both delight design enthusiasts and inspire budding creatives. The game features 36 classic designs on 72 tiles of heavy card stock which are printed in Germany. Each set comes in a storage box and is $36.

In addition to the great Herman Miller Holiday Sale (that lasts through December 11th) we have going on, Vastu is offering a couple more deals this weekend only! All three of these items would make great gifts this holiday season.
Hot N’ Cold Glasses (Set of 4), regularly $36 are now $30!
These versatile glasses are good for both cold and hot beverages with a rubber sleeve that serves to insulate as well as prevent glass sweating. 5 great colors to choose from: Blue, Hot Pink, Lime Green, Black and Purple.
These one of a kind pieces are designed and handmade by Lynn Read, out of Portland, Oregon. These vases begin as sheet glass supplied by local Oregon and Washington vendors. Rather than the conventional gas furnace, electric furnaces powered by renewable energy heat the glass. The glass is blown into vases of all shapes and sizes and the slight color variation makes even two like pieces unique.
Bulb-Incalmo, regularly $135 is now $108
Tube Top, regularly $95 is now $76
Just a reminder that tomorrow is Small Business Saturday! So while you’re out doing your holiday shopping, why not patronize a small/local business at the same time? And if you register your American Express card you can actually receive a one-time $25 statement credit when you spend $25 or more at a participating location (like Vastu!)
Here are some interesting stats from Think Local First to get you motivated!
- An average consumer will spend $700 on seasonal merchandise and gifts over the 2011 holiday season.
- When you spend $100 at an independent business, $68 returns to the local community. Spend that same amount at a national chain and it drops to $43.
- For every square foot a local firm occupies, the local economy gains $179 vs. $105 for a chain store.
- Locally-owned businesses reinvest in the local economy at a 60% higher rate than chains and Internet retailers.
