Love, Love, Love

As Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, my inbox has been inundated with ‘great gift suggestions’ from PR’s to write about, each about as tacky as the next, so I started looking for more original ideas…

The Love sculpture by Robert Indiana has been a Pop Art icon since 1970 and I’ve always loved the miniature version of it, which I only just found out is actually meant to be a paperweight. Whatever you use it for, it is a beautiful object for both art or design lovers alike, and possibly the start of a collection, as they have been made in several colours. So instead of chocolates and roses, why not give something a bit more… lasting?

I’m sure they’re available at plenty of stores, but I’ve seen them sold at the Tate Modern Shop and Colette.
