People obsessed with proportion, color and shape are notoriously difficult to buy for — this is no time for sweaters or pocketknives from the mall. Instead, look for those design classics your friend or family member have always wanted, or choose new beautiful objects that will also stand the test of time. Here are a range of ideas at different price points.
