Because you’d have to be living under a rock to avoid royal couple wedding coverage over the past few weeks, we tasked Décor Aid interior designers and team members to dish their favorite fantasy gifts fit for Meghan and Harry and just about any royal couple.
From cutesy ceramics that evoke Americana by Elizabeth Price to Val Saint Lambert’s updated decanters, think of it not only has a royal registry of sorts, but really, the ultimate in gift-giving obsessions.
David Hammons Basketball Hoop
“Because I like to think of them as more relaxed and playful than Kate and William, and because I would kill for one myself, I’d gift them something as outrageous and magical as artist David Hammons’ ‘Basketball Chandelier’ which also hints at Meghan Markle’s roots and America’s fascination with symbology and sports.” – Décor Aid interior designer Shannon T.
Robert Longo Works
“As a couple that I assume has spent a lot of time sitting under and looking up at chandeliers, imagine their jaw-dropping reaction to artist Robert Longo’s technically brilliant, striking ‘Crystal Chandelier’ charcoal masterpiece which is large enough to take up an entire palace wall.” – Décor Aid interior designer Maite M.
Pierre Cardin Furniture
“As I like a mix of antique, retro, and modern, I’d like to see the royal couple inject some 60’s era marvels like these highly collectible Pierre Cardin chairs that would add the right amount of intriguing play to their home, which looks like a pretty standard English estate.” – Décor Aid interior designer Raul L.
Antoine Philippon/Jacqueline Lecoq Furnishings
“Since this is a fantasy list and I’m thinking more about what I’d want for myself, who wouldn’t love unboxing this amazing, forever cool early 60’s L-shaped glass desk?” – Décor Aid project manager Renta O.
Gio Ponti Vases
“As they’re probably a couple who has and can buy anything they want, I’d think out of the box while looking for something that’s truly heirloom-worthy like rare porcelain objects from Gio Ponti.” – Décor Aid account coordinator Christine H.
Elizabeth Price Ceramics
“To me, Mehgan and Harry look like they like to have fun and possess a subtle, yet rebellious streak between the two of them and I’d love to see artist Elizabeth Price’s decorative figures in repose set amongst the queen’s tea sets. I also like that they’ll reference Meghan’s roots with hints of Americana.’ – Décor Aid interior designer Maxwell W.
Vilbert Chairs Verner Panton
‘I’d get the royal couple something they possibly don’t have already like Verner Panton’s iconic Vilbur chairs that’ll make a great, striking setting for future family portraits.” – Décor Aid project manager Mike J.
Val St. Lambert Decanters
‘I love the fact that even old-school, established brands like Limgés and Val Saint Lambert are stepping up their game with classic silhouettes reimagined with statement-making, avant-garde twists like these conversation-starting decanters.’ – Décor Aid interior designer Courtney L.
Cire Trudon Cameo
‘Though it’s trinket sized and under $50, I’d like to give them something that would remind Meghan Markle and Prince Harry of the royal family’s elegant, aristocratic roots like this scented cameo which is also a bit tongue-and-cheek.’ – Décor Aid interior designer Mark A.
