The Girard ornaments are a delightful range of small decorative pendants with seasonal motifs from the 1960s. Made of metal with a polished brass effect finish, these sweet ornaments can be hung around the home all year, or used as a festive decoration at Christmas time. You have the choice between five different motifs: dove, moon, sun, mouse, and heart. Of course, it is recommended to order several different Girard Ornaments online to combine them.
As already mentioned, the design pendants do not have to disappear from the closet even after the Christmas season. For example, every year Girard Ornaments decorate branches in a flower vase.

The architect and designer Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures in American design during the postwar era. His passion for colors, patterns, and textures found expression in the field of textile design, which was a focal part of his oeuvre.
Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, the brand has left its mark on design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately became the powerhouse design institution we see today.
