4725mag's on-point interiors: Danish design pop-up hosted by Oakland's Japanese kitchen + barware importers, Umami Mart

Typically, in Umami Mart's own words, "a curation of bar tools and glassware from Japan, as well as a bottle shop dedicated to sake and Japanese beer", this Oakland based boutique is stocking a gorgeous collection of ceramics and holiday trinkets from Danish makers Studio Arhoj for your holiday gift shopping pleasure.

Striking a rare balance between simplicity, modernity and personality - for the record, I've never found myself thinking that ceramics have personality, but these do. In droves - these functional and decorative storage pieces will bring life to any kitchen or bathroom counter top. 

Looking to add a hint of kitsch-yet-sleek (thanks to that muted gold) and effortlessly stylish Scandinavian design to your holiday decorating? These tree ornaments have you covered. 

So fricken cute, they're sure to please everyone in your family. From young kids to maybe even putting a smile on the face of a critical aunt or a curmudgeon-y, bah humbug-ing and probably drunk, twice removed uncle. 

Beautiful pen holders-come-vases will make for a lovely little gift with all year round appeal. Better still, buy a couple and have an insta-gift for that birthday gathering you're going to be invited to with little to zero warning in the spring. 

Stop by Umami Mart between now and December 24th to check out this unique collection for yourself. We can almost guarantee that you will not leave empty handed.
