Tan France knows a thing or two about finding gorgeous design pieces. After all, he was a successful fashion designer for more than 15 years before gaining worldwide fame in the Emmy-winning reboot of Queer Eye.
In the show, now in its fourth season on Netflix, France is the witty wardrobe wiz, leading the charge in the fashion department and making the world fabulous again — one makeover at a time.
He is also the author of a recent memoir, Naturally Tan (St. Martin’s Press), which is filled with his trademark humor, savvy sense of style, radical compassion and very personal revelations.
Here, France lends his keen eye to 1stdibs, picking a few favorite pieces and sharing his philosophy for holiday gifting.
“When it comes time to select presents,” he tells us. “I love to choose unique, quality pieces that the recipients can keep for years to come — something beautiful that they may not purchase themselves. Whether it is an accessory or something for the home, a thoughtfully curated gift can be a lovely daily reminder of a special relationship.”
