The theme of Russia in design has overgrown with stereotypes asno other. But in vain. So we decided to restore justice and debunk some myths on the New Year's Eve. Probably, many of you read the headline and thought: "Now it will start again ... khokhloma, gzhel, matryoshka ..." No, friends, it won't. We promise that in our review you will not see anything from that narrow circle of decorative clichés that are considered to be Russian. The culture of Russia is so multifaceted that it has enough other plots and motives in stock that can inspire leading designers and conquer the hearts of modern connoisseurs of beauty. It turns out that well-known brands have long begun to master this unplowed field, and there are already some decent results. Let's take a look! We guarantee that the viewing will be interesting and you will experience a whole range of feelings: from pleasant nostalgia and sweet affection to pride in the country and pleasure from subtle humor. Let's start with humor. 1. Writers Admit it, you recognize all six! And who doesn't recognize them? Giants of thought, great people who gave the world so much interesting and constructive things.

A.Mostowski is for those who like to remember the good old days, when you could go sledding all day long, fiddle around in the snow, and your grandmother always tied a scarf halfway across her face to protect it from frost. A picture of a girl in a shawl digging snow with a child's shovel has been circulating on the Internet for a long time - a kind of visible symbol of Soviet childhood. So, the developers of Christmas tree decorations made a glass figurine from this photo - it turned out exactly the same.

Charismatic, filled with history, they warm the soul and give new strength, like loyal friends. It is worth hanging a miniature radio, a telephone and a sparkling samovar on the tree, and it will immediately acquire charm, become original and charming. For collectible toys, there is another way of placing them in the interior: on a special stand as an independent decor.

This is our indisputable achievement. Back in the 1960s, design literally exploded with images of rockets, planets and astronauts. On each tree there were always people in spacesuits. There were even electric garlands in the form of a chain of the Sun, Saturn, Earth, other planets and space satellites. Well, the theme returns in a new guise - in the form of snow-white porcelain toys with brass holders from Jak Joten.

In Europe, there are Santa Clauses with whatever names you like, but only we have a female character. True, by now the Snow Maiden has already managed to spread her charm to other countries. It is painted with paints and blown out of glass not only in Russia. Either she appears as a funny little girl in a kokoshnik sitting on the golden month (M. A. Mostowski), or as a slender girl with forest birds and hares in a winter forest (NeQwa Art). Where to buy: atlasart.ru, podaripodarok.ru 7. Russian winter By the way, about the forest and winter.The motive of the Russian winter is a very fertile ground for endless decorative variations. There are huge spruces covered with fresh snow, and nimble squirrels with cones, and cozy huts on a white expanse, and city tit birds with bullfinches and a birdhouse. The theme is represented by the brands G.DeBrekht, M. A. Mostowski and Mister Christmas Collection. Where to buy: 123magazin.ru, podaripodarok.ru, atlasart.ru eight.Santa Clauses in folk style You probably noticed the unusual Santa Clauses with radiant eyes, a kind smile and painted fur coats in the photographs above? These are unique products of the G.DeBrekht brand, popular among collectors around the world. It was founded by a Russian artist in 1977. For thirty years, a lot of work has been done to develop its own corporate identity, which would combine the traditions of the Russian school of painting and the artistic traditions of other cultures. This is how the original Santa Clauses appeared with picturesque paintings and recognizable Russian paintings. Figures are made of wood and polystone (artificial stone), they can decorate a Christmas tree, be used in festive compositions or serve as a gift for a dear person. The plots of the paintings are updated every year, but one thing remains unchanged: each Grandfather necessarily has a soft, cheerful and friendly character.

The famous cathedrals of Moscow and St. Petersburg are painted on glass balls from Mister Christmas Collection with a thin brush, on Father Frosts (G. DeBrekht) - small churches lost somewhere far away in the fields and forests. M. A. Mostowski offers a stylized version of St. Basil's Cathedral.
