Give yourself a few hours for this one.
At our annual retreat to the cabin in Powell River last year, a puzzle became a week-long obsession for more than a few people in our group. I’d never really got the puzzle thing before then—what, you make a picture?—but there’s something meditative (and obsessive) about slowly picking through pieces and getting that satisfying click when it works. This new Gradient puzzle from Areaware isn’t exactly Amish children picking pumpkins (as the puzzle from the cabin turned out to be), but I suspect just as satisfying—there’s no precise point where one colour becomes another. And ombre as a trend shows no sign of slowing down—so puzzle this one for a while.Gradient puzzle by Areaware, $25-$29, available at Design House in Vancouver, designhouse.ca; and Kit in Calgary, kitinteriorobjects.com.
