Sure, flowers can brighten any room, but a well-chosen vase brings a spot of beauty even when it's empty.
Designed by FX Balléry and available through A+R, the Pik's three connected vases perform an understated balancing act, while cheery accent colors and pale wood nod to Nordic design.
These affordable colorful glass vases by French designer Christophe Pillet for Kartell debuted at the 2013 Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
Designed by the world-renowned Jaime Hayon and inspired by the dynamic cultural influences of Turkey, London and Islam, these copper grid vases are contemporary in design despite their rich and rustic colors. Use them to display fresh flowers, or let them stand out as eye-catching focal pieces.
Known for creating pieces that blur the line between functional design and art, designers Andi Kovel and Justin Parker's Slump Vases for Esque are colorful, memorable, and just plain fun to use. The vases come in 12" ($348), 14" ($598), and 18" ($898) sizes, and a range of colors including blue, fuschia, and orange. Made to order, by hand, in Portland, Oregon.
Like a forest of pyrex tubes, the glass Mistic Candle Holder/Vase, designed by Gaia & Gino, can be used as either a candle holder or a vase. This collection won the Red Dot Design Award in 2008, Wallpaper's 2007 Best Centerpiece Design Award, and the Design Plus Award in 2006.
