Vases serve a practical function as well as a decorative one: ensuring flowers stay alive by soaking their stems in water while adding a sculptural and colorful touch to a shelf, coffee or dining room table. They can absolutely fulfill their second function without any flowers. Depending on whether or not you enjoy seeing flower stems or having sunlight shine through a vase, choose from opaque or transparent options. If you’re looking for a statement piece, perhaps a bold and sculptural vase is your best bet. From Carlo Moretti’s Venetian glass vases adorned with bright colours to chunky Jonathan Adler pieces made of white porcelain or Richard Ginori’s intricate patterns, adding an eye-catching vase to any room will elevate your interior decor.
