What good are fresh cut flowers without a beautiful vase? Or your cherished house plants? Or even just your dining room table? These ceramic vases make everything that much better, you only have to choose a shape and colour you’re wild about.
There’s hardly a more ancient and storied art form than ceramics, so if you want to feel like a Roman princess or Chinese empress you could hardly make a better choice than something from this selection of ceramic vases.
That doesn’t mean of course you have to choose something with an antique feel, although that’s certainly a great look if you already have a lot of retro pieces in your home. There’s plenty here that’s positively up-to-the-minute so don’t shy away from something that will go splendidly with your contemporary furniture and decor. We think a pair of black and white vases are the perfect complement to an ultra-modern monochrome look: try one tall and slender and one more squat for a cute pairing that will look phenomenal besides B&W photos and coal-coloured minimalist furniture. Or if you’re more of the maximalist type try a vase with an abstract pattern in bold colours and give it a fresh bouquet of wildflowers. That’ll really freshen things up!
Ceramic is a sturdy material so we love to place a few of these vases on our patio, decks, front porches, etc., wherever the exterior of our homes could use a sprucing up. Lighter colours work well with the canvas and distressed wood of outdoor furniture and are less likely to fade from harsh sunlight. If you’re ‘dining out’, to speak, bring out a lovely cotton runner in matching tones for your table to feel positively spoiled.
