One of the nicest ways to enjoy the best blooms of the season is with an arrangement of fresh flowers. Having the right vase on hand makes a big difference. A vessel's color, size, and shape should all be taken into consideration when the goal is to show off a bouquet to its best effect. Think about what form and hue will accentuate your flowers' best features. Here, three of our current favorites.
Vase by Studio Ro Smit from GOODEE
GOODEE is a goldmine for chic, ethically-sourced, and finely crafted home decor items. This medium-sized hand-thrown clay vase is no exception. Currently available in an earthy beige (shown) or brown, we admire the way it looks as styled here with a few stems of Achillea. We can easily image it with a bunch of other seasonal blooms, such as Coreopsis, Echinacea, or Rudbeckia, too. $95 at goodeeworld.com.
COVA Flower Vase by Light + Ladder
We're crazy for Farrah Sit’s household-item-meets-object-d’arte sensibility. Case in point, her COVA flower vase, with which we are particularly smitten. Small-to-medium roses would look lovely in it as part of an arrangement (as shown), or try it with a cluster of cropped calla lilies for a more formal look. $60 at lightandladder.com.
Ceramic Jug Vase from West Elm
Made entirely by hand by artisans in Chiang Mai, Thailand, this quirky conversation piece has a speckled white finish that reminds us of a fine vanilla-bean ice cream. It would look smashing with a shock of poppies or even with a bundle of their fabulous seed pods. Bonus: it's currently on clearance for $14.99 at westelm.com.
