Vases

Vases are useful for arranging flowers, but they are also used in interior design for dramatic effect.

The placing of the vase makes a difference - whether on a shelf, mantelpiece, as a dining table centrepiece, or on a coffee table. You can also choose the room the vase will sit best in. For example, a vase in an entrance hall that is in the line of vision as you open the door can make a good impression for visitors. You can also place a vase in an alcove or on a pedestal - reflective of classical style.

A filled vase also creates a very different look - whether it is filled with flowers, shells, pebbles or pine cones.

The Kartell Calice Vase by Ettore Sottsass is made from mass-coloured thermoplastic technopolymer, comes in five rich opaque shades. This is a vase which does not need to be filled to captivate and hold attention.

Similarly, the jewel coloured Kartell Shibuya Vase by Christophe Pillet for Kartell is spectacular and has the wow factor. There is a lid which can be removed so that the bowl of the vase can be used at the table for serving.

Kartell Misses Flower Power by Philippe Starck with Eugeni Quitllet is a huge, ‘oversized’ vase for indoor and outdoor use. When a number are lined up, their sheer size coupled with their style and elegance makes a dramatic impact.

Vases can also be used for stunning table centrepieces like the transparent Kartell I Shine, U Shine Vase & Table Centre by Eugeni Quitllet. This vase and table centre were designed using inspiration from glamorous Art Deco shapes and geometry.
