Furniture sure sets the stage when it comes to decorating, but I’d argue it’s the accouterments that really matter. Without those smaller design elements like artwork, plants, or decor objects, a room just feels devoid of personality. Right now in the midst of redecorating my apartment, I can’t get enough of weird, funky vases. From Pinterest to Instagram, my digital mood boards are stuffed with images of shelves and coffee tables adorned with off-kilter vases in wacky geometric shapes and patterns. They’re not the type of objects you’d immediately think of as conventionally pretty–and that’s the beauty of it.
From London based Completedworks’ lumpy ceramic vase to Anissa Kermiche’s wildly popular body-positive sculptures, these vessels are eye-catching works of art in their own right. While a fresh bouquet of flowers may be an age-old trick to liven up a space, throwing them in a cool, whimsical vase brings it to a whole other level. In the interest of sharing (and also because I can’t let my months of window-shopping go to waste), I’ve compiled a list of all the unique, weird vases I’m thoroughly excited about. Keep scrolling to see and shop them all.
