Vases for Spring Flowers
Rubber Vase by Henriette Melchiorsen for Menu
Made of flexible rubber, this fragile-looking vessel is virtually kid- and pet-proof. Fold the neck inside the base to create a petite bubble-shaped container, or pull it out to reveal a gourd-like form. Available in five colors, including turquoise (shown).
To buy: $40, shopgrounded.com.
Scholar Vase by Middle Kingdom
This stout hand-thrown vase hails from Jingdezhen, China, regarded as the foremost center of Chinese imperial porcelain production. Available in turquoise and green apple (shown).
To buy: $24, vigamassi.com.
Dorset Vase by Simon Pearce
- Perhaps best known for its hand-blown glass creations, this 38-year-old company also produces a line of unique stoneware. Pieces are hand-thrown, one by one, on a potter’s wheel and hand-glazed, so each has a distinctive, artisanal quality. Available in celadon or white (shown).
- To buy: medium, $75; large $95, simonpearce.com.
Tall Dot Vases by Papaver Vert
Repeated hot-water machine washings (and some quality time with the agitator) helped give character to these colorful molded felt cover-ups. To clean the glass inserts, just remove and wash. Available in three colors.
To buy: $156, velocityartanddesign.com.

The design pro’s go-to source for stylish home accents, this NYC-based store sells simple frosted-glass vases individually or by the dozen. Available in three sizes.
