Even a simple vase can become beautiful with the right flower in it. This one right here for example, can bring some oriental elegance to any living room. I love how the red flower just sets off the clean lines and crisp colour of the vase.
This next vase is just too 007 not to be included here…
And while we’re on the subject of things you wouldn’t normally think of using as vases, who would have thought that a fish could smell like flowers!

And finally, my favourite. As the two pieces of this vase, created by industrial designer Alessandro Beda, are separate, you can make it as long or short as you want. It really is a gorgeously unusual vase!
