A carefully selected vase will both show off your chosen blooms (whether a fresh flower delivery, a faux bunch or a dried arrangement) and work as a decorative piece in its own right.

Designer ceramics are increasingly becoming a serious style statement, sitting pride of place in the chicest of homes, with brands both old and new garnering cult followings. Take jeweller and ceramicist Anissa Kermiche: her viral designs, a witty and stylish take on the female form, have taken over our social media feeds in recent years and garnered her an A-list fanbase, including Gigi Hadid and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Historic names are still in demand, however – not least Italian design houses Seletti and Fornasetti. The former’s pop-art inspired pieces have blown up on Instagram, with hundreds of thousands of tags dedicated to the brand’s head-turning offerings, while Fornasetti has found a new legion of fans for its collection of whimsical pottery.

One of our favourite names to know now may already be familiar: when Henry Holland’s eponymous fashion label closed in 2020, he reset and debuted a mood-boosting ceramics line, full of boldly striped vases and matching candlesticks.

Here, we’ve curated a collection of vases to suit all tastes and aesthetics. There are irreverent, conversation-starting pieces that wouldn’t look out of place in a gallery, alongside more pared-back vessels where natural materials are the star of the show, as well as glass designs in a range of hues.

Anissa Kermiche's instantly recognisable pieces have spawned plenty of copycat designs and appear in some of the most well-curated homes. It’s her signature 'Love Handles' vase that consistently tops wish lists, and this versatile cream option is our pick. Style with eucalyptus or pampas grass to offset the boldness, go all-out maximalist with a joyful colourful bouquet, or simply let it stand alone.

We love this beautiful vase from Danish brand Reflections Copenhagen, which offers a lovely range of handcrafted crystal objects with strong Art Deco sensibilities. This piece takes influence from the pastel-coloured architecture of Miami’s South Beach, providing a seductive mix of drama and old-world glamour.

The fashion and interior worlds often blur, and no one knows this better than Henry Holland. The designer’s coveted homeware range has quickly become recognised for its distinctive silhouettes and ripple-like designs in a muted-but-striking colour palette. For us, this elegant green and ivory vase is a real stand-out piece that will look effortlessly chic wherever it’s placed.

There’s no mistaking Jonathan Alder’s eclectic style, with its gilded gold accents and bold colours. This statement vase is a classic way to invest: continuing the label’s penchant for personality-packed designs with a touch of ‘60s glamour, it's inspired by the concentric, geometric squares that defined the patterns of the decade.

Italian design houses do luxe porcelain pieces to perfection, and this vase from Ginori 1735 is a case in point. The Ming-inspired blue florals on a leaf-green base make this a beautiful piece in its own right, but also perfectly complement a bunch of fresh spring flowers, come the season.

Italian artist Piero Fornasetti reimagined the face of opera singer and muse Lina Cavalieri and used it on a variety of his interior designs in the 1950s, including this eccentric vase. The dreamlike depiction of Cavalieri on this vessel makes for an offbeat look that’s likely to steal the spotlight in any room – whether it’s styled with flowers or not.

Seletti’s literal take on a ‘heart-shaped vase’ makes for a statement-making decorative piece. The small openings, made to resemble arteries, are just wide enough to display single stems – dainty gypsophila sprigs would look especially striking. Suspend this unconventional design on a wall using the slot at the back, or employ its metal stand to display it on a side table or mantel. It also comes with a gift box and personalised card, making it an ideal present for anyone your heart belongs to.

Silver specialist Georg Jensen is perhaps best known for its signature jewellery pieces, but the extensive homeware collection is just as impressive. This polished stainless-steel vase was created in collaboration with Danish designer Helle Damkjær, who uses flowers to inspire her sculptural works.

The ideal present for any shoe-lover, this whimsical, cowboy boot-shaped vase from Parisian label Astier de Villatte is handmade by master artisans and engraved with the brand’s signature crest – depicting an interlacing A & V – alongside the initials of one of the 40 master artisans who created it. A unique piece in every way, it makes for a wonderfully off-kilter bud vase.

From luxury interiors brand Liang & Eimil, this vibrant vase, inspired by the exquisite Venetian glasswork beloved of mid-century Italy, is one of our favourites: the contrast of bold hues and tactile textures will help to add instant impact to any room. We'd recommend giving it pride of place near a window; when the reeded glass catches the light, the effect is truly magical.
