High and Low Vases

Here’s a couple of lovely vases by Jaime Hayon that aren’t going to hurt your feelings by being too expensive. The hand blown glass vessels have bulbous ends that would otherwise topple over if not for the contrasting solid cedar rings they rest upon. This mix of grey glass and warm cedar give you receptacles that are sculptural enough to display on their own or fill with a bouquet of seasonal flowers.

Luci Color Lamp

What’s this deflated solar thingy anyways? It’s the Luci Color Lamp, and it could be a fun addition to your household, especially if you’ve got kiddos running around. The Luci is waterproof, lightweight, and completely solar. It displays 8 colors (red, green blue, purple, yellow, cyan, orange, white) and takes 7 hours to charge. Use it in the pool or in the bathtub for fun- maybe get a couple, just so there’s no fighting over one- or string a few together for party lights.
