Thinking of You Vase Covers

Hurray for recycled vase covers that are particularly pretty- packed flat, they arrive ready for you to unfold and arrange. Do I need to point out that these would also make lovely gifts?

“Designer Tord Boontje has a history of taking recycled industrial materials and turning them into something functional. With his Thinking of You Vase Cover, an ordinary bottle is transformed into a centerpiece. The Vase Cover arrives packed flat, and is easily assembled around your found object. Choose from three designs or group all three for a festive, sparkling display. The Vase Covers feature delicate flowers, butterflies and nature-inspired shapes on arching tendrils that bounce and twist.”

Tall Vase Cover: H 12″ Diameter 6″

Medium Vase Cover: H 8″ Diameter 5.5″
Small Vase Cover: H 8″ Diameter 4″

Teeter Vase

The Teeter Vase has weighted inserts to allow balancing in multiple positions. A few clustered together would look great. And at the price, it’s affordable too.

teardrop vases

I love a good sale. But that means sometimes you don’t get exactly what you want. The small is sold out but the the large vase on the left (7″ diam x 8.25″h.) is available in mocha or indigo (but not clear).

Flat-Pack Vase

I’m having fantasies of becoming an urban nomad, roaming from one metropolitan city to the next. I’m planning on having a small cadre of products that can be flat-packed and easily transported. This is my first official entry to that effect. Let’s see how it goes.

E-LI-LI Vase

This vase looks like a delicately turned piece of paper.

The Alessi E-LI-LI Vase adds a striking architectural element to tabletop decor in a 2005 design by Mandrelli and Doriana Fukas. The ceramic version of the E-LI-LI Vase is slightly larger than the stainless steel version.

Black: Width 4.2 in., Length 12.2 in., Height 14.6 in.
Stainless: Width 3.3 in., Length 9.9 in., Height 11.8 in.

Here’s a nice basic shape vase that will quench your minimalist thirst. All colors are availble in a lacquered finish, which makes me happy.

Propeller Vase

I am quite taken with the shape of this vase.

“Munro creates a vase that’s both organic and industrial in feel. During the firing process, each ceramic vase is placed in a kiln of burning wood. When the wood touches the surface, it creates unique patterns and subtle colorations, so no two are exactly alike.”

Hand-wash only.
8.75h x 7.5w x 3″ diam
Designed by Keith Munro.

Paper Vase: Low Bottle

A long, long time ago I think I posted some vases just like this but in a different shape. I think I might like the shape of this one ever so slightly more.

“Fun, sculptural shape with a delightful surprise: each piece is made from pages and pages of bookbound, recycled newspaper. The paper has been fanned around a recycled aluminum vase insert to create a form that is soft and pleasing to the touch. The insert is removable to allow for easy filling and cleaning.”

Gun Wall Vase

I’ve not yet seen this version of the pistol vase. It mounts on the wall and you just fill the barrel with water and it’s ready for a flower.

Wall mount with fixings supplied.

Vase Maker

I think we’ve all seen this before but for some reason its genius is just striking me now.

“Vase Maker dissects the classic vase into its two functional elements: support for the flower and a container for the water that sustains it. You can place it upon a vessel of your choice – a wine glass, teapot, even another vase – to essentially design and redesign it with every use. The Vase Maker is a recent recipient of a design award in the RedDot International Product Design Competition.
Made of porcelain. Hand wash only.”

Ran-Over-By-Car Vase

Holy cow! Look at these! Craziness, huh? They’re results of accidents with cars!

“Before the accident, each vase is the same height and diameter and a bend at 2, 3, or 4 inches. Then there is the accident which makes each vase unique – transforming it, jarring it, scratching it – then black enamel is applied to the piece.”

2″ diameter x 10″ height

Bean Vases

These are super cute and you could pay for them with pocket change.

“Modern mini vases have friendly bean shapes in creamy white bone china with a high gloss. Perfect for place settings, powder rooms, desks, the kitchen window—anywhere you could use a floral pick-me-up.”

Astéroïde Vase

I’m not a big “vase” person (prounounced either way), but this one is amazing. I’ve seen it before*, but I don’t think it was in the context of something that could be purchased. Each one has 24 facets so it can be positioned in any way.
