These touches of colour are essential for interiors that are a little “neutral” and serve as a base for anything. Groups of vases can bring a beautiful volume to an empty space while remaining light and airy.
Don’t hesitate to let your collector spirit fly free and accumulate gorgeous antique or modern pieces while making sure to choose different sizes so they look more dynamic together.
To create a cabinet of beautifully old-fashioned curiosities you can mix in reproductions of antique vases with pearlescent surfaces or Asian motifs that go together marvellously with obscure and delicate objects, shells, pebbles, dried leaves or tschotchkes.
In the same spirit, it’s fun to mix shades of glass on a white or light wood piece of furniture to give a transparent stained-glass effect while playing with shadow and light.
You can also opt for a strong, impressive and/or original piece that can be displayed with pride in a carefully chosen place just like a real piece of art – use it to dress the corner of a room, for example, the foot of a bookcase or a cleared space on a buffet.
Vase are the shining stars of collections
Sleek, sculpted, sophisticated, raw, bottle-like forms, origami or Dame Jeanne style - vases bring a little poetry to your interior and can lend themselves to many different uses.
Where? In a living room, of course, but not exclusively. These unobtrusive and adaptable design stars can be moved in the blink of an eye to transform and enrich spaces around the whole house - and also outside, in the garden or on a terrace like a subtle design reference to nature. Ah yes, we love them so much as decorative objects that we’ve forgotten a little detail – they can also be used to hold flowers and branches!
Pieces that are a little rustic can be selected to give a country feel to a kitchen, or test tube shaped vases can give a modern and refined feel that’s also welcome in the bathroom. A more refined piece can give intimate rooms such as the bathroom or even the bedroom the soft extravagence of a boudoir.

A design element that’s light and easy to style, looks beautiful in every setting and brings nature into the house all year round? No wonder vases are the shining stars of collections!
