Mid-Century Arabesque Glass Vase, Short, Red
The accent pieces you choose show your personality and taste, and they are the things that turn a house into a home and a tabletop into a stunning exhibit. The finishing touches you put in your rooms add warmth and coziness while the embellishments and accessories turn a basic living space into a home and a showroom for entertaining guests. Bring the beauty of nature into your home when you fill vases from west elm with your favorite flowers and foliage. Choose elegant silk blooms and greenery or long-stem dried plants for scent-free beauty, or opt for freshly cut flowers to scent the air delicately. Nestle vases on end tables alongside lamps and sculptures to create a dramatic, picturesque display. Alternatively, turn the filled vase into a focal point in the room by placing it on a coffee or dining room table as a centerpiece.
Protect your furniture from water spots when placing cut flowers in the home by choosing from our collection of watertight glass, enamel, porcelain and ceramic vases. Create a conversation piece by placing a luminous glass vase on one of our dark wood occasional tables so the light creates a shimmering effect in the color of the vase as it passes through the curved glass. Add jewel-toned or vibrantly colorful accents to the room with our enamel and handcrafted ceramics, and enjoy these handcrafted pieces filled with or flowers or leave them empty and put several in a grouping to capture their ornamental beauty as sculptures.
Add the burnished glow of metal adornments to a hall table, bookcase, shelves or even a fireplace mantel to catch and reflect the light gently and to create an aura of understated elegance. With metal vases, confirm that they are watertight before filling and placing on your furniture or use silk or dried flowers rather than cut ones that require moisture. Empty or filled, position these alloy vessels alongside displays of books, family photos or other treasured knick-knacks for a personal touch in your living room, den or bedroom.
Add a contemporary touch to a primitive, rustic or Western-themed room with our hand-sculpted wooden vases. As with metal vases, check the product details to determine how watertight wooden vessels are before filling with water for fresh cut buds. Position the wooden casks on your end table or dresser in groups of varying sizes or choose a single one to put in a kitchen cupboard that has a glass door, on the mantel beside your favorite ornamental pieces or on a windowsill where the light filtering in frames the vase and its contents. After use, simply wipe the inside clean with a soft, dry cloth or plush, absorbent towel.
Arrange our terra cotta and pottery vases in groupings to enhance southwestern, primitive or French country decor. Handcrafted terra cotta adds texture and muted earthy color that pulls a room together while pottery comes in a variety of finishes and colors that pop for matching to furniture, patterns in your rugs or drapes. Fill a short, wide vase with pencils and pens and put it beside a basket filled with magazines and notebook in the living room or by a tray holding drink glasses or small dishes of snacks to guests.
Use small pieces to create a big impact. Add some plants that breathe life and fresh air to your decor when you put out sculptured vases that double as planters. Tuck a tiny air plant into the styles that are made from wood or clay, and position them in front of a large mirror or collection of smaller-looking glasses in decorative frames. The mirrors catch the light and create the illusion of both a larger room and of having double the amount of vases and plants. Before storing, simply use a cloth to wipe the planter clean inside and out.
