Over the last few months, our social media feeds have played host to varying trends. First there was banana bread, then we had sourdough starters, puzzles and cycling soon followed but there has been one enduring feature on our Instagram which can be traced back to the origins of the food snap, and it shows no signs of wavering - tablescaping.
The art of curating the perfect layout for your dinner has come on leaps and bounds. While it was once simply about the food itself, as we’ve spent more time at home, we’ve found a whole new appreciation for the finer details.
To create a visual delight worthy of a grid post, there's been a huge surge in the popularity of decorative details - whether that be trinkets, candles or our personal favourite, vases.
For the centrepiece of your table, or to liven up your bookshelves, bedroom, living room or a once boring corner of the room, these vases transform cluttered areas into a considered curation. Alongside fresh floral bouquets, these statement vessels will create a homely, welcoming space full of personality.
From vintage-inspired bright and bold pieces, to museum-worthy sculptures, we have gathered our favourite statement vases. Mix and match to create a truly directional decor display.
