Let’s begin with transparent vases that exude modern style. This SAIC Glacier Vase from CB2 was designed by SAIC student Hyunsong Melody Lee. With a form that mirrors glacial formations, this lovely piece has a vase-within-a-vase effect:

Ready to go metallic? Gold and silver tones add festivity, and when showcased on modern forms, they have the power to be striking. This Via Fondazza Vase – Model C from RH Modern was inspired by the mid-century still lifes of artist Giorgio Morandi, designed by Paolo Dell’Elce, and crafted from spun brass:

Black porcelain is the material of choice for this Set of 3 Meadow Vases from Room & Board. Yet white makes an appearance, as the vases are dipped to create a two-toned contrast.
