It's hard to go wrong with simplicity. Well-designed, good quality simplicity. In the case of this vase, the simple trumpet-form shape is functional while not distracting from the main event—the profusion of flowers above. It's tall, too, over 12 inches high. This provides a dramatic elevation, allows plenty of room for stems and ensures a good supply of water to refresh the flowers. And the fairly narrow top rim serves to hold-together the flower stems, creating a naturally dense, luxurious arrangement. The vase was made by Haeger, in Dundee, Illinois, in the 1960's or 1970's. A satiny matte white glaze completes the purity of aesthetic. Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
