If someone brings you a bouquet and asks where to put it, is your response: “Any place will do?” Well, then, this article is not for you.  But if, contrarily, the idea of receiving the perfect bouquet is as exciting as where it will be placed, then you’re in for a treat. Nest Casa believes that a good vase is as appealing when empty as it when filled with a lush floral arrangement. To that end, we gathered 20 of the best luxury vases that add class and visual interest to your home.

The Vase’s Rich Past

The word “vase” is borrowed directly from the Latin word “vase,” which means “vessel.” The earliest vases to be discovered date back to the Bronze Age, when they stored everything from grains to wine to essential oils. Their rounded shapes suggest that they were made on a spinning pottery wheel, documented in Mesopotamia as far back as 3000 B.C.

The Egyptians received silver vases from Crete around 3100 B.C.—and history indicates that they were the first to use them for decoration and flowers. Still, top honors for décor go to the Greeks, whose famous red clay and black vases were not only highly beautiful but were also used as a means of storytelling. Today, daily life in ancient Greece is primarily known through these treasures. Over time, artists have embraced the vase as they have the canvas as a place to express beauty, emotion, and craft.
