Vase de Printemps - Vase of Springtime
The extraordinary thing about this vase (also known as the Vase d'Avril, or April Vase) is that anyone using it looks as if they have an advanced degree in floral design. Zinc-coated steel bands link the 21 glass tubes which can be arranged in various ways: a long lazy S, a spiral, a circle, short little wiggles; they can even be taken apart to form autonomous arrangements. Our favorite is letting it wander down the center of the table, with the flowers cut about 10” high, so you can chat with your dinner companions. Just a very few flowers and—Voila! —instant elegance. Comes with a handy extra glass tube—just in case. From the extraordinarily creative French design team, Tsé & Tsé.
