Nothing brings life to a room quite like the vibrant colors and relaxing fragrance of fresh-cut flowers. And nothing complements your flowers better than a stunning, coordinating vase! Up your flower game with vases made for memorable summer bouquets.

Shop some of our favorite vases on Sotheby’s Home, and add some structural, functional art to any surface that could use a visual pick-me-up this summer.

A Victorian Influence

Vase: Victorian Staffordshire Canine Spill Vase
Add a whimsical touch to any flower arrangement with a 19th-century Staffordshire vase. Furry canine figurines and flowers create instant smiles.
Best Bud: Go for a few freesia stems in soft pink for a fun, feminine touch.

Minimalist Elegance

Vase: Kravet Fredrik Vase
Mouth-blown and hand-cut, a minimalist glass vase is the perfect blank canvas for any summer arrangement.
Best Bud: Play with an all-white bouquet of ranunculus and peonies to showcase the monochromatic textures of the flowers and vase.

Flora and Fauna

Vase: Japanese Kutani Square Hand-Painted Vase
A late-20th century vintage Japanese vase with hand-painted birds sets a garden scene before you even add flowers.
Best Bud: Use flowering quince or snip some pretty flowering branches from your own yard to create a tall arrangement.

An Architectural Edge

Vase: Giotto Stoppino Deda Vase
Italian architect Giotto Stoppino’s bright green sculpture meets vase is a bold, modernist statement.
Best Bud: Cut stems of purple foxgloves (or other tall, skinny blossoms like calla lilies) in varying heights to create a swirl of flowers that grow higher as they reach the top of the vase.

Shades of Blue

Vase: Contemporary Metamorphic Vase
This swirling hand-blown art glass vase looks stunning on its own, but add fresh flowers and you’ve got something really special.
Best Bud: Blue hydrangea blooms are magic when you bunch together multiple billowy blooms.
