Vases Through A Modern Lens

Vases Through A Modern Lens

While vases are usually associated with flowers and other colourful décor items, Nestasia vases are not just décor items but pieces of art that are meant to beautify untouched corners of a house, workspace, or an outdoor setting. One often tends to perceive vases as flower pots or planters, but with the progression of modernism as an art movement, vases are being accommodated as artefacts in various sectors of the design industry.  When it comes to interior styling of living spaces, vases have become a design statement in themselves and an integral part of the whole process. From minimalist styling that can include glass or metals, to different aesthetics which are earthy, unique, modern, and include experimental colours, modern vases tend to find a place for themselves- owing to their adaptive nature.

Neutral coloured vases, pastel vases, and colourful vases come in unique shapes and textures that are unseen and super contemporary. The history of vases goes back to the times of Egyptian civilisation, when vases were made for decorative as well functional purposes. However, the Greeks took vases one step higher and converted them into beautiful pieces of art which were used as décor items.

Since history has a habit of repeating itself, at Nestasia we came up with a thought of including vintage vases in the collection. The vases have earthy as well as neutral colour tones which can be an ideal fit for any household that is based on a vintage aesthetic. Anyone who is fond of historical art works that can feel like a time machine in a modern set up, would be very excited to experiment with these.

The unseen shape of the vases, available in a wide variety of a colours, are capable of enchanting anyone with their uniqueness. While there is always an option of clubbing these vases with artificial or fresh flowers, the pieces are a definition of art in themselves. Hence, they tend to stand out, even when they are used without any flowers or planters.

Nestip: Dry flowers and leaves can be coupled along with the vases to enhance the experience.

The vases look beautiful when paired with artificial flowers like orchids, wild flowers, peonies, hydrangeas, or dry flowers. Owing to their similar designs and aesthetics, the vases can be clubbed together to form a set, or can be bought independently if that matched with the aesthetics and colour tones of your house.

Browse through your favourite artificial flowers and club them with vases as per the aesthetics of your house or workspace. For some great ideas, watch the video below to explore the modern hues of flowers and vases.

We also have vases with handles which give them a very ancient and vintage look, making them stand out in any modern setup. Some of them have vases on one side, and some have handles on both the sides, giving them an avant-garde element. The geometric and abstract designs are quite playful and can be used at any setting where some uncommon experimentation is being tried.

The handles of the vases also make them easy to pick and place. The hooped handles on each side of the vases give them the superpowers of being used as hanging vases as well. The vases can be tied with a strong string and can be hung near doors, windows, or around the curtains.

For everyone who likes playing with hues and textures, colourful vases would be just the right pick for you. Available in modern hues and contemporary shapes, the vases can seamlessly blend with the colour tones of your house or workspace. When clubbed with artificial flowers like hydrangeas, gypsies, or peony roses, the vases look stunning and eye-catching.

White vases, green vases, pink vases, yellow vases, and orange vases that come in common shapes, are apt for being a part of any corner of the house. With woods being the inspiration of these colourful vases, they become apt for being places in a terrace garden, or a balcony. Infact, for everyone who likes to keep greens inside their houses, the vases are just the right fit.

When it came to combining woods with ceramics, we were as skeptical as you might be. But the results for these vases available in shades of mauve and red, were out of this world. The wooden element complements the vases beautifully with a dash of contemporary elements which are subtle yet speak for themselves.

Inspired from the hues of the sky and ocean, combinations of blues, whites, and greys are totally capable of catching the eye in a moment. The vases are super modern yet elegant in their appearance. The subtle cool tones are completely contrasted by some unusual bend or curve in a vase, which gives it a modern look.

Our wide range of artificial flowers can blend with all our vases. Contrasting colours can be clubbed with vases for a stark, and eye-catching look. However, if you’re someone who likes everything to be colour coordinated, then look for similar colour tones of artificial flowers which can seamlessly marry the aesthetics and colour tones of the vases.

Nestip: If you want to experiment with something different then wild flowers, twigs, or dry leaves can be the best option for a modern yet minimalist aesthetic. Different shapes and sizes of dried leaves like dried bamboo leaves, wheat grass, coconut palm, aveca palm, and wild twigs give a height extension to your vases, enhancing their modern look with a rustic touch. In fact, there can be some exciting experimentation using faux flowers as well. Instead of placing a bouquet or a bunch of flowers, single sticks of contrasting coloured artificial flowers can be placed inside vases for a minimalist look.

Modernism as an art movement, was, is, and will always be about breaking the monotony. It has been about steering away from the normal. The collection of designer vases come in avant-garde shapes with a contemporary twist. There is a certain ‘never-seen-before' element present in each and every piece that forms the collection. The collection as a whole is exciting as well as thoughtful- making them all pieces of art.

With the trend of pastel colours becoming a rage in not just the design, but the fashion industry, pastels have very subtly seeped in all of our lifestyles. The colours are light, breezy, and airy- something that brings out a dreamy and surreal aesthetic which is very close to the aesthetic of Nestasia.

So, how could we miss out on some pastel coloured vases in the collection, right?

Pastel vases come with light colour tones of peaches, pinks, and whites, which are very pleasing to the eye. Clubbing these vases with artificial flowers of pastel colour tones like chrysanthemums, peonies, or hydrangeas can elevate the whole setting.

The pastel coloured vases are ideal to be used by placing them on a dining table as a centerpiece, placing them on a mantelpiece, using them as décor pieces on a side table, or for gifting someone who is fond of pastel colours or has a matching aesthetic in their house or workspace. The flowers can be easily clubbed with light coloured pastel vases to make a stunning gift.

Nestip: Some of our smaller sized vases are stunners at multitasking as well. The designer vases which come with a ceramic finish and a modern shape, also double up as a cutlery stand or a pen stand. Placing them on a dining table as a cutlery stand or as a pen stand on a study table can add some beautiful modern elements in the setting.

We also have a collection of vases that have different impressions of faces on them. These abstract vases were inspired from different human emotions that one goes through in their entire life. There’s an angry face, a peaceful face, Buddha face, stern faces with necks- all imprinted on the surface of vases. These vases are designer handmade pieces which bring the elements of a face in a super contemporary way.

These handcrafted face vases can not only be a part of a modern household or a workspace, but if you’re someone who is a regular meditator or a spiritual person- the vases can be placed inside the meditation room or temple to add some peaceful décor. The vases can be clubbed with fresh flowers to add some pleasing fragrance in the room.

NestipIf you think that fresh flowers can be a little too much of work you, considering the fact that they need to be replaced every other day- you can go ahead with our colourful artificial flowers and spray a bunch with some aroma oil or perfume. Our flowers can stay fresh forever and can be easily cleaned using wet wipes.

The face vases have patterns on their surfaces which brings out an impression of a face, giving them a 3D effect. The faces look like real faces and are expressions of real human emotions. These vases can be clubbed with creepers and climbers. Once the planter starts growing inside them, they’ll end up giving an impression of the face’s hair. Pairing them with our artificial flowers like dancing orchids, gypsies, or phalaenopsis can give a very similar look.

While the colours of these vases are concerned, the bright ones like reds, yellows, greens, pinks, and blues, stand out because of their surprising and eye catching colours are amazing when it comes to styling them with flowers. However, the subtle greys, browns, blacks, beiges, whites, and other combinations of neutral colours tend to do well with settings which have some metallic elements. Some gold or silver elements when clubbed along with these neutral shades, can bring in a very luxurious vibe to the whole setting.

The vases have different coloured variants which can all be clubbed together to create a set. These handcrafted vases when placed together as art pieces on a table or a mantelpiece, they complement each other so beautifully that picking a favourite piece from the set can be a tough job.
