Why focus on Guaxs, then, if these principles apply to all vase decor?

Put simply: Guaxs showcases beauty like no other vase. Guaxs is renowned for its handmade, mouth-blown glass vases crafted in Germany, each reflecting unparalleled craftsmanship and artistic appeal. And Maison and Tavola is the premier source for Guaxs in America.




Tip #1: Vases should be as beautiful empty as they are with flowers.

The beauty of Guaxs vases lies not only in their ability to showcase vibrant blooms but also in their captivating presence when left empty. A well-chosen vase can serve as a standalone centerpiece, adding elegance to any room. Here are three recommended Guaxs vases for this purpose:

Tip #2: Use vases to greet guests with cheer in the entryway.

To create a welcoming atmosphere that exudes warmth and hospitality from the moment your guests arrive, consider using vases to greet them with cheer in the entryway. Select vases that complement your decor style and fill them with fresh flowers or verdant foliage. You may opt to place them on a console table or even on the floor to make a bold statement. This simple yet elegant touch can elevate the ambiance of your home and set the tone for a memorable gathering. It is important, however, to choose flowers that are not overly fragrant, as some guests may be sensitive to strong scents.

 Tip #3: Pair vases of varying heights – contrast is pleasing to the eye.

Incorporating vases of varying heights into your decor is a simple yet impactful way to add visual interest and elevate the ambiance of your space. The interplay of contrasting shapes and sizes can captivate the eye and imbue your surroundings with a sense of depth and dimension. To achieve this look, consider grouping vases of differing heights together on a table or shelf, or placing them in distinct areas of the room for a cohesive and balanced effect. It is vital to select vases that harmonize with one another in terms of color and style to achieve a polished and sophisticated aesthetic.

Tip #4: Empty vases work well displayed in odd numbers and different heights.

As alluded to in Tip #1, empty vases are a versatile decorative element that can be used to create a breathtaking display in any room. To create an eye-catching arrangement, it is best to display them in odd numbers and varying heights, as this arrangement is known to be visually pleasing to the eye. By placing them on a mantel, bookshelf, or console table, you can transform any space into a work of art. Grouping them together on a tray or platter is another way to create a stunning vignette that will leave your guests in awe. With empty vases, the possibilities are endless, and the results are always awe-inspiring.
