As we head towards autumn and the wild flowers start hibernating for the season, it shouldn’t stop you from shopping for vases. Originally a vehicle for housing beautiful blooms, nowadays vases are becoming statement pieces within themselves. A bevy of Scandinavian and international brands are creating pieces that would almost be at home behind glass in a museum, making it the best time to acquire new home décor.

Embrace the playful palette of Copenhagen-based Raawii, or signature architectural silhouettes of Finland's Iittala. If you really want to treat yourself, you could spurge on the work of Swedish artist Hanna Hansdotter whose artful glass sculptures could second as a vase.
