I like to decorate my home with vases. My living room is quite minimalist: white walls, grey carpet, white and black fireplace, white and black speakers, white furniture, grey dinning table and an ivory & dark grey sofa. I would have bought a white sofa, but the only light colour faux leather sofa that was available in their range was ivory.
I prefer adding colour with accessories and flowers. My favourite type of vases are handmade, as you might know from the post about Rose Dickenson’s vases (I bought a 3rd one from her this year). I like that they aren’t exactly the same, they have character and there was a lot of passion behind their creation.
I fell in love with this Agnes Vase at Normann Copenhagen* from the moment I saw it. I though it will be great with my decor. There are 7 sizes available and I picked the one that is 20 cm high as the other vases I have are slim and it can be tricky when I have a big bunch of flowers. I think the vase with the red Amaryllis flowers looks amazing.
The designer is called Agnes Fries. I searched her when I was making this post and I saw her designs, I like all of them, they are stunning. She graduated The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2005 and now she makes her vases by hand in her workshop in China.
The Agnes vase is made out of white porcelain and it’s decorated with intense black brush strokes. As the strokes are made by hand, the vases are slightly different. I like that a lot.
The vase is sold by Normann Copenhagen. They are a Danish design company that have original, contemporary and unique designs in their range. It was established in 1999 and their collections include furniture, lighting, textiles and home accessories.
The vase was from LOVEThESIGN, an Italian online boutique founded in 2012 in Milan. The delivery charge isn’t very high, I checked for this vase is just shy of £9. Their price is very good compared with other websites from the UK, so, if you want to wait a bit until you receive the order, it’s worth getting it from Italy. It took 5 days to receive the parcel and I think it’s fast considering that it comes from another country.
There are many interesting items on their website. I can’t say that my experience with them was 100% positive as another thing in the parcel was damaged.
