You’ve heard of wearing your heart on your sleeve, but how about showcasing your bum on your mantlepiece? It might sound a bit odd, but that’s just what everyone who’s jumping on the bandwagon as part of the trend for body vases is doing – and actually, it looks pretty darn good.
Ceramic and glass vases inspired by the female form have been rising in popularity for several months, and shopping app LIKEtoKNOW.it is now reporting a 3,000 per cent spike in searches for the shapely accessories as we all look for increasingly creative ways to update the space we’re spending a lot of time in during lockdown.
Largely pegged to the incredible demand for Anissa Kermiche‘s cult Love Handles vase, which depicts the lower half of woman’s body, there are body-shaped vases popping up all over Instagram feeds everywhere, either filled with beautiful blooms or as statement pieces in their own right.
And it’s not just bottoms – boob vases are also having a moment, with figures of all shapes and sizes being celebrated, with dozens of designers on sites like Etsy sharing their own unique take on the trend.
Inspired to add one to your collection? Here’s our pick of the best, with prices starting from £25. The background of your next Zoom call just got a whole lot more interesting…
