Interior design trend: 9 vases shaped like heads and faces for characterful decor

Posted by for Homeware

This unique ceramic trend will give your home a dose of personality. Here are nine of our favourite head vases to shop right now.

When it comes to beautiful vases, we don’t discriminate – we love them all. Minimalist, wonky-shaped, inspired by history, brightly coloured, patterned or plain, there are so many options and all of them add something different. 

If you really want to make a statement, though, and give your home a real dose of character, then why not try the trend which sees vases transformed into human form? We’re not talking about bums and boobs, although this has been a huge ceramic trend, and one we’re still very keen on. These vases represent faces, heads and features, which offer personality and more often than not, have a deeper meaning. 

What we really love about this trend, though, is that unlike other vessels these vases aren’t simply a place to put flowers. Oh no, these vases are part of the arrangement and become half of the picture, as flowers and plants come to look like floral headdresses on these ceramic visages. 

So, bring your decor to life and invest in this unique vase trend.
