Greek style handled vases are the homeware trend stealing the limelight right now

Posted by for Life

They’re chic, stylish and even available on the high street - these are the handled vases to add to your interiors wish list.

If you’ve got to the point where the vase you choose is just as important as the flowers you put in them, be prepared to appreciate this new trend. 

Handled vases are so good, you’ll want to keep them as a showpiece in your home, whether there are flowers in them or not. The ancient Greeks used these double handed vessels (traditionally know as amphoras) to store oil, milk and wine. Now, though, they’re springing up all over the interiors sites as the latest must-have home accessory.

Of course there are many different modern day adaptations, with different shapes, sizes and handles coming into play. Take a look at social media consultant Candace Marie’s home (above) and you’ll spot the black handled vase. They’re fast becoming the home accessory du jour. With Anissa Kermiche’s ‘Love Handles’ double handled bum vase now an iconic cult buy, we’re not surprised these are popular too.

Greek inspired vases are appearing all over the high street, with H&M Home, Zara Home and Cos all have offering their own versions. We’ve picked the best handled vases for you to get your hands on.
