Danish heritage brand Kähler is well-known for its simple yet beautiful and functional style. Their tableware, candleholder or vases grace almost every Danish home.
One of their most popular styles, the Omaggio Vase, was created in 2008 by Stilleben design team Ditte Reckweg and Jelena Schou Nordentoft. Combining a classic silhouette with modern, fun stripes, the Omaggio is ubiquitous in both classic and quirky homes across the country.
The latest iteration of the style is clear with laser-etched stripes. We love a clear vase because it’s so versatile. An opaque vase can really only be used in a traditional way, but with clear you can play with proportion, visibility and size. When Kähler asked us to style the new selection, we were excited to see how we could subvert the usual bouquet of flowers.
To recreate this look, all you need is a monochrome bouquet of your choice. Pour water into the vase up to the first set of lines. Separate the leaves from the flowers, measure and cut the flowers to stand just below the neck of the vase, and gently place the flowers one by one the rest around the inside of the vase. Finish the arrangement by slotting the leaves in the centre of the bouquet. Voila! The perfect in-vase bouquet.
Because the vase is clear and your bouquet is a single color, you can experiment with textile and pattern, depending on where you’d like to place the vase – we loved these blues: the deep royal blue and silver sky blue. We’re very into the Winter-moodiness-on-the-edge-of-Spring atmosphere.
