Our Fave Centerpiece-Worthy Vases

The last two homes I’ve scouted for the mag have had one thing in common: Gorgeous, showstopping arrangements of blooms and branches and greens. And not perfectly coiffed, tightly bunched roses, either. We’re talking chandelier-grazing blooms, leaves as big as your head. The plants that used to be for outdoor-use only are becoming not only the centerpiece of the table, but the focal point of the room. (Style idea to steal: Drew Becher had three huge magnolia branches in a clear glass vase in his dining room. Insane.) So think outside the planter: Bring banana leaves in. Let tall branches touch your light fixture. Fill a grouping of Mason jars with teensy buds. Take the candle out of a lantern and fill it with greens. Here, some top vase picks for centerpieces both big and small, just to get you started.
