I believe in good design for the masses. Designers sometimes tend to look down on items that are mass produced. But sometimes, mass produced items surprise. They can be beautiful and affordable. After all, every one deserves beauty in their home, even on a tight budget. Here's a good example. Have you seen the beautiful Shane Powers ceramic bud vases from West Elm?
These two are my favorites. I love the simplicity of the shapes. At $16.00, they are very affordable. I hope I can order before they run out!
