1. Arrange Your Flowers—Two Ways
Not all flower arrangements were created equal. A Chinese-style presentation typically takes a more minimalist route, compared to the fuller look of a western-style bouquet. This vase will allow for versatility, whichever style you go with this Mid-Autumn Festival.
Part of a limited edition collection between chinoiserie homeware and fashion label Shanghai Tang with Chinese crafts and home decor brand Mooyee, the vase features two openings. One side has a narrow mouth, and when flipped upside down, there’s a wide mouth—a smart design that accommodates different styles of botanical arrangements.
The patterns on the vase pay homage to Qing dynasty imperial gardens, complete with a seal design inspired by what was used by the 1700s emperor Qianlong. The story goes that Qianlong would, quite literally, stamp his imperial seal of approval on art he enjoyed.
