SF designer Kenneth Wingard's O Vases are very modern, but with kind of a retro feel. Their clean lines and simple shapes are really appealing. You can group the handmade, glazed vases by color (white, blue, and brown), or mix 'em up. Either way, think how dramatic they'd look against a solid-colored wall. White vases against a green wall. Blue against a chocolate wall. Or orange. Or. . .you get the idea. $38-$48 at Wingard.
