We adore multifunctional pieces. And lovely ones are even better. The Vase de Printemps, or April Vase, by French designers Tse & Tse is made of 21 glass tubes which can be interlocked in different combinations by zinc-coated steel pieces. You can create a long curving shape or a long line for a large table or sideboard or window sill. . . or form a ring of flowers. . . or just use them as a bunch of simple, separate vases. Available for $198 at The Gardener.
