What exactly belongs in your reading corner? Well, any book nook needs a comfortable armchair placed near your stocked bookshelf, and it wouldn’t hurt to have a decorative item like a houseplant or floor lamp. If your bookshelf has open space, this viral vase definitely belongs in your reading room.

Abigail Lorraine posted a video to TikTok of her book-shaped acrylic vase, and its charming shape has undoubtedly received a lot of attention. In the video, Lorraine fills the vase with pink tulips and tucks it beside a stack of books in her kitchen.

The vase — clearly inspired by literature — can serve as a table’s centerpiece or eye-catching countertop item, and the multi-functional product is an ideal addition to any bookshelf. They’re also a thoughtful gift for the book lover or librarian in your life.

As one TikTok user said, “I’m trying to not be influenced but this is definitely a need,” and for your fresh bouquet of flowers, it’s absolutely a need.

Although the clear vase that Lorraine posted is currently out of stock, there’s plenty of similar ones on Amazon and Etsy. The transparent version of the vase ($22) is cute, but it also comes in dark brown, dark red, and blue. Depending on the one that you buy, your vase may even have a different book title, like on these charming ceramic versions.

Available on Amazon, the collection of vases come in three sizes: Collected Curiosities ($22), A Compendium of Flowers ($23), and The Writer’s Companion ($18). As if the range of colors and sizes weren’t enough, the largest vase features a quote by Oscar Wilde on the back: “With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?”

After all, no room is truly complete without the presence of a book, so book it to Amazon and allow this vase to add a bit of joy to your space.
