If you like filling your house with clever, designy objects, then boy, do I have a site for you. The website Huset-shop.com has a wide variety of vases and lampshades that keep you dropping designers names left and right when people come visit your home.
I thought the vases above were kind of handy as a sculpural object since they could be either a vase or a candle holder, and look like they can be reconfigured into a different order.
Interesting coat (or other object) hooks.
The trees, above, are a coat rack. Decorative and handy, too.
