Decorative Glass Flowers For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are several options of decorative glass flowers available for sale. Frequently made of glass, blown glass and art glass, all decorative glass flowers available were constructed with great care. We have 649 antique and vintage decorative glass flowers in-stock, while there are 75 modern editions to choose from as well. Decorative glass flowers have been made for many years, and versions that date back to the 19th Century alongside those produced as recently as the 21st Century. Decorative glass flowers are generally popular furniture pieces, but Mid-Century Modern, Modern and Art Nouveau styles are often sought at 1stDibs. Many decorative glass flowers are appealing in their simplicity, but Fratelli Toso, VG-VGnewtrend and Barovier&Toso produced popular decorative glass flowers that are worth a look.

How Much are Decorative Glass Flowers?

Finding the Right Decorative Objects for You

Every time you move into a house or an apartment — or endeavor to refresh the home you’ve lived in for years — life for that space begins anew. The right home accent, be it the simple placement of a decorative bowl on a shelf or a ceramic vase for fresh flowers, can transform an area from drab to spectacular. But with so many materials and items to choose from, it’s easy to get lost in the process. The key to styling with decorative objects is to work toward making a happy home that best reflects your personal style. 

Ceramics are a versatile addition to any home. If you’ve amassed an assortment of functional pottery over the years, think of your mugs and salad bowls as decorative objects, ideal for displaying in a glass cabinet. Vintage ceramic serveware can pop along white open shelving in your dining area, while large stoneware pitchers paired with woven baskets or quilts in an open cupboard can introduce a rustic farmhouse-style element to your den.

Translucent decorative boxes or bowls made of an acrylic plastic called Lucite — a game changer in furniture that’s easy to clean and lasts long — are modern accents that are neutral enough to dress up a coffee table or desktop without cluttering it. If you’re showcasing pieces from the past, a vintage jewelry box for displaying your treasures can spark conversation. Where is the jewelry box from? Is there a story behind it?

Abstract sculptures or an antique vessel for your home library can draw attention to your book collection and add narrative charm to the most appropriate of corners. There’s more than one way to style your bookcases, and decorative objects add a provocative dynamic. “I love magnifying glasses,” says Alex Assouline, global vice president of luxury publisher Assouline, of adding one’s cherished objects to a home library. “They are both useful and decorative. Objects really elevate libraries and can also make them more personal.”

To help with personalizing your space and truly making it your own, find an extraordinary collection of decorative objects on 1stDibs.
