There’s nothing short or stout about Janus et Cie’s immaculate, whimsical decorative teapot. Inspired by the beauty and complexity of Japanese gardens, the ever-chic furniture design company dreamed up Flourish, a ceramic vessel draped in floral and foliate forms. The teapot rests under a glass case, an exquisite, perpetually blooming landscape. Good luck finding matching cups.

As a floral designer and stylist, I’m always on the lookout for  inspiration for my work. I never pass up an opportunity to find new ideas for arrangements or interiors; I’m constantly combing through New York’s green markets and devouring classic books and films. So when I traveled to Amsterdam, Netherlands, last fall, I tore myself away from the city’s famed flowers and gardens and visited the collection of Dutch Master still lifes at the famed Rijksmuseum.

Art + Botany: The Tulip Vase

The year is 1634, and you live in Holland. If social status is any concern, you're looking to acquire the country's most conspicuous symbol of wealth: a tulip bulb.

You can't very well stick your botanic gold in any old glass jar—you'll need a special way to showcase your new luxury flowers.
