4. Statement Centrepieces
We love a striking centrepiece, especially when it comes with an ethical background. This recycled glass temple cub bowl and lama mermaid vase from eco-furniture brand TREE are totally unique, thanks to the artisanal handblown glass technique which create a series of naturally occurring bubbles and variations that add to their characterful, one-of-a-kind look. Mixing leafy tones of browns and greens, these ornaments are the perfect way to inject some seasonal colour into your home.
