The Balloon Vase Brings Inflatable Fun to Interior Decor

A vase doesn't have to be a hollow monolithic receptacle, and the Balloon Vase demonstrates how a little deviation can be good for the soul. Sophisticated stem holders can get stuffy, while this playful piece of home decor lightens the mood of your living space.

Designer Corey Green won the Savannah College of Art & Design and ShelterPop Challenge with this whimsical vessel, made from a bowed frame of acrylic which braces the effervescent rubber amphora in place. It's easy enough to swap the color of the flower holder, which can become yellow, orange, black or white, depending on your preference. One of the best features of the Balloon Vase is that a bulbous form indicates that you've poured in enough water, and a shriveled shape encourages you to add more.
