Flowers are generally considered a pretty, gentle item to bring into the home. They're usually displayed in delicate vases which is why these army tank-inspired flower holders are extremely bizarre.

The Tank U vases were created by Parisian design group, La Tete Au Cube and come in White and Platinum or, even stranger, a Traditional French Floral Pattern.

Each hand made vase is available for $90 at Charles & Marie.
