iittala Aalto Turquoise Vases
A bright turquoise hue is the newest color addition to iittala’s glassware collection for 2012. A deeper shade of blue than the light blue of 2011, the turquoise shade grows bolder as it rounds the folds of the vase, and becomes more subdued the further out it stretches. Whether used for function or merely decoration, this beautiful vase will add charm to any room.
Unveiled at the 1937 Paris World’s Fair, the Aalto vase quickly became an international sensation. Its clean silhouette is simple yet elegant, making it a perfect adornment for any room in your home. More than just an accessory, this vase is a piece of art that you will treasure for years to come.
