How does an ancient shape that’s wowed us for centuries look so at home in the Louvre—and our living room? In sleek black ceramic, the Cyclades Vase gets its artifact vibes from female idols found on a group of islands in the Aegean Sea, well, a long, long time ago. No need to enshrine this one though: it’ll look just lovely on your nightstand with a sprig of greenery or propping up books on a shelf.
