Blooming pretty

There are basic rules to choosing vases, one being that the receptacle should be half the height of the flowers it holds, another that the shape of the arrangement should reflect that of the container. Then you have to think of colour combinations.

Dishwasher safe

In a master stroke that will literally make other chandeliers pale in comparison, Schonbek's Da Vinci chandelier (below) can be loaded into a dishwasher to slough off grime - apparently a world first.
