While big-ticket items like a chic couch and cozy rug are undoubtedly home design staples, when it comes to adding personality to your space, it’s all about the details. Small, thoughtful touches can do wonders in elevating your aesthetic and showcasing your personal style. But where to begin? Ceramic décor pieces are a stylish starting point.
Ceramic pieces definitely aren’t anything new. The craft has been around for centuries, with homes across both time and oceans featuring stoneware pots, dishes, and other special ceramic touches. But now, the sky’s the limit with modern ceramic pieces. With all sorts of styles, colors, and sizes available, ceramic décor is incredibly versatile and unique with many pieces being handmade and one-of-a-kind.
Below, the best ceramic décor to complement your home's style.
Jungalow Ayo Ceramic Wall Hanging by Justina Blakeney
This piece of ceramic décor will bring some much-needed sunshine into your home. Available in both a warm terracotta shade and a crisp white hue, each piece is carefully hand-painted with a joyful sun and comes ready for hanging with a twine loop.
You can also rest assured that this ceramic piece is made in a fair trade facility where crafting traditions are preserved, the local economy is supported, and partners are paid fair wages. Plus, all textiles meet sustainable standards.
Cyan Ceramics Woman Figure Ceramic Vase
Who knew that ceramic décor could be so sensual? Handcrafted from stoneware clay, this beige, 6.5-inch tall ceramic vase features the female figure painted in a gorgeous terracotta hue. While the outside of the vase is left unglazed to show off the texture and feel of the raw clay, the interior boasts a layer of clear glaze so it can hold florals without leaking water. And with every piece being handmade, each one is different with their own unique, beautiful imperfections.
Urban Outfitters Mila Scallop Ceramic Indoor/Outdoor Stool
We’re positively charmed by this earthenware ceramic stool. Courtesy of Urban Outfitters, the pedestal features a scalloped, sunken base that’s artful and feminine, and the piece is available in two matte hues: a delicate, pastel rust and a speckled white finish. Whether you use it as a nightstand, vanity chair, or additional seating around the house, it'll add a lovely touch to any space.
Pottery Barn Kennedy Textured Ceramic Planter on a Wooden Stand
Textures are one of those details that can instantly elevate a ceramic piece and make it totally unique. Just take this Pottery Barn piece for example. Sitting pretty on a pinewood stand, the handmade ceramic planter boasts a beautifully scalloped texture, which lends it a bohemian vibe we just love.
Crafted with materials that are phthalate, BPA, and lead-free, it’s complete with a white glazed finish and is watertight to prevent any leakage when you water your plants. However, there's no drainage hole, so be careful to not overwater or you risk root rot.
BoND x Studio Davka Semi Circle Serving Plate
For a unique addition to your ceramics arsenal, look no further than this semi-circle serving plate. Designed in collaboration with BoND, an architecture and interiors firm, the plate is part of a collection inspired by their East Hampton arched house project.
Handmade and coated with a silky white glaze, the plate is both dishwasher and microwave safe so you can use it with ease. Plus, the chic and minimal design will make your cooking look anything but amateur.
Urban Outfitters Nadwa Ceramic Pendant Light
The right ceramic décor can light up any space—in this case, literally. Hanging from the ceiling, this ceramic pendant light will cast a warm glow over a section of your room, thanks to its deeply domed shape. The ceramic’s natural texture takes center stage here and we love its speckled, light terracotta hue.
The light fixture also features rectangular cutouts to cast a bit more light in the near vicinity. We also love the ceramic pendant pull cord so it can easily—and stylishly— be switched on and off.
Terrain Coil Fruit Bowl
Consider us obsessed with the unexpected, modern shape of this ceramic bowl. Handmade in Brooklyn, New York, a traditional ceramic coiling technique was used to achieve the design that’s both interesting yet understated.
The terracotta ceramic consists of natural materials and it's totally food safe if you need a new spot for fresh fruit. You can even line the bottom of the bowl with a dish or tea towel to instantly repurpose it as a bread basket.
TheArtRoomCeramics Ceramic Black Incense Stick Holder
For ceramic décor that has the potential to smell as good as it looks, check out this handmade incense holder. With sections for both burning a single stick and storage for extra incense, this ceramic piece is functional, but can also simply serve as just a piece of décor.
Thanks to that moody black glaze with subtle white speckles, it’ll look stunning sitting on a desk, dresser, or entryway table. The glaze is lead-free and food safe.
Franca Planter Mug
Handmade in Brooklyn, Franca's ceramic designs each have a unique, one-of-a-kind touch. Just take their planter mug, for example,
These petite planter mugs make for the perfect present for just about anyone on your list—just pop in a small cactus or succulent and it’s ready for gifting. There are seven pretty patterns available, all of which are hand painted on white porcelain ceramic. Finished with a clear gloss interior, the mugs are crafted in Brooklyn, New York by the two female founders of the company that produces plenty of other beautiful ceramic pieces. They also offer local workshops so others can learn to love the craft, too.
SIN Weylyn Candelabra
The classic candelabra just got a modern makeover. Another piece that’s designed and handcrafted in Brooklyn, this stoneware candelabra will bring all the minimalist, trendy vibes to your mantelpiece, side table, or dinner table.
We love the curvy, waved shape of the ceramic and its matte white hue will serve as the perfect canvas for colorful candles. (You can of course stick to white or black tapers if you want to keep with the minimalist aesthetic!)
