The delightful Neue Galerie has an interesting philosophy - take the works and designs of the old masters and recreate them for modern buyers. Many of the products are pretty aspirational. That $55,000 Chandelier is lovely, but we won't be buying something like that for quite some time. That's why we were thrilled to find the Ivory Enameled Hoffman Vase ($210), originally designed by Austrian architect and consumer goods designer Josef Hoffman in 1905. Why reinvent the wheel? Or in this case, the vase.
