There's something so effortlessly chic about matte white ceramics. Arranged in vignettes (with an air plant or three), these minimal pieces add a touch of Scandinavian glamor to any space. Bonus: Matte white vessels blend well with any style, from casual rustic to uber-modern homes. Here are three stellar shops that show the range of possibilities.
