Perhaps the first bottles ever to get recycled as decor: Outsize French and Italian wine bottles—known as demijohns, damigiana, and carboys—have long been put to use as sculptural objects. An easy way to add spring color to a room, they look equally at home in a clean-lined or rustic setting. Vintage demijohns and damigiana (characterized by their round bodies and small necks) and carboys (identifiable by their straight sides) are widely available. Here are some examples we’ve been admiring.
