One of the drawbacks of balloons or beach balls is that they’re temporary; the helium eventually leaks out or the seams burst, squashing the fun. But Belgium-based Home Studyo came up with a way to add the playful touch of inflatable objects to your home without worrying about the air escaping. Cast in sturdy ceramic, the studio’s Blow Up collection adds a joyful, bouncy illusion to homewares often associated with fragility. Available in five colors, the vases, pitchers, and mirrors have names like “Emily” and “Pierre,” which add an inviting touch to personal spaces and social gatherings alike.

You can add a piece or two to your own collection on Home Studyo’s website, and find more on Instagram.
