Definition: Urn

Do you put your vase on a pedestal? If so, it might be an urn instead. An urn is essentially an over-sized vase that's mounted on a stand.

Different types of urns are used in a number of ways in home decorating: Very ornate designs are often displayed as art, and they can also be used as planters both inside and outside. You'll also find urns in buffet lines and dining rooms; when equipped with spigots, they are used to serve coffee and other beverages.
