Jars are versatile. They’re functional. They’re affordable. And, they’re everywhere. Jars as lights. As candle holders. As vases. As piggy banks. As décor. As cups. Even as tissue holders. They’re subtle, so you might not have noticed, but the jar phenomenon is in full swing, and we’re here for it.

Jars aren’t just popping up in the home. We’re seeing them more and more in restaurants for the same reasons they’re so popular in homes. Versatility, functionality and creativity.
