If you think ashtrays are just for the smokers, think again! Ashtrays can be a fun decor element that can add so much character to your living space. Looking for ideas on how to best use vintage ashtrays? They make for a fetching bowl for keys or for a small bowl by the desk for loose change. They serve the purpose and still keep the place looking sharp. Where do we sign up? Retro ashtrays in popping colors will be a small, fun element that are fun as well as classy. Want to add an interesting twist to your room? Mount your antique ashtrays on the wall in place of ceramics — they will be an eccentric and innovative choice that will leave your friends gasping in awe. We do love a good conversation starter. A large ashtray can also be an accent element. Place it on a credenza or a beautifully polished table for a classy decor element. So the next time you see vintage ashtrays for sale, don’t hold back. A designer ashtray can also make for a great gift for the office desk. Not sure which would be the best possible option? We’d say that an old glass ashtray can be a safe option to gift. It has the charm of a timeless piece of furniture and is portable enough to be moved around. Can’t decide if you want ashtrays or something more classic (maybe gorgeous glassware?) on your credenzas?
