Generally, when people put something on a pedestal, they want to elevate its status. For example, if you have an expensive sculpture or vase, you probably wouldn’t think twice before putting it on a pedestal. However, a pedestal doesn’t necessarily need to be used only for serious artwork. It can also function as the base for something fun that adds a dash of color or brightness to a room.
Feng Shui Your Home with Pedestals: Multi-colored candles can make a great pedestal display. If you believe in Feng Shui, you might want to put candles of different colors in different parts of the room. Or just put up a cluster of candles in one part of the room to enhance one particular part of your life.
On the other hand, little fountains can also make a great pedestal display. According to Feng Shui, you should have running water on the southern side of a room if you want to attract money into your life. Even if you don’t believe in Feng Shui, a small fountain can look very pretty if placed atop a pedestal at the entrance to your home.
Pedestals for Arts and Crafts: If you’re into arts and crafts, you can also use pedestals to display the things you’ve made that you’re particularly proud of. Why put away that lovely pot you made in ceramics class where no one can see it? Instead, give your talent the recognition it deserves by placing it on top of a pedestal. If you took glass-blowing instead, pick out one of your best efforts and put it on a pedestal.
Pedestals for Travel Souvenirs: Souvenirs from different countries can also make great pedestal arrangements. That little Eiffel tower or Big Ben replica will let your friends and relatives know that you are well-traveled. Plus, you’ll also have a reminder of those great times in a prominent place in your home.
