You don’t have to smoke cigarettes (or, um, other things) to enjoy a nice-looking ashtray. These days the coolest, most design-focused ashtrays can be used to house anything from air plants and jewelry to keys and spare change. Heck, you can even use ’em as objets d’art by throwing one on top of a pile of coffee-table books. We went looking for the best of the bunch, the ones that look like they came from a design boutique and cost a pretty penny, but actually won’t put you back more than $40 on Amazon.
