Crazy for CandlesticksApril 19, 2012
A quick stroll around the shop yesterday and I spotted a variety of candlesticks and candelabra that I thought would make a fun, visual post. Taper candles are so elegant, they really spiff up any room they grace. The holder adding much visual interest as well. Here are a few I captured on my walk.
Simple, clear and surprisingly heavy.
Vintage turned wood is a particular favorite. I find many of these on buying trips to England.
I think they work well massed together in varying shapes and sizes. I like the eclectic quality of when they are mis-matched.
I often use vintage pages from old books to help steady the candle in the holder + I really like the look of it.
Again, having a variety grouped together is a look I am quite fond of. It makes for a pretty quick start to a collection.
The Dunes and Duchess pieces we stock still make my heart sing each day I walk by them.
The bulbous look to this one with the unfinished wood just makes it a real gem.
And lastly, sterling silver candelabra we found on our trip to Charleston & Savannah. Singly, paired up–I adore these in any combination.
Tomorrow, colorful candlesticks get added to the mix too.
