Pretty Things That Caught My Eye - The Candlestick Edition

"Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick.
Jack jump over,
The candlestick"


I have been casting my oh so persnickety eyes about the place to find some fabulous candlesticks, holders, keeper and the like to share with you so I bid you;


Welcome to my Candlestick Edition.


Let's start with some Finnish Class! This is the "Festivo" Candlestick range by Timo Sarpaneva 1966. Looks so clean and classical, such elegance can never go out of style.

Moving on to acrylic, this is the "Ghost Candelabra" designed by Jon Russell.
I like this playful idea and prefer it in Clear rather than the host of other colours it is available in, which includes red!



You know I cannot help but give people the spooks sometimes and I think this is something that I may purchase in the future for my library (in my dream home that I have yet to build).
This is "Little Joseph" designed by Maxim Velcovsky.

More Details Here!





Now back to a name that I cannot help but fling around my blog. Reiko Kaneko, I can't help it! I just love her stuff at the moment (remember my gold lip tea cup? She did that!).

Another name in design that I really like, Black+Blum! This is their "Loop" candelabra and what gets me is the simple fluid design. I like things that have a nice flow to them and this fits that bill. I have my eye on the gold one!

Finally, for a little something from one of my most favourite designers in the universe ever;

"Fly Candle Fly" by Ingo Maurer. Candles suspended on threads of light, how magical, how beautiful...swoooooooooon.

I think that is enough eye candy from my sweetie bag for one day. I do hope you have enjoyed gazing at these pretty things with me.




DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE CANDLE HOLDER?
As always please do drop me a comment, I love hearing your thoughts and ideas and random observations.



Before anyone asks, I have not been asked to promote any of the above designers on my blog! (Get real; I have a tiny readership). I just felt the need to share some pictures of things that I feel are well made and pay tribute to fertile imaginations and creative excellence. Such things will always grab my attention for they allow people like me to express their personality through everyday objects.

  2. My favorite is "Little Joseph" ...I'd love to own a set of those one day! I don't currently own a set of candlestick holders. My obsession is more with clocks. Interesting clocks. :)

  4. Do I have to choose?

    I like the morbidity of Maxim Velcovsky "litte Joseph"..

    but how lovely are those floating candles from Ingo Maurer over your head...I would instantly drape whimsical pillows on the floor and look to the beauty of the light (with a slight bit of risks of the wax dripping...)So Maurer it is...

  5. LOL the baby heads are awesome! But the hanging ones are by far the coolest to me. No real candlesticks here. I tend to use votives or jar candles a lot! LOL!
