The candle holder has been around for centuries. And despite the modern convenience of electric lights and lamps, they remain crucial for bringing ambience to homes and special occasions. Want mood lighting in an instant? Simply light some candles in a holder of your preference. They make bath time bliss, add a sense of occasion and generally warm the heart and soul.
Of course, in the dining room, classic candle stands − such as a candelabra – bring warmth and old-world opulence to a sumptuous feast. They match the cutlery, bringing harmony to all the silvery glints of the tableware.
A candelabra has multiple arms. It can be traditional or contemporary, although it is often associated with luxury and decadence of times gone by. Did you know, that ancient Greeks and Romans loved a candelabra?
If you’re hosting a special occasion, you can’t go wrong with a candelabra amongst flowers as your dining table centrepiece.
Candle lights large or small make great gifts. Throughout the home, tea lights add pretty patterns of light. If they’re scented candles, the aroma adds to the welcoming, romantic atmosphere they create. Tea light holders range from small, glass, votives to tall and chunky ceramic pieces – and anything in between. This makes changing the look of your table setting according to the celebration super simple.
For lights that last longer, larger shapes can be displayed in unique hurricane lamps or lanterns, for an effect evocative of times gone by. What’s great about them is that they work inside and outside. Got a patio or outdoor dining area with chalet furniture? Add some to enjoy magical evenings out in the fresh air.
