Pyreness Wood Block, 100 Matches

So freaking cool. I would be hesitant to actually use any of the matches since it seems as more of a sculptural type of thing, but that’s just me.

“To use just break a match off the block and scratch it along the block to light.”

Hermaphrodite Candle Set

I don’t know anyone who would spend $800 on a set of candles, but these certainly aren’t ordinary. I suppose if someone just absolutely loved them beyond belief the price wouldn’t matter so much.

Carousel Candles

I love these. There’s the magical feel, of course, but also they look so delicate as to be a rather special find. Click on the ‘buy it here’ link in order to see them in action.

“Our products are powered by the very candle. Using the heat from the candle it powers a rotary carousel to spin clockwise or anticlockwise. Carousel Candle is reuseable and brings a magic to any room in which it is used.”

Light Candle Holder

I don’t know why these are on sale, but holy, that’s great that they’re under the $50 mark. Again, so simple in design, with interesting materials to give a subtle style. I think they’d finish off a room quite nicely, or maybe they’d be the perfect present for one of your modernist friends?

“Arik Levy’s Light Candle Holder (2007) is a study in restraint, a distinct departure from its Victorian counterparts. An innovative use of materials, the candle holder comes either in white alabaster or black-textured aluminum. When a candle is lit, the alabaster holder captures the light, giving it a translucent quality. Paired together, the Light Candle Holders provide a satisfying material contrast to each other. Nicely weighted, they can be safely transported with one hand using the simple, sizable handle and accommodate standard taper candles (not included).”

T.A.E. 1879 Oil Lamp by Opossum Design

Sure, it’s expensive, but I usually don’t like oil lamps and this one completely changed my mind. I kind of love it.

“Glass hurricane lamp houses an upturned light bulb, ironically converted into oil lamp, suspended by dipping wires. A functional sculpture created in homage to Thomas Alvin Edison’s 1879 unveiling of the world’s first long-lasting electric lamp, which lasted 13.5 hours.”

7″ x 13¾”.

The legna pod votive is made from remnants of the legna lamp.

XYZ Candle Holder

This cool candle holder has multiple arrangement options (stacked or individual) and reminds me of those cool old drawings of ‘architecture of the future’.

“..Elegant dark Wenge wood and cool and sleek aluminum make for a classy and elegant presentation of this new candle holder and the fact that it extends into all three axis leaves you lots of room for experimentation… Get a couple of them and start arranging them in different ways: arrange them back to back, or cascading in size, or turn them into a modernistic setting by stacking them…”

Little Joseph by Maxim Velcovsky

Spooky, bodiless head candle holders by Maxim Velčovský:

“Little Joseph is a hand-painted, porcelain candle holder. We can’t decide if he’s sinister or sweet. Part of that will certainly depend on what you decide to do with his hair. Use dripless candles if you’d like to keep him bald, otherwise, give him pure white locks, beeswax locks, or hair in several shades of the rainbow.”

Made in the Czech Republic.

4X4 Ceramic Cube

I’m not a huge fan of an overly olfactory experience, but I think this is perfect for anyone who is.

“It’s an incense burner. It’s an ashtray. It can hold a taper candle, or a tea light. It’s the four-in-one cube that serves four different functions depending on what side is up. Available in matte black or glossy white, this is a cleverly designed ceramic cube for those who cringe at clutter. Devised by Gualitiero Saachi and made in Italy for Bosa.”
