Winter requirement numero uno? Lots and lots of candles. I’ve developed a bit of a crush on modernist taper candleholders lately and this time of year with longer, chilly nights seems exactly the right moment to share some favorites. I’d love to see them in a mass cluster down the center of a table, across a mantel, on a kitchen counter or even grouped on a coffee table. The options are endless and sure to make a statement. I have a few sets of vintage taper holder (these are my favorite) but I’ve got my eye on this set of three Näsvis candlesticks from Ikea…with a $5 price tag, I would buy several sets and spray paint them gold or some other striking high gloss color. Magic.
