12 Artfully Carved Candles That Double as Décor Objects
An artfully designed, decorative candle can provide more than a source of ambient lighting—it can create visual interest in a tablescape, too. "A candle is the perfect object to be a centerpiece on the table," says designer and wax artist Lex Pott. Thought candles are small, the right one can really brighten up any area of your home. "They give off cozy and intimate light and help create good memories," Pott adds.
Of course, the more interesting a candle looks, the greater impact it makes in a space. "My personal favorite is to mix a neon colored candle with a natural one, such as royal vanilla," says Sonia Marcinek, founder of NÉOS Candlestudio. "It is such a statement piece." In the market for a candle that moonlights as an eye-catching art object? From sculptural styles to color-blocked iterations and more, here are a dozen decorative candles that are anything but ordinary.
