Imagine This: Artisan Candles for the Home

Part of one my favorite home décor designers, Jonathan Adler’s manifesto is, “we believe handcrafted tchotchkes are life-enhancing.” I have to agree, and candles are some of my favorite ways to enhance a table or room.

Different types of candles can enhance décor and really make a room.

I love how this candle blends beeswax and hand-carved wax techniques for a tasteful and unique twist on a traditional, neutral-toned candle.

For more of a statement, you an find candles that are adorned with inlaid semi-precious stones, intricate cutouts and appliqués, and/or sculpted and carved using innovative wax working methods. The metallic on these candles touches are classy and eye-catching.

You can even find candles that are inspired by patterns, shapes and colors from nature, or that interpret fabric, fashion, old wood carvings or vintage furniture to showcase a form that has not been seen in wax.

Here are some of these great candles on display at At Market in DeCOR.
