Posts Tagged ‘industrial candleholder’

Several years ago one of my sister’s gave me an absolutely spectacular candleholder.  Bought in London and weighing in at almost 15kg’s (it’s solid cast iron and at the time was packaged in it’s own wooden box), she’d brought it back for me as hand luggage!!  Her efforts were well worth it as it’s my go to holder when I’m entertaining or on those nights when I just need a little extra something special.

More recently I loaned it to a friend for an art installation, the success of which saw my candelabra touring Australia.  Keen to get it back, I sourced him a new one and at the same time sourced a few extra – one for him, one for Joost, one for the shop and one for you!

Brutalist and industrial, stylish yet functional the Tom Dixon Spin Candelabra is a statement piece which takes its inspiration from the robust components of bridges and engines from the Victorian era.  An inverted mobile holding 5 candles (choose between tapers, tealights or Solid Pillars – or mix them up), the arms spin allowing you to direct light where you’d like it.

Height: 55cm (21.6″), Width 105cm (41.3″)

Coming in at just over $1,000 I appreciate that the pricing makes it a very special piece indeed (and that I have a VERY generous sister… or she’s allaying her guilt for telling me I was adopted for all of those years!) BUT I have to say, that if happiness could be bought, this would be high on the list of objects that create it!

We’re throwing in 5 x 20cm Solid Beeswax Taper candles so that you can fire her up as soon as she arrives!

Note: it no longer comes in a wooden box

My go to source of light most evenings are our beeswax dinner candles and Bee Lights.  A great, economical source of light and with the flame front and centre, a great source of calmness and tranquility.  So, I’m always excited to find new, stylish candleholders for taper candles… and we’ve got lots of new ones to show you.

Clippy

Firstly, our “Clippy” candleholders.  A few months ago when we tidied our stationery shelves Sarah found out about my bulldog clip fetish (I think there were over 500 clips in different shapes and sizes).  Imagine my excitement then to find Clippy.  Stylish yet practical, it takes up little room on a busy dining room table.  Industrial looking, great design and designer aesthetic – all rolled into 1 smart candleholder.

You can find Clippy on it’s own in Candleholders on our website here ($12.50 each), or, we’ve put together a Clippy + Tapers pack for $34.16 which is a 10% saving.

Flower Candleholders

If you prefer a splash of colour, these metal, flower candleholders are just gorgeous.  We’ve been discussing whether they are iceberg roses, ranunculus or magnolia so we thought perhaps just “flowers” would be safer!

New Taper Packaging and new Box of 4 x 30cm Beeswax Dinner Taper candles

If you’ve followed Queen B for a while, you may have noticed that we’ve been progressively rolling out new packaging.  I can’t bear waste, so we’ve been updating the packaging as and when we run out of the old.  The newest packaging to be done is our Dinner Candle / Taper packaging.

Our 20cm Beeswax Dinner Taper Candles now come in a box of 4 (RRP $24.95)
