As we get closer and closer to the holidays, we’re starting to think about dinner parties, hosting our friends and family, and, of course, the ever-important ambiance of our homes. A couple candles on your dining table creates an instant vibe of warmth and coziness, but you need a stylish home for said candles. We’ve already created Colorful Clay Votives, half a dozen different Painted Candlesticks, and rounded up a whole bunch of DIY candle holders, but we still need more! What else is there to do but round up our favorite candle holders on the market? ;)
1. Mid-Century Vase & Candle Holder Set ($75): This hybrid piece includes both a vase and a candle holder, and we love the cactus creeping around in the background.
2. True Feelings ($26): These were created by two blindfolded designers! How cool is that?
3. Gilded Faceted Candle Holder ($65): Gorgeous faceted geometric forms would look right at home on any modern dining table or dresser.
4. Nappula Candlestick Holders ($39): Sort of pod-like in shape, we dig the idea of gathering up a whole collection of these as the centerpiece of a dining table.
5. Geo-Tinted Candle Holder ($12-$16): We wonder what cool colorful shadows might be cast from these geo-tinted candle holders.
6. Hexagon Candle Stick Holder Set ($148): This set of wooden hexagons inspires us to find a nearby woodshop and try our hand at making our own set. Love all the different woodgrain patterns at play.
7. Wood/Wood/Wood Candle Holder ($35): The name of this candle holders is enough to make us write about it. Love the potential for stacking and creating a scene with lots of different levels.
8. Silver Mercury Glass Votive Holders, Set of 3 ($12): We know this roundup is all about modern candle holders, but there’s something sort of vintage and modern about these, don’t you think?
9. Agate Candle Holders ($110): Agate is having a moment. Ever since collecting agate slices from Natural Wonders in the ’90s, I’ve personally had a thing for agate… everything. These candle holders are no exception.
10. Stem-to-Stem ($298): We love the delicate look of these seemingly stacked glass candleholders. They look as if they might topple over at any moment. And the bunny? Um yes.
11. Light My Bowler ($41): Come on baby light my… bowler? This quirky candle holder gives a nod to hipsters, classic paintings, and hat makers alike.
14. Recycled Concrete Dipped Candle Holders ($29): Made from recycled concrete, these neon dipped candle holders would be a breeze to DIY!
15. Marble Stone Candle Holder ($44): Something about this looks very official, like it belongs in a castle somewhere on the bedside tray of a king. Or maybe I’ve been waiting too desperately for new episodes of Game of Thrones?
16. Pleated Candleholder ($12): I’m digging the sort of muted but bold tones of these “pleated” candleholders. But fear not, pleated pants will never be in. Never.
17. Gallant Horse Candle Holder ($24): Channel your inner 10-year-old who still wants a pony ;) But for real, this quirky piece would be a great accent piece alongside more basic black ceramic candlesticks.
18. Bottle Candle Holder ($148): Most of us have probably tried using a wine bottle as a candle holder, but what about a cool bottle outline that’s actually made for holding a candle?
19. Totem Votive Set ($28): This set of three votives makes for either three tea light holders or one rather grand candlestick-style centerpiece.
20. Lantern Framework ($32): It’s like a terrarium… for candles!
22. Valkand 4-Pack ($10): Last, a set of four pops of color courtesy of IKEA. These sort of look like measuring cups, and would work great in a dorm room… provided you’re allowed to burn candles.
