For years I’ve adored the Lucite pretzel knot candlesticks by Dorothy Thorpe—a decade ago I had stashed a tear that features one prominently, and I still have it. I think it’s the ultimate modern candelabra. Lately I’ve been interested in brass candelabra with joints, as well as simple Danish candlesticks in teak or painted wood. There are tons of newer, contemporary ones too, like Muuto’s green raw wood candelabra and the chunky chrome or glass tubular pieces that refer back to the ’70s. Following up on yesterday’s Montage: 44 Rooms with Candlesticks & Candelabra, here’s a shopping guide for 65 modern candlesticks and modern candelabra.
