I don’t actually light candles all that often (though my boys think it’s fun to have a fancy dinner with candlelight at home), but I seem to always be admiring candlesticks. I should at least make more effort to light candles on Shabbat! No reason (I don’t think) that I couldn’t use some fun, modern candlesticks instead of the traditional silver ones. Here are 30 candlesticks that will inspire me (and you) to add ambience into winter evenings.
This spring’s Destination: Design series is MoMA’s eleventh. The Destination: NYC collection features 200 products by both established and up-and-coming designers based in New York City, and all are manufactured in the US. The collection launched in MoMA Design Stores in New York and Japan, and online last week. My picks below. You can also click back to last year’s roundup of items from Destination: Mexico.
