BODY SHAPED CANDLES
These candles are reminiscent of ancient artworks and can be used as statement pieces in your home. They usually take the form of elegant torsos. But if you want even more of a talking point, they come in the shape of pregnant bellies, a range of more realistic body shapes and even irreverent hand gestures.
These candles look like a cluster of bubbles. They are a little quirky and add some fun energy and personalityto your home decor.
These candles are reflective of rope knots. They look great in homes with a nautical theme, but are just at home on bookshelves in a modern styled home.
Made famous by Dutch designer, Lex Pott, the twist candle has made a comeback with both even and uneven twists being utilised. They come in a variety of colours and look great as stand-alone decor items or grouped together in similar tones.
SHELL SHAPED CANDLES
These candles are perfect for homes styled in a beach or Hamptons style. From common shell shapes to more intricate designs, they look beautiful next to items like photo frames.
