Enjoy the elegance of Scandinavian candles and candleholders

Step into a world where the flicker of a flame and the elegance of design harmonise to create an ambience of warmth and style. At Finnish Design Shop, we curate an exquisite collection of designer candles and candleholders that epitomize the serene beauty of Scandinavian design.

From the gentle glow of modern candles by HAY and Uyuni Lighting to the sculptural grace of designer candleholders by STOFF Copenhagen, glass votives by Iittala, scented candles by Skandinavisk and much more, our selection is a tribute to those magical moments where light dances and shadows play in the cosy corners of your home.

The perfect pair: How to pair candles with holders?

• Functionality first: While aesthetics are important, don't overlook practical aspects. Ensure the candleholder is appropriately sized for the candle and catches drips, especially for candles that will be lit frequently.

• Play with heights: It's not just about holding the candle; it's about elevating it! Create visual interest by pairing candles and holders of varying heights. Grouping different heights together makes a striking display – just ensure there's ample spacing between them.

• Color coordination: Coordinate the colours of your candles and holders to create a visually appealing tableau. You can opt for a monochromatic scheme for a minimalist setting or experiment with complementary colours for a vibrant and eye-catching display.

• Create a theme: For special occasions or seasonal decor, select candles and holders that contribute to a thematic setting, like metallic holders with red candles for a festive look or pink, yellow and other pastel shades for a springtime feel.
