As spring finally breaks here in the heart of Canada, the longer hours of daylight are more than just a little bit welcome.
Now, when dusk settles, we can be more welcoming of the night and the opportunity to warm our spaces with ambient light.
Be it on the patio, in the gazebo, over dinner or by the bedside, we have a number of unique and inspiring options to set a mood.
The mastery of laser cut patterns and shadow play are more than evident in Tord Boontje's latest creation. Bright Times is a set of four tea light holders. Flat packed so you can participate in that final design step, they pop out to present elaborately delicate and beautiful shapes which create a dazzling spectacle of shadows.
Available Here in three color variants - brushed silver, gold and the Spring collection of four hues.
Mine Design has introduced a playful element to ambient lighting with their Chalkboard Candle. Say "I love you" or "I'm in the mood". Draw a simple happy face or recreate a masterpiece and then light the long burning and beautifully scented soy candle. Clever, cute and captivating. Find them Here.
Also by Mine Design, elegant Cambiere candles are housed in a nondescript glossy black vessel. When lit the warmed soy wax and flame transforms the vessel revealing a gorgeous detailed pattern. Available in our House or Here.
