Objects Of Design #153: Silver Tealight Holders

Bring a little atmosphere to the table

On the basis that every time you go to Ikea you come back with a giant bag of tealights that you never seem to get to the end of. And then when you go back you buy another because it just seems like such a bargain that you can buy so many for so little. And then the cupboard is full of the things and you never get round to lighting them. Well now you can. These are very pretty little holders that will encourage you to light candles at every meal. Particularly when you eat outside but they’re just as pretty inside. Buy a couple of sets if you can, things like that always look better when there are lots of them. £21.50 for a set of three
