It’s the little things – like the perfect candleholder – that can really give a space personality and bring it to life. Homeware brand Eldvarm recently introduced their latest collection of just that, created by Louise Varre, founder and CEO of Eldvarm, in collaboration with French-Lebanese designer Charles Kalpakian. The three candleholder designs are LouLou, Luca, and Luna, each inspired by humanity’s primal ties to fire and our relationship with the environment.
Varre shared, “I believe that we all share a collective memory of the flame’s importance and that this sparks something deep within us.”
While lighting a campfire isn’t always possible, burning a candle often is. Each candleholder within the trio is different in design, but harmonious when displayed together. The palette of saturated color options only add a playful touch that doesn’t go unnoticed.
Whimsical ripples hint at retro nostalgia in LouLou’s childlike form. “LouLou is the perfect blend of sensuality and design. When someone looks at nature, they either see circles or lines. LouLou reflects the circles, a feminine feel of the world,” said Kalpakian. Choose from brass, stainless steel with brass insert, or powder coated steel with brass insert.
Luca brings to mind classic pillars of the past, with a slightly unexpected and joyful twist in alignment. Kalpakian shared, “I drew inspiration from various eras of art and architecture. The geometric lines are influenced by the stability of columns, while the intentional shift between the two blocks breaks the rigidity of the shape, resulting in a delightfully dynamic design.” Choose from brass, stainless steel with brass insert, or powder coated steel with brass insert.
Ideal for the outdoors, the Luna hurricane is an ode to the moon. Delicate in design, the base incorporates a gap for optimal airflow, keeping the glass soot free and the flame steadily lit. Choose between a base in brushed brass or stainless steel. The hurricane’s versatility means it can pair well with any candleholder that fits – like LouLou and Luca!
