Fashionable Flames

While I was perusing through a magazine this week, I found two products that I thought were incredibly innovative, beautifully designed, and quite intriguing. After staring at their images for a few minutes, I just had to learn more about them.

Above is the incredibly beautiful Manzanita candelabra from
West Elm. Obviously inspired by nature, I think this is such an innovative way to add warmth, charm, and a touch of the great outdoors in an elegant, easy manner. I love the simplistic, beautiful elements it brings.

After not finding any information on this fabulous find on the company's website, I called West Elm to investigate. Unfortunately, the product is no longer available, as the candles tend to tip over, igniting fires.

On a more positive note of safety and availability, I'm also loving the table top fireplace by Gido Wahrmann for Carl Martens at Generate.
