I’ve rounded up 15 of the coolest modern candle holders from around the web as well as a simple DIY project to make some of your own. Simple modern candle holders are perfect for an industrial inspired and minimalist tablescape.
My love of candles has launched to a whole new level this year. Honestly, I’m obsessed. After a year of making a stop at every thrift store we pass (sorry Dan!) I have accumulated quite the collection of brass, silver, and crystal holders. This week I was putting together a minimalist tablescape for a small event. Neutral tones, clean materials…that sort of thing. Feeling prett-ay uninspired with how my current collection of candle holders paired with the scheme, I set out to make some super simple DIY modern candle holders. These candle holders are easy to make and with their neutral design they compliment many different interiors and tablescapes.
To make your own minimalist tablescape, focus on simple materials and a monochromatic colour scheme. Bud vases are a lovely simple way to decorate a table so that it feels full yet simple. Simplicity is key to a modern feel but bear in mind that simplicity does not necessarily mean sparse. Select candlesticks that match the colour of the decor on the table. I went with muted pinks and greys to compliment the flowers. I love how the linen and concrete are both simple materials with a rough feel which is set off with the shiny copper of the Umbra Geometric Shapes.
