10 Creative Display Ideas for Candles

Candles have long been known to add a little ambience and relax everyone in the room, but after the candle craze of the 90s, they started to seem a little played out, not to mention… well, a little creepy in cases of overkill.  Today’s roundup of creative display ideas for candles keeps things simple and clean, with interesting lines, new perspectives and a general lack of creepiness.  From a colorful series of birdcage-inspired wire hangers by Z Gallerie and petite hanging glass bubbles by Deyfurtado to the revived traditionalism of Pottery Barn’s monogrammed julep cups and a custom Medieval chandelier, the ideas presented here are each gorgeous and flattering to any room without being over-the-top.  The only exception to that last qualitifier, though, is our favorite — the candle wall at Barrio in Seattle; imagine having a room divider like that in your home.  Instant conversation piece, and filled with vanilla pillars?  How heavenly.
