The tall candle holders all have a long history at Svenskt Tenn as the company’s founder, Estrid Ericson, loved to create decorative table settings with candlesticks. Lighting at the dinner table was something that she was particularly fond of, and in a 1951 radio talk she imparted some main rules for increased wellbeing: “The light should be high enough so as not to shine from below and cast an unflattering light. The flowers should be so low, that you can see the person across the table unhindered.”
Low candle holders can spread a beautiful and atmospheric glow and become a decorative detail in the interior. Svenskt Tenn's range includes the colourful candle holder “Fusa” in Murano glass, designed by Luca Nichetto, the versatile “Mareld” by Johan Bjurmar and the classic "Klöver" in brass by Sara Szyber.
