jean pelle

tallwoodcandleholders.jpg
architect turned designers jean pelle is based in brooklyn and recently produced a small line of beautiful, hand-turned candleholders. made of douglas fir, each piece is finished smooth to the touch with tung nut oil and the tall candleholder (called “tod”) is finished with 24k gold leaf detailing. the shorter option (the “billie”) is approximately 11 inches tall and would be perfect for a casual dinner at home. jean’s candlesticks are currently being sold at clio home in soho (one of my favorite shops in the city, hands down) so you can contact clio right here to purchase (the tall “tod” candles sell for $250 per pair).

[ps: the wood has been treated to be fire resistant]

I don’t get it. Candleholder from FLAMMABLE material? Do you really think that’s excactly what good design should be like?

it’s been treated to be fire resistant- that’s my fault for leaving that out. i’ll add it in now.

I don’t care what qetina said, i like the candle holders, the detailing of them are very beautiful & would be something that i’ll use on my special day like on my honeymoon.

Jean and I were classmates at Yale – even then the purity and clear-headedness of her designs were apparent. I am so proud of her for venturing out to a new field. Way to go, Jean! These are beautiful!
