jean pelle

by Grace Bonney

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]
