Aloe Shaped Candleholder

Imagine a beautiful woman that is dressed very nicely, but without any jewels, scarves, hats or other accessories. She will be noticed, but she will not be WOW. Well, the charm and personality reside in the little details that only emphasize the natural beauty and the chic style. Going one step further in this comparison, a house will be just nice without its accessories, clean, but without style. Here is one amazing accessory that certainly draws attention and that can become the centerpiece of your living room: the Aloe Shaped Candleholder. It is a beautiful and pretty large candle holder that is made of white porcelain and shaped like an aloe plant, which makes it rather interesting as design.

All the credit for imagination goes to two South African designers called Gerhard Swart and Anthony Harris who work for Ceramic Matters. However, the item was created specially for West Elm. The large and bumpy aloe leaves loo great and very realistic and keeps the candle gently inside, holding it with care. The light cast from inside out through the porcelain leaves it filtered and delicate, leaving shadows on the walls. This item will certainly be the “piece de resistance” in your living room. You can have it for $59.
