Marble mimicking wax candles

December 1, 2018

December is here and holiday season is approaching: it’s the perfect time to light up some candles to bring warmth and comfort to your home. Which are the candles trends for this winter? One is for sure emphasized luxury. Candles have always been fancy, but in 2018 their look and feel is especially elaborate.  Marbled candles as well as marble candleholders fit in this trend perfectly.

Most shoppers prefer to buy candles in brick and mortar stores because they want to sniff them and choose their favourite fragrance, that’s why candles producers must find ways to expand e-commerce to match customers preferences, offering monthly curated candles deliveries, new themes and new looks. The candle’s container is another top selling point and marble vessel are the must-have right now.

Marble-like candles

Marble candles can be combined with wooden candleholders, metallic or even concrete stands and they will match classic interiors as well as super modern and industrial settings. Here is our selection of  candles trying to recreate the beauty and elegance of natural marble:

We have found also a number of  DIY tutorials to make marbled candles (like this one for example) but since they use nail polish to obtain the marble effect we recommend to use them only as decor without lighting them up.  Want more winter marble?
