In the realm of home decor, there exists a simple yet powerful element that often goes overlooked: the humble candle. Candles transcend their traditional role as mere sources of light, emerging instead as artistic accents that breathe life into any space they inhabit.

Whether they’re casting a soft glow over a cosy living room or lending a touch of romance to a bedroom sanctuary, these candles have a knack for setting the mood just right. After all, in a world where every detail matters, these candles are the finishing touch that brings it all together, turning a house into a home filled with beauty and personality.


When considering candles for use as a centrepiece, it’s essential to choose ones that not only complement the overall theme and style of the space but also make a statement on their own.

Here are a few types of candles that work well as centerpieces:

Pillar Candles: These classic candles come in various heights and widths, making them versatile for creating visually appealing arrangements. Opt for pillar candles in complementary colours or different shades of the same colour for a cohesive look.

E.g. SLATE GREY NADINE CANDLE SET with a baroque heart pattern in gold dust, will add structure, texture and sparkle to your décor.

Scented Candles: Scented candles not only provide ambiance but also fill the room with delightful fragrances. Choose scents that evoke the desired mood or complement the theme of the event or space.

If you prefer aroma with a fruity accord, choose SCENTED CANDLE IN IRREGULAR WHITE JAR with British Pear Freesia.  You will pleasantly enjoy its delicate yet distinct scent. The minimal appearance of the white gypsum jar in a contemporary shape will also create an ideal accent piece for a modern tablescape.

Taper Candles: Taper candles add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any table setting. A wide range of taper candles with over 85 different colours to choose from is available at Ester and Erik Møller.

You arrange them in candle holders or candelabras of varying heights for a dramatic effect and the perfect finishing touch of your home décor.

Floating Candles: Floating candles are ideal for creating a serene and ethereal centrepiece. Place them in a shallow dish filled with water and accent with flowers or greenery for added beauty. You can select any shape and colour of floating candles at Amazon.

Candle Lanterns: Lanterns add a touch of rustic charm to any centrepiece. Fill them with pillar candles, votives, or tea lights and surround them with decorative elements like rocks, shells, or sand for a beach-inspired centrepiece. For a touch of exotic allure, consider Moroccan-style lanterns at “Not on the high street”. Their designs are adorned with intricate cut-out shapes in vibrant coloured glass, evoking a sense of far-off lands.

Hurricane Candles: Hurricane candles, encased in glass cylinders, are perfect for outdoor centrepieces as they protect the flame from wind while adding a touch of elegance to the setting.

A beautiful selection of Hurricane Candle Holders can be discovered at Wayfair.

Sculptural Candles: For a contemporary twist, consider sculptural candles in unique shapes and designs. One-of-a-kind collection of designer sculptural candles is available at ARTOSTYLE . It ranges from animal and botanical sculptured pieces to ornamental baroque inspired luxury candles. These artisan candles double as decorative art pieces and can serve as conversation starters at any gathering.

Ultimately, the choice of candle depends on the desired ambiance, style preferences, and the occasion for which the centrepiece is being created. With careful consideration, any candle can be transformed into a stunning centrepiece that enhances the beauty of your space.
