With the days getting shorter and the temperatures colder, the general feeling at our office is that there has to be some kind of recompense. Some way to bring cheer, even when precious sunlight is a scarce commodity. Late fall and winter are all about embracing the indoors, and a big component of that is soft lighting. There’s no better light than candlelight to set the mood and make an ordinary evening after work feel festive.

Hurricanes provide a great focal point to a living room coffee or dining table, console, or buffet. Protected from drafts of wind and accidental clothing or hair contact, they provide both a stylish and functional way to have candles in your home. We’re sharing 10 stylish options that will add a special touch to your home without screaming “holiday decor”.
