32 Hot Candle Innovations

— February 9, 2009 — Art & Design
Candles have been offering us light for centuries, but they have evolved greatly since they were our sole source of indoor light. Although the candle-lit sconces and blazing chandeliers we once relied on at night are romantic, we can take comfort in knowing we don’t have to rely on these hazardous and weak illuminations in the home.

This cluster highlights some of the most innovative candles featured on Trend Hunter, from those with LED flames to macho candles designed just for men. There is even stop-motion candle art included in this slideshow. Prepare for some wacky wicks!
