Where have you been all my life?
The Kubus candlestick was designed by Danish architect Mogens Lassen in 1962. Intended as a rebellion against the ornate, elaborate home, it has now become a design classic.
I've been lusting after this for years, but haven't quite been able to justify to myself spending so much on a candle stick... The irony is that in my attempt to find a cheaper alternative, I have probably spent the same amount, maybe even more, on other candle sticks that have been discarded along the way. Lesson learnt: buy one beautiful thing that you love, rather than 5 mediocre alternatives you don't. You can call me materialistic, but every time I look at my new Kubus, I smile and my heart skips a beat.
Best x-mas present ever - thanks mamma & pappa!
