KRATER by Levantin Design

A coffee table isn’t complete until it’s been properly styled. Flowers and books are a fine way to do it, but nothing can put the finishing touch on a table better than a candle. When a coffee table and a candle team up, their powers are unparalleled. Here are five reasons why the two are destined to be together.


Cozy Up A Space

Coffee tables and candles work together to create the perfect cozy atmosphere. A table on it’s own? Not very cozy. A candle on it’s own? A little cozy. A candle on a coffee table? So much cozy!

Give Life To A Room

Even when all the lights are off in a room, the glow from a candle can still liven it up. Whether it’s the light from the candle dancing on the walls or the warm glow that invites people into the room, a lit candle sitting on a coffee table is a guaranteed way to bring life to a space.

Bring Out The Best In Each Other

When a candle perfectly compliments the style of the coffee table, it’s impossible not to notice the pair. The perfectly designed candle holder can bring out subtle details of a coffee table that would normally go unnoticed, while the coffee table acts as the perfect pedestal for a unique candle.
