Candles a decor favorite this winter for light, scent, mood

This image provided by Novita Italia shows a Vestalia white marble candlestick holder. Virginia Valentini and Francesco Breganze of the Italian studio LatoxLato have designed a clever candelabrum; they use a water jet to precisely cut small slabs of marble. Closed, the pieces look like a solid slab. But with a few light pushes, a series of candleholders accordions outward, creating an elegant objet d’art.
