We all love a tapered candle for bringing height, balance and an elevated feel to our dinner tables – and the vessels they’re held in are just as (if not more) important in bringing your table’s aesthetic together. Stoneware is a staple in the decor world for a reason – from vases to decorative bowls, they never fail to bring a chic organic feel to your space, and earthenware candle holders are no exception!
There are a ton of gorgeous styles to be found in the best home decor stores, so I’ve browsed through them all to find the top styles to adorn your tabletops. And they're just so good. Stoneware can feel both organic and modern at the same time (it’s probably the most versatile material out there!), so there’s sure to be a style to suit you. From short to tall, and colorful to muted designs, I’ve picked the best stoneware candle holders for you to shop below.
OUR TOP 9 STONEWARE CANDLE HOLDERS
Livingetc knows design. We spend hours testing and comparing the latest products, bringing only our edit of the very best to you. Find out more about how we review.
MODERN STONEWARE CANDLE HOLDERS
This chunky stoneware candlestick makes enough of a statement even without a candle in sight! Style it with a clean, straight taper candle in a neutral color to stay in keeping with the minimalist feel.
This candelabra holds two tapered candles to create an elegant centrepiece for your table. I'm obsessed with the stylish textured matte stoneware finish, and the modern white design will make an excellent addition to your minimalist space.
The abstract curved shape and neutral smooth stoneware finish give this candle holder an organic-yet-modern finish that feels far more expensive than it actually is. It will cast a striking silhouette against a minimal backdrop.
CLASSIC STONEWARE CANDLE HOLDERS
This terracotta candle holder comes in a simple-yet-stylish design that will suit basically any kind of tapered candle. It comes with a small or wide base, so you can layer the two styles together for a chic effect.
I adore this modern, minimal take on a classic candlestick style. The flat dish base with a small handle is reminiscent of a Victorian design, but the simple silhouette and matte black finish feels really modern.
COLORFUL STONEWARE CANDLE HOLDERS
This curvy candlestick from H&M has a lovely glazed terracotta finish. Layer it with the other glazed stoneware pieces in the collection for a cohesive-yet-fun effect.
If you prefer more of a classic stoneware finish, this tall candlestick has a rough texture for a more organic finish. The deep turquoise tone feels timeless classic and of-the-moment.
HOW DO CANDLE HOLDERS ELEVATE A TABLETOP?
Whether styling them on your side table, nightstand or dinner table, candlesticks never fail to add height and dimension to your flat surfaces – elevating your scheme in every way. Adding a few candlestick and tapered candle combos to your dinner table is an easy way to make it feel like you’ve put in that little extra bit of effort.
Candle holders can range widely in design – from simple and classic to modern and playful, so it’s easy to find a style that suits you. A little experimentation doesn’t hurt – candlesticks can be seen as the cherry on top of the cake of your decor, so you can use them to incorporate a touch of color, texture or unique shape to your scheme if you like to stick to a minimalist aesthetic elsewhere
