Candlelight brings a magical feel to most occasions, whether it's a romantic dinner à deux, a cosy gathering with friends and family or just curling up in front of a box set. All can be enhanced with some low light and a candelabra with some flickering candles illuminating your space.
Of course, candles are an an important element to the Christmas table decorations and a key part in setting a twinkling festive scene. So having a smart candelabra will set a stylish tone. Some of the candelabras in our edit can also be customised with festive foliage for the big day.
See how Fiona Leahy styles her Christmas table.
At the table you'll want to be able to see and speak with those around it, so a candelabra with a low profile will suit best, such as the Luna brass centrepiece from Rowen & Wren, the gold-hued circular candelabra at Bell and Blue or the subtle ash candleholder from Another Country, as these won't obstruct the view and you'll be able to chat freely.

If you'd like an eye-catching candelabra – or two – for your mantlepiece or sideboard, consider the quirky No2 from Katrin Moye at The Shop floor Project, or the sleek Newstead in black and gold from Habitat.
Tom Dixon's Swirl is a graphic piece that would make a style statement all year round, while the sculptural shape of the Kaysa iron candlestick Broste Copenhagen means it can easily hold its own without candles.
