As well as beautifully tableware, Emma Alington has literally just launched a new range of candles. With three scents to choose from, each candle holder is hand-cast in bone china and glazed only on the inside for a subtle, refined look. This leaves a tactile, unglazed surface on the outside that also enhances the glow when lit – perfect now that the nights are drawing in. The inner rim is finished off with a hand-painted 22k gold band adding their signature touch of gold. Each candle will burn for approximately 30 hours and are made from 100% poured GM free soy wax and a refill service is also available. Find out more here.

The new Vetiver & Juniper candle for example is a sophisticated blend that creates a fresh, woody aroma. Vetiver oil is made from the roots of the plant which brings an indulgent, earthy, warm tone to a space.

The winter spice candle is for this upcoming festive season. The perfect blend of orange and cinnamon essential oils it’s a great way to set the scene for a glass of mulled wine and card writing by the fire.

We are totally in love with each and every piece Emma Alington designs, from classic to dots and stripes, there’s something to suit both classic and more contemporary homes. View the full collection or find out more here.
