Celebrating The Festival of Lights-Our Favorite Menorahs for Hanukkah

When A Candle Holder Is So Much More

Candlelight has long been a meaningful element of our special meals, occasions and holidays.  Today we share some of our favorite menorahs during the Festival of Lights.

The Menorah

A menorah is a special candle holder for seven or nine candles. Nine-branched menorahs are used during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.  Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday that falls in the late fall or winter and lasts for eight days and nights.  The word menorah comes from a Semitic root meaning “to shine.”

Now, after years of having the blessed opportunity to work with clients who have shared their holiday traditions, I understand and continue to admire the beauty of these special candle holders.

The Festival Of Lights Is An Artistic Tradition

I remain drawn to these unique candle holders, perhaps even more so, because of the artistic aspect each one brings to an interior’s design during this special holiday.  So personally beautiful.
