Our Jewish readers will definitely appreciate the beautiful Hanukkah Menorah by Richard Meier. For the uninitiated, menorah means candle holder which is key to Hanukkah celebrations since the festival is observed by lighting a nine branched candelabrum over a period of eight nights. The Hanukkah Menorah by Richard Meier is not for sale unfortunately and is a limited edition menorah designed for the Jewish Museum in New York, to commemorate 4,000 years of Jewish history. Each candle holder represents a significant Jewish event. For example the first five candle holders represent locations of Jewish exodus from Egypt, Roman Palestine, France, England and Spain and the rest signify the violence they had to bear including the horrific concentration camps.
Illuminate with "Aluminate" from designer Vikki Smyth. These cool and colorful hurricane style candle holders can be used inside or outside and straight or tilted thanks to an angled end. The Aluminate metal tubes fit over votives and add real ambiance anywhere. A while back we featured Sushi-Ushi from the Ultimate Spread collection by Vikki that made even the most awesome Sushi and finger foods look more delectable thanks to their colorful and shapely characteristics.
