Our exclusive ‘green’ Menorahs are entirely made of recycled white oak staves from French wine barrels.
This unique candleholder is a perfect Hanukkah/Chanukah Menorah, great as an original gift idea, as a very sophisticated centerpiece for a dining table or fireplace mantel.
This very exclusive design is a perfect fusion of modern style, organic vibe and classic elegance, very easy to integrate with any interior design.
Our ‘Ludwig’ is made of a single stave that accommodates nine very elegant porcelain mini holders and nine mini taper candles (1/2” diameter).
A short stave at the base creates a counterbalancing effect, while the two pieces are linked and secured together by a portion of the actual metal hoop also recycled from the wine barrel and polished to flawlessness.
The red wine previously held in the barrels stains the underside side of the stave and it’s complemented with a rich Cherry Chocolate color, while the upper side is a creamy Mahogany color.
As no one barrel band is the same, each piece might show natural imperfections, slight variations in color, grain & dimensions, all adding to the uniqueness of every item.
Total measurements are:
About 29” length, about 7 3/4” height, about 3 1/2” width (the largest point at the base)
(each barrel stave is different so the size is ALWAYS approximate)
PLEASE NOTE: The taper candles you will receive will fit nicely into the porcelain holders; Please make sure you secure them in place before burning by making them fit into the holders as tightly as possible.
The porcelain holders are NOT fastened in ANY way onto the candleholder; make sure they are not in danger to be knocked over while burning. We recommend the use of MUSEUM WAX for extra safety :)
The solid wood of an oak wine barrel has a very distinctive element of charm that is conveyed into every object we create.
The natural arch of a barrel stave confers striking finesse to the silhouette of each of our designs.
Every individual barrel carries the signs of its unique history in every stave.
Each one is individually handcrafted sanded back to its original wood and creatively reinvented.
Stil Novo Design’s philosophy has always been "Artistry and attention to detail".
We are a family business dedicated to create the highest quality woodcrafts and specialty pieces.
We love the fact that we are able to help the environment by recycling the raw material and to turn it into an object of ‘practical elegance’ at the same time.
We welcome your requests for customized orders, special commissions and personalized ideas.
Every piece is made to order, please allow about 4/5 weeks to manufacture plus shipping time.
