Handcrafted candles have become an essential home decor item. When it comes to decorate home with a product that’s practical and hot, candle comes first.

There’s nothing like a candle to instil a feeling of calm.

Handmade items just cannot be compared to mass produced goods. They are not made in the same way and we shouldn’t view them the same way when we buy them.

Geometric decor is the modern trend we’re completely heart eyes over. Geometric glassware pieces are popping up in home décor stores everywhere, but we have yet to find anything quite like the handmade collection from Waen, featured shop on Etsy.

This shop, located in Istanbul, Turkey, creates gorgeous glass décor ranging from ornaments to jewelry boxes, to terrariums, and even candle holders. With all of the variety, they’ve got us planning a decorative revamp of every room in the house.

We’ve got a few ways you can incorporate our favorite items from Waen into your home, office, or next big event (cue the wedding bells?).

Life of the Party
There’s always cause to celebrate, which means there’s always a need for great party décor. You’re going to love these items from the Waen shop that are sure to bring a little extra razzle dazzle to your next event.
Handmade Geometric Glass Candle Holders
For instance, we can see this copper geometric candle holder with triangle and pentagon shapes as the headliner in the centerpieces at your holiday cocktail party. Just add a tea light and place a few sprigs of pine needles around the candle holder for a festive look.

Anytime celebrations come up, weddings come up too! As we were scrolling through the items in the Waen Etsy shop, we swear that a wedding march was happening in the background. There are so many wedding-related items from this seller that we love, but there is one item in particular that you’ve got to see!
Geometric Glassware
If you’re planning a wedding, you might want to consider carrying your ring in this diamond-shaped geometric ring-holder. The ring pillow is played out anyway, right? We love how unique this ring holder is, and it’s the type of decoration you’ll be doting over long after the wedding.

If nuptials aren’t in your near future, how about hosting a dinner party with some old friends? Coming up with a perfect centerpiece can be a headache, but it doesn’t have to be. All it takes is one perfect item and the whole arrangement somehow falls into place.

This large glass terrarium would be the ideal centerpiece for your dining room or patio table. Fill it with decorative ornaments and set it on your dining room table, or plant a succulent or a cactus in it for a fun focal point for your patio dining set up.

The Perfect Vanity
Beauty inspires beauty, that’s why it’s so important to have an elegant space where you can put the world on hold, sit down, and get ready. If your vanity area needs a little makeover to get you more in the mood to spend time on yourself, we have a few ideas from the Waen Etsy shop that will help you dress it up a bit.

Light up your vanity with this cute set of mini geometric candle holders. They are just big enough to hold a tiny tea light candle. Constructed out of pentagon panels, these are available in copper, rustic copper, silver, and black so you can find the perfect metal finish for whatever decorative theme you have going on in your vanity area.

Another option for vanity candleholders comes in a simpler, but still geometric look. This candleholder uses square and triangle glass panels instead of pentagon ones. The shape becomes more elongated and less round. We love this particular piece in the black metal finish!

If you have limited space on your vanity table or countertop, you can make the most of it by finding decorative storage options. Glass jewelry boxes are very much in style right now, and allow you to ditch the bulky plastic bins and baskets. We found an option in Waen’s shop that puts some of the others we’ve seen in stores to shame.
