Starkeld of Scandinavia

I recently became better acquainted with a Swedish website called Starkeld of Scandinavia that sells beautiful ceramics, metals, glass, tableware and other items. I posted a photo of Timo Sarpaneva Festivo candlesticks from the site back in March, but I've spent time lately giving it a thorough viewing, and I've exchanged several pleasant emails with Lars Andreasson, the owner.

The company ships internationally, and there are many pieces I wish they'd ship my way. Here are a few that I love. If you give the site a look, I'm sure you'll find just as many that make your heart beat a little faster.

I bought a pair of these tiny Quistgaard candlesticks not long ago. They have a base that allows them to stand up straight or lean. Very cool.
