You could drown in the ink that has been spilled rhapsodising over Scandinavian design, but Danish label Broste Copenhagen knows that all those clean, minimalistic lines are for nought if you can’t make high design work with your everyday life. The Copper Candle Holder showcases the beautiful nuances of its material, bringing a refined, metallic accent to sideboards, dining rooms, and side tables—Nordic reserve at its finest.

Exuding a special brand of reduced industrial chic that pairs gorgeously with the labels lightbulbs, a highlight of its collection is undoubtedly the ceramic and bakelite Table Lamp fitted with a colourful textile cable. It’s no wonder that NUD’s minimalistic design has quickly become a favourite among architects and interior designers.
