Today’s Hotels, Lodging & Restaurants: Stumptown Coffee Roasters in the NY Ace Hotel features collections of vintage brass candlesticks as decor, which reminded us how much we admire Ted Muehling’s candlestick collection for E. R. Butler and the Eva Zeisel Brass Candlestick collection.

Above: Ted Muehling’s candlesticks for E. R. Butler are based on three shapes: the egg, an attenuated rod, and a trumpet form. Permutations of these convex and concave shapes have yielded 17 different candelsticks, which are especially appealing in groupings of three or more. The candlesticks are available in bronze and matte silver or gold plate; prices start in the several hundreds and go up from there. Photo by Johnny Miller.

Above: The Eva Zeisel Original Candlesticks are available directly from Eva Zeisel Originals; the 6-inch size is $55, the 8-inch size is $60, and the 11-inch size is $65.
