Dining table decor takes on new meaning with FX Balléry’s Les Perles Candlesticks: the French designer (he's designed accessories for Chanel and Hermès) created this set of interactive DIY candlesticks, harking back to the “simple and childlike pleasure of stringing beads."

Above: Les Perles Candlesticks are $60 for the small and $75 for the large at Design Within Reach.

Above: Comprised of individual wooden bead-like pieces that can be arranged on the stem to create different compositions, Les Perles Candlesticks are manufactured in the French Jura Mountains, an area renowned for its wooden toys.
