Design Sleuth: Vintage Cup Holders as Candle Sconces

Julie Carlson November 05, 2014

We like this idea for candleholders in the bath: vintage wall-mounted cup holders filled with votives–as spotted in the loo at Quality Meats, a New York restaurant designed by AvroKo.

Above: An Antique Chrome Bathroom Cup is $76 from Etsy seller Easton and Belt of Brooklyn. Find more options on eBay.

The repurposing continues– see 14 Kitchen Storage Tricks to Steal from the Bathroom. And browse Bathrooms in our photo gallery for our favorite designs.
