This unique pair of candlesticks by master metal smith Henri Béard are a triumph of subtlety. The gentle curves topped by the wax catchers betray a sense of humility, letting the candle do the work. Abandoning the ornate designs of the beginning of the century, the artist opts for a sleek, modernist look to complement a new type of interior.
