New Light

It's time to take what started as a dream, became an obsession, to new levels. Nordic Candle is now our full time occupation and we thought it would be fun to share how it developed over the years.

What happened three years ago on a cozy spring night when a commercial banker and a drummer enjoyed a glass of wine together on their screened in porch? We looked around at our candles and started talking about how we would love to create our own candle collection.

Our vision is to create a line that is modern, yet incorporated the basic elements of nature into our designs. We are inspired by river rocks, marble, sea glass, tree bark and the basic elements: earth, water, air and fire. We feel our textures and colors add a little bit of nature, enhancing the modern home with warmth and light. For us it is about a great burning candle, that lasts and looks great even when not lit.

Besides an aesthetic candle we wanted to create a product we could feel good about from an environmental stand point. We conduct extensive research on our processes and materials and only use what we feel will provide a clean burning candle with a minimal environmental impact. We diligently test burn every batch. This may cause a longer time in production and is at many times frustrating when we are working to get it just right. However, it is worth it to hear time and time again: "At first, I bought your candles for their look, now I buy them for their look and their burn."

It took three years before Nordic Candle was finally launched as a full time business, but today the former banker and still rocking drummer hand make decorative candles out of their studio in Sea Cliff, NY. All with a lot of help from our friends and support from our awesome village.

We hope our candles add a little ambiance and coziness to your space.

Relax & Enjoy!
