Aptly named, Balance exhibits a satisfying equilibrium with each side counter-weighing the other. Fashioned in either assorted metallic finishes of chrome, brass and blackened brass or in high-gloss colors, the geometric shape of the candleholder is tethered by a metal arch to a weighted ball. The design is functional too, as the arch also makes a handle to carry the candle holder.

Graphic designer Trine Andersen got inspired one day when she was looking for wallpaper and the choices were dull and too expensive. Figuring other people probably felt the same way, she decided to create it herself. And Danish design company Ferm Living was the result, growing to include home accessories, linens, lighting and furniture for both grown-ups and little ones. “Our biggest ambition and desire is to inspire people to create the kind of space that makes them feel comfortable at home,” Trine says. A home is much more than just beautiful things. We believe it’s a place intimately tied to our emotions, values, and way of thinking.”
With a Nordic style that references the design heritage of the ’50s and ’60s, Ferm Living also offers bolder statement pieces—items that are more colorful and rich. “When you mix these styles, the bolder pieces give energy to the calmer ones,” Trine says. “I love to mix it up. It’s not about being just clean and Scandinavian. We love to add some sparkle!”
