Emma takes a step away from strictly fireplace accessories with this similarly sleek companion lantern. Like the rest of the series designed by Emma Olbers, there’s a spare but appealingly tactile air in the combination of the powder-coated steel base with finishing touches of brass screws and natural leather trim from renowned Swedish tannery Tärnsjö. And, if desired, it also makes a stylish holder for a green plant.

“In ancient, nomadic times, it was the woman’s honor to carry and preserve the fire when the families moved to find new homes,” says Louise Verre, of the impetus to create uncommonly chic Eldvarm fireplace accessories. “I love the romantic allure in this story—the caring, motherly affections so intimately linked with the fire and the fireplace.”
Growing up in Scandinavia, fire was always important for Louise. Historically, the long dark winters were spent together in front of the fire, telling stories while crafting, polishing and perfecting objects, leading to a legacy of Nordic craft and design. “I see it as my quest to bring to the market lovingly crafted, tactile and timeless objects,” she says, “designed to make these relaxing, revitalizing moments in life even more beautiful.”
