Current RHONY Jenna Lyons may be associated with her role in the aforementioned Bravo series, but she also has an impressive design-focused résumé to her name – and nothing showcases her background quite like her SoHo apartment.
It's perhaps already no secret that Jenna has a trend-setting home, from her pink sofa to her unlacquered brass kitchen (to which we've already penned love letters). This time, however, Jenna's coffee table, or rather, the candles on her table, have warranted our attention – and one look at these statement pieces makes it clear why.
Designed by Creative Candles, these 30-inch taper candles are sure to take center stage in any living room, whether we exhibit them on a marble coffee table like Jenna, decorate our mantel, or create an impressive tablescape (it's the season, after all).

In her post, Jenna shared she was 'obsessed' with her Creative Candles, and honestly, we are too. They demand attention without overwhelming our space and are (almost) too dramatic to light but of course, if Jenna has taken the plunge, we too will follow suit.
The statement candles have a slow, smokeless burn that brings a warm glow to our room while standing as an unrivaled talking point. We love this ivory colorway (it's a classic), but there are lots of other shades available, including Jenna's Eggplant shade, making them perfect for every kind of home.
Followers of Jenna will already know that she is no stranger to experimental candles, from these 30-inch offerings to her chunky black candle sticks that have also received approval from her cat, evidently.
In her blog, Jenna also reiterates the influence of candles, encouraging us to light them wherever possible, not only for 'special occasions', which we can certainly get behind as the days grow ever shorter.
'Taper candles are right for any occasion – not just special ones... small, carefully chosen details can warm up a space and make it feel like home.'

For those who want to experiment with this look, but can't accommodate 30-inch pieces, we've got you covered. Here are some of our favorite tall candles, along with a chunky candle holder to create a chic, statement look
With a slow, even burn, these taper candles are long-lasting and clean burning, making them the perfect, Jenna-Lyons approved focal point in every space.
This candle was professionally hand-dipped, ensuring a beautiful, even color, whichever shade we choose. It also promises a clean burn every time.
As Jenna reminds us, we need no special occasion to light candles around our homes, but as the holiday approaches ever quickly, there is no better time to make the investment and go tall, if we dare.
