If Halsted Trays in Cambria Britannica Gold Quartz beckon with their come-hither good looks, I assure you there’s more to them than meets even the most sophisticated eye.

ALL IN THE FAMILY

Gallery-worthy sculpture is not usually what comes to mind when talking candles, and yet Greentree Home Candle has redefined wax tapers and pillars into works of art, so lovely you think twice before putting match to wick.

SALTS OF THE EARTH
You don’t have to be an epicure to crave flavor sensations beyond the banal. Salt-is-salt is-salt just won’t cut it when there’s mega-fusion just outside your spice rack at SaltWorks®, where variety is the spice of life with a plethora of sea salt blends like Spanish Rosemary, Vintage Merlot, and Black Truffle. Thankfully, there are several sampler sets. Info: seasalt.com
