Candle with Matchbox Built In

Walton-Candle-Matchbox

I like things tidy and feel that most things have their place. While I never thought to combine matches with a candle, this marriage to be quite satisfying. Originally designed by Jeremy Walton in 2002, Hygge-lys is a candle with a built in matchbox and is now available for purchase at the MoMA Store for US$18. As Shiny Shiny point out, it is a bit disappointing that the match box is protected from the flame—nothing like a little tension to go along with romantic ambiance.
