Skultuna Kin Polished Steel review

Skultuna Kin Polerat Stål - Set om 3

In this piece of text I will review the Skultuna Kin Polished Steel – Set of 3, candle holders. This set was brought to me as a gift from a dear friend. My friend spent a lot of time trying to find something that would fit my Scandinavian home decor and I must say, she did a great job. These tea light candle holders match perfectly with the rest of my Eva Solo Nordic Kitchen line and the overall raw and simple feeling of my home.

This Polished Steel Kin set is not only timeless design wise, it’s not manufactured the standard way. Skultuna uses old techniques to ensure great quality, look and feel. As a matter of fact, I did question whether this set was handmade or not (in a good way!).

However, I would never buy this set

To be honest, I did feel a bit skeptical upon receiving the candle holders. Ironically, just a few weeks prior I had decided not to lit any candles. The reason being, I had once left a candle lit and went to bed. I coincidentally discovered my mistake when taking a nightly bathroom visit. Just the imagination of my apartment (and my CAT!) on fire and knowing that most fires begin with a lit candle has impacted my decision to remove all candles from my home. Now you may wonder, how is this relevant in this review? I’ll tell you why!

Unfortunately I did not share this dramatic decision with my friend. I did feel a bit disappointed as I could not make use of this Kin set to its full potential.  However, I almost immediately realised that I do not need to put in any tea light candles in the holders. The Skultuna Kin Polished Steel holders look good with or without candles in them. I have them displayed as they are and I am absolutely loving them.

Summary

The Skultuna Kin Polished Steel candle holders make a great gift but I would not by them for myself and neither as a gift. The reason being, I am a minimalist and I prefer to own things that have a functional purpose and, I do not ever want to feel the tiniest responsibility if (god forbid) a friend of mine causes a fire by using something she received from me. However, if you are a responsible person (unlike me) and do not leave lit candles unattended then this Skultuna Kin Set is probably one of the most classy, timeless and elegant tea light holder set you can get for a fairly reasonable price.
