Diptyque Cuts A Rug
Here’s a little-known fact about me: I love kilim rugs, which becomes abundantly clear immediately upon stepping into my apartment. I have three of them—in my living room, kitchen and office, respectively. Wherever there is visible floor space in my humble Brooklyn abode, in fact, you’ll find a kilim—there’s even a small runner in my closet-of-a-bedroom. There’s just something about the intricate mix of bold colors and geometric shapes that makes them so appealing to me, I guess; put simply, they really tie a room together, which is presumably why the geniuses over at Diptyque have used the Persian, hand-woven floor coverings as inspiration for their Arabian Nights holiday candle collection. Available in three scents—Sapin Doré, which boasts balmy fresh hints of golden fir trees, Amber Oud, which exudes wafts of warm resins and rare spices, and Oliban, an homage to the iconic, religious aroma of frankincense—each luminary comes packaged in a gorgeous, kaleidoscopic glass vessel that happens to add a fun, colorful accent to any kind of home décor (specifically mine).
