worth the candle  Whether passed down through generations or new treasures embracing a common theme (like the natural forms shown here), candlesticks are decidedly polished as well as practical. Here, a bird’s nest votive holder (second from left) from Seasonz Home Gifts in Mount Kisco, “Seychelles” sea fan coral tealight holder by Zodax from Fairground Attraction in Mount Kisco, and an antler candlestick by Expo found at  The Design Shop in Tarrytown embrace today’s earth-conscious looks.

box trot Made of everything from stone and glass to snakeskin and bone, boxes provide the prolific collector with plenty of different looks.

sphere say  If you’re looking for the most eclectic vintage globes on earth, check out this collection, featuring a tiny Asian pencil sharpener (bottom shelf, second from left) and globe bookends from the 1970s (bottom shelf, middle), both from Pretty Funny Antiques in Tarrytown; and 1960s black globe (bottom shelf, right), found at Golden Oldies in Mount Kisco. An Italian globe sits atop antique, theme-appropriate books (top shelf, left) from Pleasantville-based Worldview Antique Maps and Books, setting the world stage.

blue goes there Blue-and-white serving ware and vases are a perfect complement to global eclectic looks, especially when mixing a dragon pot from China’s Kang Xi period (top shelf, left) found at Maison in Bedford Hills; Victorian boxes (second shelf, left) found at Juliana Rose in Tarrytown; and a distinctive Holland Splendid patterned plate, circa 1890, (bottom shelf, left) from Crown House Antiques in Chappaqua.
