Statue Votive Holders: Love It or Hate It?

When I went to drinks at my grandfather Al's house he had a fire roaring in both fireplaces and lots of his candles lit. He was hosting a pre dinner drink for my aunt's 50th birthday party and we were all gathered in his super-nice-always-off-limits-white-carpeted living room. Although I visit awesome Al all the time I can't remember the last time I was in his living room. He had some crazy cool make shift candelabra/votive holders. My aunt actually came up with the idea: she spotted the statues at Ikea for a very reasonable price. Votive candles happened to fit perfectly in their little arms. I love it for the ingenuity even if I think the statues are a little abstract. What do you guys think: love it or hate it?

I love these that think they could only be pulled off with the right decor. I'm all in.

I worked at a hotel in Calistoga, CA. and we had in the bar some candleholders like these. We called them "deco ladies" as the hotel was Art Deco and a national historical site. I have 2 of these and I always get comments on them, they were made for the hotel by Fritz and Floyd.

Oh I totally love it. I just wish it was MADE like that, the tacky part of it is that she actually did it herself. But I still love it.

I wouldn't call it tacky but I don't really like those statues. There are some out there that I do like though.
