Artist: Stephan Becker Location: Portland, Oregon About: Award-winning furniture designer, Stephen Becker, is now creating beautiful, environmentally responsible lighting with the launch of greenlights. We currently offer five distinctive “candle sculptures” (they’re too cool to be called candleholders), many of which fit both votives and tapers. A pioneer in sustainable furniture design and owner of IF Green (www.ifgreen.com), Becker’s beautiful Slingback chair was awarded “best new chair of the year” by Sunset Magazine. His cabinet and furniture designs have been featured in a wide array of publications including Natural Home and Atomic Ranch magazines and National Geographic’s True Green Home. Now, Stephen turns his sights to lights with five green candleholder designs handmade in Oregon. Each features sustainably harvested or reclaimed woods, natural glues and finishes and recycled materials. Once again, Becker has proved his motto true: “Sustainable can be stylish.” His work is beautiful! We have a couple of these candle sculptures in store, and they get tons of comments from people who come in the store, good ones of course! What's even cooler is that he does furniture too!
