Our Favorite Candlelight Is Now Available in New Modern Shades

The Wick Portable LED Candlelight from design studio Graypants, Inc. is a longtime Design Milk team and community favorite. Its unique design reimagines candlelight for the modern era – no plugs, no flame, no problem – making it the perfect gift for a loved one or treat for your own enjoyment. Which is why we’re thrilled to announce that the energy-efficient, go-anywhere lantern is now available in new, ultra-modern black and white finishes that you can find here in the Design Milk Shop. To celebrate the launch, we’re sharing what we love most about this cult-favorite candlelight. There are limited quantities available, so pre-order your Wick White and Wick Black to secure yours. All pre-orders are due to ship in mid-March.

Originally launched in the Fall of 2020 in chic, brass-plated and graphite finishes, the Wick’s streamlined modern design has always been a universally stylish addition to any space regardless of decor aesthetic. The black and white colorways deliver even more creative possibilities without fear of clashing with other design elements. “This simple silhouette perfectly blends historical form with modern function,” says Design Milk shopper Elizabeth in her review, “I purchased the Wick for someone with much more contemporary taste than mine – but it would be just as much at home in my more traditional/eclectic space.” It’s also worth noting that you do feel like you’re in a period drama when you walk with it in hand, who wouldn’t love that?

The Design Milk community loves the Wick’s ability to recreate the same warm ambience of candlelight sans flame, and the flexible dim settings that can be easily adjusted with a simple touch – it even has a pulse mode that flickers like a real candle without the fire hazard. “I am a huge fan of how this piece lights the space,” says Design Milk reviewer Adam, “very calm, mellow, tangible, and interactive.” Whether you want to set the mood for an intimate dinner, illuminate the pages of your favorite book, light the way on a nighttime stroll, or keep your space lit during a power outage – the Wick’s reliable, energy saving LED light will see you through it all.

The technical details are also a key part of the Wick’s charm. Not only is its thoughtful, flame-less design safe for the whole family to use, its mood-setting light lasts for up to 100 hours on a full battery, so the fun never has to stop. And when the light does start to go out, there’s no need to mess with replacement bulbs – just recharge its internal USB-C battery. The USB-C battery means you can conveniently charge it from your laptop or power bank while out and about without frantically searching for an outlet.
