Revamp Your Tablescapes, Courtesy of Simon Pearce
The Simon Pearce Mill in Quechee, Vermont.
Three new hand-blown hurricane lamps from Simon Pearce will add an elegant glow to your tablescape. Mix and match the sizes (fit for a two-by-three, three-by-three, or three-by-six pillar candle) along the spine of a table or embrace late summer by scattering them in small groupings on a patio or in the backyard. For those getting a head start on holiday shopping, this year’s charity ornament, the Chelsea Optic Drop, is also available. Twenty percent of the proceeds from its sale will benefit the foundation LoveYourBrain, started by the Pearce family after their youngest son, Kevin, suffered a traumatic head injury while snowboarding in 2009. 103 Newbury St., 617-450-8388
