The classic Urbania porcelain house from Kähler
Kähler has created a line that is extremely simple and beautiful to have in any home. Mette Bache and Barbara Bendix Becker are behind the Urbania series, which consists of small houses designed as closed tealight holders. Each small and fantastically decorative window in the small porcelain houses is cut out by hand. When lit up, the windows create dancing shadows on the walls, on the window sill or wherever they are in the home. The porcelain houses are a modern interpretation of the city’s silhouettes with an elegant look. You can look forward to seeing the interplay between classic ceramics and Nordic design when you light the candles. The houses' light emissions creates playful clusters of light and shadow around them, wherever they are placed.
Kähler has been creating art since 1839
Kähler is known for its beautiful ceramic products, whose timeless design is beautiful and inspiring in all homes. Since its foundation in 1839, Kähler has been characterised by handmade designs, and has a strong artistic identity through collaborations with many of the greatest Danish artists through the centuries, such as Thorvald Bindesbøll, Svend Hammershøi and Kai Nielsen. We create, shape and paint classic products by hand. Among the most loved favourites is the Omaggio striped vase, which comes in a wealth of colours and is known to many as Denmark’s most famous vase. At Rosendahl.com you will find beautiful products from Kähler – a celebration of well-preserved craftsmanship for more than 175 years.
Choosing the right porcelain house tealight holder
Kähler porcelain houses come in many different designs to create cosiness in Danish homes. You will find both small and city houses, church houses, tower houses and atelier houses. Each house has its own unique look, so it might be difficult to choose the one you would most like to take home with you. The different designs may be important to you – perhaps Tivoli houses remind you of your childhood, or maybe you live in a functionalist, in which case the Funkis house is ideal for you.
One of the latest and quickly popular models is Kähler’s glass hall, which is a historic and characteristic octagonal building in Tivoli, where celebrities from all over the world have performed over the years. It goes well with Kähler’s Tivoli house, which depicts Tivoli’s main entrance from 1890, built by architects Richardt Bergmann and Emil Blichfeldt. There is a difference in the size of Kähler Urbania houses, and of course the size is important when choosing the right one(s) for your home. For example, the small forge is 10.5 cm high, while the townhouse is 12.5 cm high and the high-rise is 22 cm high. It may be a good idea to consider where you would place them in order to be able to choose the best. For example, the large houses can be placed on the floor in the hallway or in the living room, while the smaller houses are best suited for the window sill, and shelves.
Light up with candles, LEDs or string lights
The lovely porcelain houses are made for tealights, but you can easily be creative. Many people choose to use LED lights to illuminate the small houses. The advantage of LED lights is that they have a flickering flame that looks incredibly lifelike, and at the same time you don't have to worry about forgetting to turn them off, as several of them come with a smart timer function. A string of lights is also a cosy way to create lighting while giving the porcelain house tealight holder your own touch. Just remember to find the right length of string lights, as they come in many different versions and sizes. For example, you can get string lights that flash or have different colours if you are looking for that effect. Many families with children or pets prefer LED lights and string lights, as they avoid the risk of fire, but the porcelain house itself is a candleholder that protects little fingers or paws from the live flame.
Porcelain house tealight holders are designed for the Christmas season, when we light up a lot of candles after dark. From the shelves or the window sill, they let the rays of light sparkle out through the small hand-cut windows, so that the lthe home is filled with glistening light and vibrant shadows. It doesn't get more cosy than that. The porcelain houses have a modern, stylish look, which is why they go perfectly with other Christmas classics in the home. For example, you can easily decorate with Christmas baubles in white, gold or silver, or fill the house with elves, angels or other Christmas decorations. The only limit is your imagination.
Use porcelain house candle holders as part of the interior design
The houses bring light and life wherever you put them in your home. For example, you can create a magical atmosphere in the bathroom by decorating a shelf or the tabletop with a small house. When you light a tealight in the houses, the light shines out incredibly well through windows and doors, so you can leave the usual bathroom light off to create cosy lighting for guests and yourself. Each tiny window is also hand-cut, making each of the houses unique.
They can easily stand alone and decorate, or you might choose to put them together to create your own little town with beautiful, shimmering lights that spread Christmas spirit and alluring silhouettes throughout the window sill. Since the houses come in different shapes and sizes, it is obvious to gather them in charming little clusters. Alternatively, you could combine them with other types of candleholders as you wish.
Light the candles and set the right mood
Candlelight is great for conjuring up a special ambiance. When you light a couple of candles or cosy lamps, you’ll soon discover how the room comes to life and the entire ambiance is transformed. Whether you want the mood to be romantic, relaxed or welcoming, simply light up your procelain house candle holder and watch the small hand-cut windows spread stunning silhouettes and alluring shadows. It is a good idea to place a small house on the dinner table while you eat, or a larger house on the floor if you are sitting on the sofa. The houses are wonderful at spreading cosy lighting, whatever the mood and occasion. They decorate the party table just as well as they do the window sill on a Friday evening, when you are alone with a good book. Whatever you are looking for, you are sure to find something to suit your taste here in our wide assortment.
The ideal gift idea
Urbania houses are wonderfully designed to bring joy and smiles to young and old alike, making them a perfect gift for someone special.

The porcelain house tealight holder is also ideal as an Advent gift for adults, a birthday present and of course a Christmas present, where it will bring light to everyday life.
