Liberty London’s autumn sale has arrived, and the discounts are vast. We spied 20 percent off Barbour wax jackets, Rixo dresses and Colorful Standard sweats. But while perusing the homewares section, we found it hard to look away from these sculptural candles by Talbot and Yoon. If you’re interested in dipping a toe in the waters of sculptural lighting — or if you have a particularly tough hard-to-gift-for in your life, the range is now 20 percent off (£21.60, down from £27).

Our U.S. colleague Dominique Pariso writes: “The affection I feel toward my Goober, a blob of unscented paraffin wax, knows no bounds. If you saw me when I first bought it, you might have thought I was buying a puppy. I imagine this must be what kids who grew up in the ’70s felt toward their pet rocks. They have names — El, Em, and Eph — and come with character descriptions. My little cutie is “a curious kind of Goober and likes being perched on a mantle or coffee table.” The candles burn for approximately 40 hours, but I honestly can’t imagine what kind of monster would ever light the wick.”
