Like it or not, TikTok has quickly transformed from teen dancing app to an all-around social powerhouse with the ability to spot and predict trends in virtually every space from fashion and beauty to, yes, home. The latest thing that has #DesignTok in a frenzy? Candle warmer lamps.

So, why the love for these lamps? Well, there are a couple of reasons. First and foremost: style. One look at these lamps and it’s easy to see why people are going crazy over them. From vintage-inspired picks with chic glass shades to modern lamps with a spa vibe, they’re a fun decor element that works in any space.

Next is their functionality. Serving as both a lamp and a way of melting your candles, who isn’t a sucker for a good two-in-one? Top that with the fact that they eliminate the need for an open flame (a must for homes with pets and kids), feature timers so you never forget to “turn it off”, and help your candle last longer (something candle lovers will appreciate) and they are a total no-brainer.

Ready to pick one up for yourself? Below you’ll find 14 incredibly chic candle warmer lamps, all itching for a coveted spot in your home. But be warned: you may end up getting one for every room of your home. Happy shopping!
