The Collective: Koselig Candle Co.
Since 2016, founders and lifelong buddies Matt Kruger and Blake Anderson have poured small-batch candles that define a space and conjure a coziness that would make Anderson’s grandmother say, “Det er så koselig her inne!”—which translates to “It’s so cozy in here.” These modern makers with old souls understand that the strike of a match to a candle has the power to transport one to unseen adventures with its scent notes that fill a space. Kruger and Anderson believe the power of good company, laughter, and stories can bring us together to revel in the simple smells and sounds of the world around us all. koseligcandleco.com
