Hurricane lantern candle holders earned their name because their tall chimneys protect a flame from wind. Not sure if they could stand up to a real hurricane–but with their pleasing shapes we like to have them on the table when we’re dining outdoors at night. Here are 10 of our favorites, swith price tags that range from $12.99 to $1,260:
