About Us

Alexander Interiors was founded in 1999 by Juliana Alexander, who trained as an interior designer and is passionate about stylish living. Juliana had a vision of creating candles that lasted and, unlike conventional candles, looked attractive even once they had been lit.

By experimenting with different blends of candle wax, she perfected the blend pressed into wax crystals that today is the signature product of Alexander Interiors.

Seventeen years on Alexander Interiors candles are sold at the most stylish shows and markets and supplied to a few outlets throughout the UK. The reusable candles are enjoyed in thousands of British and European homes and at private and corporate functions.
