When Kathryn Duryea founded Year & Day a few short years ago, her mission was simple: To create elevated dinnerware and décor that makes you want to celebrate all your years and days. But while Duryea hit the design jackpot with a dreamy array of matte flatware, bulbous glassware, and covetable ceramics, there are more places in your home to celebrate than your dining room table.
That’s exactly why we’re celebrating the arrival of Year & Day’s latest expansion: Candles.
“Since Year & Day launched in late 2017, our customers have turned to us to adorn their tables and shelves with our beautiful ceramics,” she explains. ”Along the way, they’ve asked for more products to display in their homes and apartments that offer the same quality, style, and design at direct prices. Our Infinite Candle is the perfect accent to dress up any space in the home: your coffee table, countertop, sinkside, tubside, or bedside."
Inspired by the California coastline—which was a major source of inspiration for the brand’s ceramics—Year & Day’s Infinite Candle line feels like a natural extension of the brand’s relaxed, yet elevated, aesthetic. In fact, each candle is named after one of the brand’s four dreamy colorways—and poured into corresponding canisters.
Of course, aesthetics are only one part of the Infinite Candle’s allure. Made of a sustainable soy wax, these candles are not only vegan and cruelty free, but also free of paraben, phthalate, and phenol. Plus, with a burntime of 50-plus hours, you can enjoy the Infinite Candle for hours on end.
But whether you place it on your dining room table, nightstand, or living room coffee table, one thing’s for sure: Year & Day’s candles will appeal to all the senses.
“I’ve always found the little touches in a space can transform the way it feels,” Duryea says. “Home fragrance is a universal way to shift the mood of a space, regardless of room."

Consider Fog the olfactory equivalent to a lazy seaside Sunday morning. The notes of sea salt, sage, and eucalyptus make us feel like we’re sitting next to the water, watching the tide roll in.
Light and airy, Moon smells as clean and crisp as the white rock looks. Hints of mint, rosemary, lavender, and moss round out the candle, making it a scent you’d want to light long after nightfall.
