If we're being frank: In the decor space, Hanukkah doesn't get the love it deserves. Every year, it feels like there's a huge opportunity to really put a new spin (heh, dreidel) on the holiday, but here we are again, digging for those hidden Hanukkah treasures. In preparation for the Festival of Lights (FYI, it's late this year: December 20 to 30) we managed to dig up quite a fancy selection of modern menorahs with everything from classic West Elm offerings to indie designers.

1. West Elm Marble and Brass Menorah, $59

If you want something that's classy and actually makes you feel like an #adult, try West Elm's marble and brass menorah.

2. Studio Armadillo Origami Oil/Candle Menorah, $179

This indie workshop offers an origami-inspired ceramic menorah with the option to place candles — or, even cooler, vials of oil.

3. CB2 Alabaster Menorah, $89.95

Who says a menorah needs to be a single piece? This CB2 model lets you arrange as you please.

4. Josh Owen for Areaware Menorah, $125

Always trust design collective Areaware to come up with something sleek and cool, like this solid cast iron menorah.

5. Modern Mensch Rose Gold Menorah, $200

Modern Mensch's arched menorah feels totally fresh thanks to thicker candles and rose gold.

6. Jonathan Adler Canaan Menorah, $198

Of course, Jonathan Adler has years of menorah cred, especially for his iconic elephant- and dog-shaped ones, but we're admiring this marble block for feeling ultra modern.

7. Simon Pearce Woodbury Menorah, $295

Here's something you don't see often with menorahs: a glass base.

8. CB2 Brass Menorah, $29.95

Looking for a budget option but don't want to go with a drugstore menorah? CB2 has you covered.

9. JK Adams Green Marble Menorah, $68

There's something that feels "just right" about this elegant menorah, featuring a slab of green Vermont marble on top of a walnut base.

10. Avandi Counting Menorah, $425

Look closely and you'll see a really unique detail on this deconstructed menorah: each vessel (aside from the Shamash) has an etched line — each with a different count to symbolize the nights of Hanukkah.

11. Brad Ascalon Menorah, $275

Brad Ascalon's Carrera marble menorah comes with a quaint family history: Both the designer's father and grandfather have been involved in the production of menorahs.

12. March Brass Menorah, $2,500

If you are the type who is unabashedly fancy, then this creation for San Francisco boutique March is for you. This brass beauty can be displayed as pictured, or the pieces can be individually placed for a deconstructed look.
