For a camp or a country home, one might choose an iron sconce that is embellished with pine cones to complete their themed decor. For a beach house, perhaps a wall sconce that is adorned with seahorses might be the appropriate choice. To provide the inspirational look, there are several sconces that are in the shape of a cross so that any room can have a spiritual look.
Metal and matte glass sconces contain specific drawings and cutouts such as Acoma bears, geckos, kokopellis, chilies, ponies, petroglyphs, and many cowboy designs. There is even a wall sconce shaped like a cowboy hat. Most sconces are available in your choice of outdoor or indoor wiring and you can even buy just the cover to replace a cover on an existing sconce.
Traditional: Traditional wall sconces have easy curves and graceful scrolled arms, and are often constructed of copper, brass or pewter metals. Candelabras or candle wall sconces are traditional wall sconces, having a very elegant appearance.
The sconce is a wall fixture which can be electric or feature candles. Reminiscent of medieval times, however, they were widely used in the XVII century and still are popular choice in lighting fixtures to decorate your wall space, interior and exterior. It is during this time period that lighting experts believe the sconce started to develop as a fashionable piece in additional to being practical. In Italy, a mirrored piece was used behind the sconce to create illumination. It was also the Italians who began to design a more elaborate sconce by adding the sconce to corbels. It was not uncommon for sconces to be large sized at that time, they varied in high from 1‘-5‘. But keep in mind the sconces were featured in large places, such as castles and churches. The sconce of today is usually much smaller and appropriate to the size of the rooms in homes. Architects and interior decorators use sconces to decorate as a staple of their design scheme. The sconce never fails to deliver in creating style and atmosphere.
A good suggestion for a candle holder is the one made of crystal. Crystals are sleek, modern, and sometimes, very colorful. They are perfect for every new home, pad, or apartment. Crystals used as materials for a candle scone is very popular today, especially for a teen‘s bedroom or a woman‘s pad.
