Modern wall sconces are very popular with many homeowners, however there are many raised eyebrows when they find out that initially wall sconces came into existence long before electricity was discovered. They were used to secure candles to the walls of homes, from modest residences to extravagant manors, and provide lighting to rooms, staircases, hallways, and the exteriors of dwellings.
Candle sconces go way back the 16th century. There are old homes that have brass candle sconces that are really antique. These are a great find indeed. If you want to add the same elegance to your home with brass candle sconces, you can shop for some on your local retail store or you conveniently purchase them online.
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.
