I recently posted about my antique candle wall sconces and love for taper candles here. Since then, I started to notice more and more candle sconces popping up in mainstream retailers.

The timeless design element is making a modern comeback after their popularity peak during the 17th and 18th centuries (Versailles vibes).

The perfect way to add ambiance with sculptural detail and a subtle glow, candle sconces can be used to anchor a vignette by flanking a mirror or large piece of art. They are a great option for finished homes because they require no wiring and bring a sense of warmth and old world elegance to a room. I particularly love them for dining rooms as entertaining immediately feels intimate in candlelight.

I really do light mine on a regular basis and you would be surprised how the energy in the room instantly shifts.
