Formal events’ venues or houses with classical or Victorian interior designs may absolutely include vintage candle holders. They are an exclusive and elegant decoration, that sets a special exalted and festive atmosphere, complementing the interior and other pieces of decor.
Usually, they are vintage metal candle holders or the ones with brass, bronze silver, copper and golden finish and sophisticated design and raised details. Often they’re called candelabras or chandeliers, if they’re hanging from the ceiling.
As a rule, they are tall and may be suitable for one candle or include two, three or more branches. The part where to put a candle is either metal as well, or includes vintage glass candle holders. In the latter case, they look extra elegant, especially if they have crystal elements. But those two types create a little bit different effects.
Metal, copper or brass vintage style candle holders you stick high candles on top of are more of an antique and classical style, but they look so refined and nobly, that they may create an aristocratic and formal atmosphere, combined with the natural warmth and calmness of the candle flame.
Tall crystal candle holders create the similar effect, but they look a little bit more tender look and they attract attention more to a candle and decorations around it either than to a holder itself. These may be included into wedding centerpieces and placed all over the venue.
Such holders may be designed for standing on dining or coffee tables, fireplaces, nightstands or special pedestals, but there’re also the vintage wall candle holders, that look like lanterns, or standing on the floor ones.
If you want to place quite bulk candles, then ceramic, glass or metal pillar candle holders or the ones, that look like a cup and a saucer stick together are for you.
