Fireplace Candelabras - An Inviting & Romantic Feel
We cover the popular choices
Fireplace candelabra are large ornamental candlesticks that typically have three or more branches with candle cups to hold the candles. These can be an excellent way to enjoy a non-functional fireplace as candles do not require a flue or chimney for ventilation. Candelabra can also be used in functional fireplaces during warmer periods when they are not in use and can light up a room giving it an inviting and romantic glow.
Candelabra come in a wide variety of designs, colors and finishes so there is something to suit every home. Designs can range from minimalist contemporary to intricate antique patterns. Some are even designed with a frame that can expand and compress to fit a range of fireplace sizes. Most Fireplace candelabra are commonly made from cast iron, wrought iron or metal but other materials include graphite and wood. The commonly used color finishes include black, silver, brushed silver, bronze, gold and copper washes.
Fireplace candelabra are designed to hold pillar, ball, taper or tealight candles. The most popular of these shapes is the ball and pillar. Candle cups with a diameter wide enough for pillar candles can usually also hold ball candles and vice versa. Both candles and candle cups come in different sizes, usually three to four inches, and so these should always be noted before shopping. Prices for these unique fireplace accessories can vary greatly and can depend on many different factors. Generally, however, they are much cheaper online and there are many good websites selling both modern and antique candelabra. Some stores and websites provide a custom design service.
