Finding the Right candle-holders for You

For centuries, candles have been used in religious ceremonies such as Hanukkah, provided light to work or read by and more. During meals, the soft glimmer of candles adds warmth to a dinner table that no lighting solution could possibly imitate. With the right antique or vintage candleholder, candles can elevate a table setting or just help support your efforts to create a romantic atmosphere in any room.

When you combine the distinctive glow of a candle with a candleholder that matches the color scheme and decor you’ve painstakingly put together, the result can feel like magic. Finding the candleholder that best meets your needs can be daunting because you’re essentially bringing a piece into your home that is as important as the candle itself. Unsurprisingly, venturesome designers over the years have crafted innumerable alternatives to the traditional form of candleholders, and today a broad array of these decorative objects can be found on 1stDibs, whether they’re 19th-century candleholders made of silver or sleek mid-century modern glass candleholders for an understated accent to your dining area.

Try a tabletop orb candleholder from Lynne Meade Ceramics for a distinctive interpretation of this long-loved furnishing. An alluring pair of Georg Jensen stainless-steel candleholders, featuring pronounced organic curves, or Art Nouveau–informed natural-world motifs, on the other hand, can bring a dose of sculptural elegance to your living room.

If you’re more inclined to opt for antique or vintage pieces, find a collection that includes everything from simple wood taper candleholders to elaborate candelabras of gilt bronze or cut glass on 1stDibs now.

Questions About Graduated Candle Holders
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Hurricane candle holders are glass cylindrical domes which go around a candle to protect the flame from getting doused. These candle holders can also be attached to the wall as a hurricane shade.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    How tall a candle holder should be depends on the size of the candle you’re using and the overall look of the room. Compared to a candle, a holder should be at least as tall. When choosing candle holders, choose ones that won’t obscure the view. For example, lower candlesticks and candelabras work best on dining tables because they allow you to see the person across from you. On 1stDibs, find a range of candle holders.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 30, 2023
    The difference between a candlestick and a candle holder is specificity. A candlestick is a tall turned decorative object typically used to display taper candles. Any object made specifically to hold candles is a candle holder. Candlesticks are candle holders, but there are other kinds, including tall shades called hurricanes and small cylindrical containers called votive cups. Shop an assortment of candle holders on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    One of the most common candle holders in use during Medieval times was the simple candlestick.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022

  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 15, 2023
    Some of the most common types of candle holders include candlesticks, candelabras, hurricanes and votive cups. A candlestick is a column-like holder for tapers, while a candelabra is a multi-armed taper holder with a single candlestick-like body.

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Because pillar candle holders burn into themselves, they do not need a candle holder. But it makes sense to have a pillar plate at least to prevent wax residue from ending up on your furniture.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    You can use a variety of materials instead of a candle holder to serve the purpose of an actual candle holder. Put pillar and votive candles on decorative plates or trays, or rest them on a decorative tile, coaster or wood slice. You can drop votives and tealights in shallow bowls, clay pots, wine glasses and other vessels. On 1stDibs, shop a wide range of decorative accents.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 31, 2023
    What tall candle holders are called varies. Holders intended for pillar candles are hurricanes and are often made of glass.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A wall-mounted candle holder is called a candle sconce or a wall sconce. Sconces come in a variety of colors and shapes, sure to suit any decor style. You’ll find a wide range of candle sconces in a variety of decor styles on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 17, 2023
    What an old-fashioned candle holder is called depends on its design. A tall holder meant for a single taper candle is a candlestick, while taper holders with arms that branch off a central column are candelabras. Shop a range of candle holders on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2021
    A candle holder with multiple arms is called a candelabra or candelabrum.

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2023
    To tell if a candle holder is solid antique brass, you can try placing a magnet on it. Brass is not magnetic, so if there is any attraction, the piece is unlikely to be solid brass. On 1stDibs, shop a collection of candle holders.
