During the olden times, candles were used more because they cheap to produce and they worked relatively well considering the needs of the people at the time. Some chandeliers before used numerous candles to light up an entire ballroom and do take note that in a ballroom they utilized more than just one chandelier. Now with the use of electricity, candles became more of an emergency staple, wherein they are more commonly used as backups when a blackout occurs. However, there are those innovative people who see candles as something much more different from just a mere backup. Wall candles are often seen as decorations for different places, and you cannot change the fact that they really make a difference in terms of design.
A candle is one of the most basic objects to make: it is composed of wax and a wick. When you burn the wick, the wax slowly melts, making the wick last longer than it was made to do. Candles take up many shapes and forms with some of them built as tea candles while others as decorative ornaments, the most common candle is the candlestick. Wall candles, however, also use the same principles as other candles. It is just that they are used in a slightly different manner.
In terms of candleholders, they all come in different shapes and sizes. Candlesticks are candle holders made to hold individual candles, but when multiple candlesticks are placed together, it is called a candelabrum. The term chandelier came from the fact that multiple candles were being held up in the air. Tea light candles have a wide variety of holders made for them, such as small glass holders and even multi candle stands. A hurricane stand is sold for decorative purposes, but they can also be seen being utilized as a candle holder used outside the house. A sconce is for wall candles that are often used in groups to promote a certain ambiance in a location.
Despite the loss of popularity, candles are still being used in many different ways. Aside from being an emergency source of light, they are often used as a means to set the ambiance of a room or a specified area. Candle-lit dinners are there to give an aura of intimacy. Restaurants usually use wall candles to encourage a feeling of coziness and an earthy feel.
