A candle holder is a strange home accessory. It is designed to be a container for fire, a place to store and display the illumination of flames, through the holding of candles. This means that when you choose to purchase a candle holder you cant look at it in the void. You have to be attentive to its relationship to the flame, to light, even to heat, and the way all of these factors will affect the room where they are placed.
Taper holders are created to hold taper candles. Taper candles are a slim wax candle that is thinner towards the top of the candle, and thicker near the bottom. These generally require the proper candle holder specific to a certain candle size. Hurricane holders are generally made out of large glasses. The tall shape generally will cover the entire candle. It is designed to protect the nearby objects of the candle from the heat and the flame given off. Generally seen in old lamps.
The first thing you should contemplate is how the light from the candle will fall on the holder itself. Some materials such as glass or crystal will refract the light, glowing under its gentle ministrations. Other materials are opaque, and will absorb the light of the flame. These include certain types of hardwood, slate, or bone.
There are some candle holders that are meant to be used with floating candles. You fill these with water. This type also can be found in many sizes and shapes and for single or multiple candles. Floating candles also come in different shapes so you may choose to purchase ones shaped like flowers or add fresh flowers to surround them.
Wrought iron holders are very popular. These come in many different styles such as free standing floor holders, table top, and wall mounted sconces.
