If you want that traditional look for the table, you will need to look for holders that work with tapers. Though these will generally drip wax, they are still the most elegant look. Here again, you can find single taper holders as well as multiple such as a candelabra.
You should also consider the way shadow will fall on the space. When a candle flickers it will cast a glow. In the absence of this glow, shadows will be created. These shadows can be warm companions to the space, or evil demons that lurk over everything. However it is difficult to plan for the way shadows will fall, until you have actually placed a candle in the space.
Many people opt for using tealight candles. These are convenient for many reasons. They will come in their own little tin so they do not tend to be messy. You can get candle holders than have room for just one tealight and spread them out throughout the rooms. Or, you can get a candle holder that holds several tealights which is a nice way to get a lot of light in one place. These are especially nice for use at a dining room table in place of the more traditional tapers.
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 majority of pillar candle holders have a very wide bottom- up to 3 or 4 inches in diameter- to hold candles which means that unusual shaped candles will generally fit into the holder.
