Happy Friday! I was just thinking about trends and what’s “in” right now… and somehow a year slipped by without me sharing a Trend Alert post to pause and reflect on fun things I’ve been noticing and loving. You know what I’ve been seeing a lot of lately? Candelabra wall sconces! It’s a timeless look I absolutely adore. Therefore, I’m not quite sure it can be classified as a “trend”, but it’s certainly a design element worth noting these days. I have one in my home office, but I’d love to add more to our home. These are lovely for many reasons… installation is a breeze (unlike hardwired fixtures), they still provide warmth & light (candlelight is always romantic), and they add visual interest & illumination to any vignette (just like a regular sconce). There are so many beautiful varieties- both new and vintage, so I wanted to share some of my top picks with you. Click through for my selections and for some inspiration on how to use these in your own home…
Where exactly would you install these? Pretty much anywhere! I’m partial to seeing them installed on each side of a bed, in between two windows (or tight narrow spaces), in the kitchen or dining room- or even running down the length of a hallway.
These candle holder wall sconces are optimal for adding personality and a vintage appeal to any vignette. Play around with colored or unique shaped candles… some of them are made to fit sleek tapers while others are designed for sturdy pillar candles.
I dug up lots of beautiful options- in all styles and price points…

Number three is from my Tuesday Made shop and that’s the one I currently have hanging in my office. We’ve definitely packed more up lately, as they’ve been gaining popularity. I love the simplistic shape and enjoy changing the colored tapers based on the season. I also like the look of some of the bronze options for a more industrial or minimalistic look. I’d love to hear your favorites!
My friend Josh perfectly styled a vintage candle sconce to the right of his bed. Something to note- these layer really nicely alongside an electric fixture, like a floor lamp or hardwired sconce. They seem to have enough contrast and are easier than pairing two traditional light fixtures. Do you like the look? I’m very into it… old meets new is always a win in my book.
Some of the more modern options feel very sculptural, which basically doubles as art. If you’re looking to fill negative space on a wall- give a candle holder wall sconce a try! I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Do you have any of these installed throughout your home? Do you like the look? Have you been noticing more candle holder sconces appearing in your feed lately? I certainly have. Here’s to a lovely weekend ahead! I did want to give you a heads up… next week, Emmett & I are spending time with friends out of cell range, so I won’t be able to respond to your comments in real time as I normally would. However, I did spend a lot of time compiling & scheduling some great blog posts for next week, so please check them out and leave your thoughts or questions as you normally would. I’ll be sure to get back to you as soon as I re-enter civilization… right after our end-of-summer Lake Powell sendoff. Funny enough, after all these years living in Utah, this will be mine and Emmett’s first time exploring Powell. I’m looking forward to unplugging and will be sure to take lots of photos for an upcoming Noteworthy post. Have a great weekend!
