Wall sconces are all the rage right now, as they should be, because they are like jewelry for your walls and provide ambient or task lighting. But we don’t all have the ability to install hardwired light fixtures or have outlets in the right places for the plug-in options. That’s where candle sconces come in.

Wall mounted candle sconces are just as decorative and they provide the lovely, warm glow of candlelight without having to call the electrician. They are also a relatively affordable update. They are great for dining rooms, hallways, bedrooms, and anywhere you could use a little mood lighting. Use them with LEDs and you won’t have to worry about remembering to blow them out.

I recently installed a set of candle sconces in my dining room, because I wanted to make the center wall more of a focal point and the art piece I had wasn’t filling out the space enough. I don’t have outlets or furniture that could hide plug-in cords nor did I want the expense of bringing in an electrician. So I was on the search for candle sconces that leaned on the side of modern, preferably gold. I loved the round shape of these Cirque Sconces from Zgallerie, which added another dimension to the wall. The gold rings are hammered so they add texture and reflect light when you get closer.
