Materials for these can vary widely and may include wood, metal, plaster, ceramics, and more. Choosing a material can be important in terms of both function and décor. If the sconce will hold a burning candle or electrical fixture, a non-flammable material would be the safest choice. In a room with lots of wood, a sconce made of matching or complementary wood may be a beautiful selection. Metal, glass, or ceramic pieces can add nice accents to any room.
Candle sconces are an elegant way to have candles displayed on the walls of your home. If you use an interior decorator for any room, chances are he/she will recommend the use of sconces to hold the candles on the wall. Candle sconces can be made of wrought iron or you can have a brass sconce with a hurricane lamp. The plate of the candle sconces that screws to the wall can be made of metal, plastic or brass.
