For example, with the help of “Lanterns” you can illuminate tracks, bridges, stone stairs. They can be hung on trees, trellis and other supporting structures. A successful idea will decorate such a detail of a balcony or loggia.

Design options

Conditionally allocate two types of street candlesticks in the form of lanterns. First variety – models with a small loop at the top. They can be put on any horizontal surface or hang. Second variety – wall-mounted models, which are a design on a metal bar, which is fixed on a vertical surface. Such models resemble the sconce, only the function of the light bulb performs a candle.

As for the candlesticks intended for home use, they are also different. There are models that are put on the shelf or another piece of furniture.

There are options in the form of a desk lamp (created by analogy with wall street products).


Retro-style models are usually performed from an unpainted metal. Possible imitation of rust, artificial composition of the subject. The frame may be concise and simple or, on the contrary, be a beautiful wrought iron “lace”. Another option, ideal for Shebbi-Chic stylistics, is a product painted in white color with imitation of paint plates.

Modern design products are more accurate. For the manufacture of items, either chrome-plated brilliant metal, or a decorative color coated material. Candlestick can have straight face or rounded shape.

Exterior Products differ. There are models resembling antique lights, and there are unusual interpretations in the form of mesh or glass cylinders, original cubes with candle holes. Manufacturers even offer “Openwork” products that resemble a bird cell. At the same time, all listed items as a whole have a similar design, therefore are considered to be lanterns candlesticks despite the cardinal differences in design.

Coloring products are also varied. Snow-white models in laconic design perfectly look in rooms decorated in a fashionable Scandinavian style today. For neoclassics perfectly suitable exquisite white “lace” options. Gentle pink products can decorate any maiden room. Blue color also looks very pretty.

Black candlesticks are appropriate in almost any interior, although they are most effectively looking at a light background (indoors with white walls or in the snow-covered garden). Harmonious, dark coloring items fit into the Gothic style and brutal loft.

You can find a candlestick and for a specific case. For example, you can confess to love, giving a man a product with metal hearts on the edges of the subject.

New Year’s Eve will become even more fabulous if you decorate the celebration with Christmas motifs – the image of the Christmas tree, deer, snowflakes.
