Unique Candle Holders

Updated on February 3, 2016

Variety of Candle Holders

It appears to me that candle holders are among the more creative and most used pieces for home décor there are out there, and for good reason: they look great!

Candle holders come in so many shapes, sizes and themes, that you can't even come close to covering even some basic ones without getting into hundreds of styles.

All you have to do is take one particular style of candle and look for candle holders for it and you'll see what I mean. They seem to be endless in designs and styles.

Whether it's pillar, taper, tealight, or any other type of candle, there are numerous candle holders made specifically for them and your home décor.

They are very simple to ornate or dark Gothic candle holders. No matter what style of home you have or your personal tastes, you will find a candle holder to meet them.

Brass Tree Taper Candle Holder

Here's a very different looking candle holder made of brass in the shape of a small tree. Great idea. This would look really nice in a variety of places within any home, and depending on how it's laid out, would really add a lot to the décor. Lighting the candles on it would also be a lot of fun. I think darker candle colors would work better than lighter colors, as when lit, it would offer a great sheen from the glare of the candles.

Tree Candle Holder

Tropical Candle Holders

For those who enjoy a tropical feel to a certain part of your home, these pineapple candle holders would look fantastic. Add some tropical or pineapple scent candles with it, and you see what a terrific combination they make.

Palm Tree Candle Holder

Keeping on with a somewhat tropical theme, here's another candle holder you could use for that purpose; a palm tree candle holder. It is very unique and different, and would go with any island or tropical theme.

Iron Human Figure Candle Holders

I really like these candle holder figures below, which are made of iron. They could fit in a number of situations. There is definitely an element of an African tribal theme here, and could be an extension of any theme like that, including an animal theme, or even something not in that vein, as the iron makeup of the candle holder bodies also could go the opposite direction of a fantasy or Sci Fi look.

Spiral Candle Holders

What is compelling about these spiral candle holders is what I see as a very versatile piece of home décor. I could think of almost any room and theme where these would fit into well. Any type of spring theme which would include mesh or chairs would go great with these. They would look good around fireplaces; whether on the mantle or the surrounding area.

Well, you get the idea. They are just a great, neutral and natural candle holder that would look fantastic just about anywhere.

Endless Number of Candle Holder Designs

This is one of those articles I was tempted to go on and on as to showing the numerous types of candle holders, but then I realized it would be futile, as I could easily come up with a hundred more and not even touch the surface of what's out there.

For someone wanting to add to their home décor, just think of what style of candle holder or candle holders you would like which would accentuate and blend with the theme of the room you're looking to decorate.
