Rectangular candle wall sconce with a slender frame

Rectangular candle wall sconce with a slender frame

Three Posts™

This candle wall sconce delivers a warm take on modern design, instantly catching the eye with its mixed-material construction. The frame is made of iron and flaunts an open vertical silhouette, gently hanging from a square plaque. Contrasting that, a round wooden candle holder and clear glass shade brighten up the piece. 

Designer Advice:

This item provides the perfect balance of modern and welcoming, meaning it would look splendid in a modern home, and equally good when mixed among rustic, industrial, and farmhouse decor pieces. Aside from that, it works great as a single enhancement, but can also be used in pairs—flanking a mirror, headboard, a piece of artwork, or gallery wall—for more visual impact.

Circular candle wall sconce

Circular candle wall sconce


Best described as modern minimalist, this metal candle wall sconce has been forged into a sleek round shape and finished in black to create a bold statement. It also includes a glass cylinder for decorative and practical purposes, like protecting the flame while giving the sconce a clean appearance.

Designer Advice:

Sure, this candle wall sconce is fairly simple in design. However, it’s just enough to update bare surfaces and make an intriguing focal point with its 15" diameter. Meanwhile, the round plate can accommodate pillar candles up to 4” wide, whether real or flameless. Of course, the choice is up to you, but you can’t go wrong with a scented candle if you want your space to smell good and look chic at the same time.

Latitude Run®

Modern meets contemporary with this pair of candle wall sconces. Taking on a peculiar form, they both feature a tall, iron backplate that playfully curves around the removable glass insert. Plus, they come in a sophisticated black hue to complement any modern color scheme.

$54.99 $55.99

Designer Advice:

Thanks to their lightweight (but durable) structure, these sconces are relatively easy to hang—although no hardware is included. Not sure where to mount yours? The best part is that these wall accents make a nice addition anywhere that needs mood lighting. Some ideas include: the living room, entryway, bathroom, bedroom, home office, den, or perhaps outside on your covered porch.

Square candle wall sconce

Square candle wall sconce

Birch Lane™

Sticking to the theme of geometric shapes, this one has a clean-cut, boxy silhouette. It is delicately crafted from quality iron and comprises a large glass cover, both giving off an airy feel. Completing its modern aesthetic is the powder-coated black finish. 

Designer Advice:

This listing only comes with one sconce, though we do recommend purchasing more (maybe 3 or 4) and arranging them in a straight line (with a few inches of gaps in between each piece) to create an attention-grabbing wall feature with little effort. Although not included, all you need is a screw nail to hang the candle wall sconce up.

Designer Advice:

We love a candle wall sconce that is ready for use, requiring no assembly—and that is exactly what this set of 2 candle wall sconces offers. What’s more, the sawtooth hook on the back makes hanging them a breeze. Neither too overpowering nor too dull, these candle holders add just the right amount of flamboyance to modern and contemporary interiors.
