Wall sconces serve two main purposes: to illuminate and to save space. They owe their existence to the pre-modern age when fixtures like these were used to hold candles and torches. And although they’ve now become wildly popular in their hardwired state, candle wall sconces can bring warmth to almost any room in a way that's different from the lighting effect created with electric lights. Hanging candle wall sconces with pictures is a great decorating accent because they can easily fit into narrow and out-of-the-way places and provide an attractive glow of light.
