Candlelight

Live in rooms full of light.  ~Cornelius Celsus

Candlelight is romantic, mysterious, beautiful, even spiritual. A table lit with candles lends a certain ambience to a dinner gathering and there is an ethereal beauty to the flickering shadows cast on the walls by the flame. The light cast by candles is soft, gentle and welcoming ~ unlike the glare that comes from a 60 watt bulb. There are, of course, times when we need a bright light to do work or read; however, when what you’re looking for is a light that caresses you and fills the room with warmth and comfort, candlelight or a fire in the hearth are the way to go.

Now, when you place those candles in lustrous antique candlesticks, you not only achieve the above mentioned atmosphere, you also add a touch of glamour to the whole room. The quality of old silver that has been polished with love over the years has a deep richness to it, a weathered kind of beauty that comes with age. The candlelight is reflected in the silver, winking and sparkling as it dances over the surface. Antique silver candlesticks are not just for the antique lover. They are for any aficionado of the small dinner party, the perfectly set table, or the flawlessly decorated home. If you want to add a little glamour, a little richness to your table or your home, find a pair of lovely candlesticks ~ and use them.
