The Metal Studio's wrought iron chandeliers and wall sconces with a protective clear lacquer coat will create a beautiful ambience for your covered patio, porch and gazebo. A quick re-spray with Rust-Oleum/Tremclad Clear Top Coat once a year, and they will last a long time!
If your outdoor evenings are usually without a breeze, a good quality candle will do well. The more stearin and less wax a candle contains, the higher melting point and less dripping. Chandelier and wall sconce with glass votive holders are also practical.
On the other hand, if you live in an area with a breeze or wind that makes the use of traditional candles outdoors less practical, we recommend the use of LED (battery operated) candles. There are several kinds of LED candles, pillar candles, taper candles and votives that would fit our chandeliers (the only thing, let us know not to put spikes in the pillar candle holders).
LED candles can be found here.
