Candelabra is a set of branched candlesticks, each with arms that can hold multiple candles. A single such piece is known as a candelabrum. The word comes from Latin

Although the electrification of interior lighting has relegated candleholders to the status of backup light sources in most homes and other buildings of the modern era, interior designers continue to model light fixtures and lighting accessories after candelabra and candlesticks. Accordingly, the term “candelabra” has entered common use as a collective designation for small-based incandescent light bulbs used in chandeliers and other lighting fixtures designed to provide decoration as well as illumination.
