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.
