Modern Wall Sconces

A modern wall sconce is a great way to light up a room or hallway that’s short on floor space. Not only do they provide illumination, a contemporary wall sconce can also add that extra dimension of modernity and style to a room. Lamps USA has light fixtures and sconces for every space- from bedrooms and bathrooms to hotels and hallways. When selecting a wall sconce or fixture, make sure it’s consistent with the style of the room or space it’s going to be installed in.

Modern Wall Sconces are often clean, geometric, and sharp-looking. Contemporary sconces also frequently feature brushed nickel, chrome, or oiled bronze finishes that can complement any color palette. Wall lamps free up floor space, letting you maximize space in any room. Some modern wall lamps have shades, which come in varying levels of opacity.  Lamp shades, as in floor lamps, control the direction and intensity with which the light escapes the lamp. Check out our guide to choosing a lamp shade for more on how to pick the right lamp shade.

Whether you want a classic candle wall sconce, a contemporary wall sconce, or something extra unique, you want to make sure it matches the style of the rest of your furniture. A living room with antique furniture would odd with modern wall sconces, and a modern, minimalist apartment would look strange with vintage wall sconces. If you really fall in love with a modern wall lamp, you can also upgrade your furniture to match it! Lamps USA carries a wide selection of furniture from nightstands to coffee tables.

Choose the Contemporary Sconce For Your Space

Another factor to consider when selecting wall lighting is the purpose that the sconce will serve. A wall light or sconce that points up provides ambient lighting and brightens the room, while one that points down provides specific task or object lighting. For bathroom lighting, a series of bright vanity lights can provide the light you need for grooming or applying makeup. Some sconces provide light in all directions, and some can be re-positioned with a swing arm or pivot. Modern wall sconces come in practically any shape and size, so make sure you get the right one for your space.

The effect of your wall lighting is also highly dependent on the light bulb installed in it. To lower your electric bills, equip your contemporary wall sconces with energy-saving LED bulbs (Lamps USA also has a selection of wall lights designed for the brightness of the LED bulb). For something softer and inexpensive upfront, traditional incandescent bulbs are common. Workplaces and businesses that need a lot of light that’s evenly spread frequently use fluorescent bulbs. We have a handy light bulb guide to make sure you equip your modern wall sconce with the right type of bulb!


Whether your taste involves modern or contemporary fixtures, more traditional wall sconces, LED wall lights, swing-arm wall lamps, or anything your space requires, Lamps USA has a light to suit your needs.
