Wall lights are mounted to an interior wall. Since they hug close to the wall, they can work well at the sides of a room or in a hallway. They support the room with extra ambient light and help to highlight the side areas of a room, such as near a seating area or side-table. One or two wall sconces in a room can help support a main light fixture and add extra atmosphere. A wall sconce is installed electrically and usually operated by a wall switch. Great for living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and hallways.
Our European Style invokes a feeling of gathering with close friends in a French parlor, sipping espresso in an Italian Bistro, or traveling by carriage across the paved brick streets of Vienna. Similar to traditional style lighting, our European Lighting Style is highly ornate, and dedicated to elegant lighting designs embellished with sophisticated curves, iron clad scrolls, and nominal use of crystals or beaded ornaments.
Fixtures closely attached to a wall tend to produce more ambient background light. They might be used to support a more central light fixture or as a less elaborate central light. They can produce strong light near to where they are placed. Wall sconces and bathroom lights can add extra light to one side of a room where you need it.
A wall sconce works well as a secondary light in a medium or larger room. Ideal for living rooms and dining rooms, family rooms, bedrooms and in a home office. They also are a good option for basements.
Wall sconces help to light the edges of the room, or to one side where you need more light. They may not provide enough light for the whole room, unless you only want medium light. You'd do well to pair them with a ceiling light fixture, or some lamps.
Attaches to an interior wall. The decorative backplate covers the electrical installation area.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the wall sconce into the building's electrical supply.
The globe for this light touches the wall which looks a bit strange. The perfectionist in me just finds this rather disturbing. Otherwise, it is well made and stylish.
This was our third attempt at getting new wall sconces for our outdated powder room, and the third time was a charm! These lights fit perfectly in the space available. The finish is an antique nickel, which looks very good, and matches other items with the same finish. The curly somewhat art deco-like design looks very stylish and attractive. The shade design goes perfectly with the rest, and I really like the shade size - not oversized compared to the rest, as some designs I have seen, but just the perfect, balanced size. The light is fine, better than with our old lamps. I really like these lamps! Could not be happier.
