1. Highlighting Artwork
There are two types of sconces. The first style extends from the wall and usually has a fabric or metal shade. An example of this style is the Princeton Senior Sconce from School House Electric and Supply, CO
Princeton Wall Sconce, School House Electric and Supply Co.
This style is often used to highlight a feature in a room, for example a bookshelf, or for extra task lighting. They are frequently used in small spaces where there is no room for a lamp, for example behind a sofa or behind the bed.
The second style lays flush against the wall. It is reminiscent of the wall mounted candelabra.
Dean Library Sconce, Circa Lighting
This style is typically used to add ambiance to a space. They add a little glitz and glam. You will often find them hanging above the fireplace, or in the bathroom on either side of the vanity mirror. This style is perfect to help you add a touch of whimsy to any space.
I have been oohing and ahhing over the variety of sconces on School House Electric and Supply Co. and Circa Lighting lately. Their styles are so different and yet I am torn between School House Electric’s fun industrial style and Circa Lighting’s polished and refined sense of style.
Have you been on either website recently? Which style do you prefer?
