SconcesShop Sconces and Modern Wall Lighting
One of the best ways to play with lighting and ambiance is by using wall sconces. The first sconces were fire torches lining the walls of medieval castles, but they have since come a long way. Now, home decorators and designers use them to cast beautiful light and shadows throughout a home. If you're looking for sconces, whether you want something simple or something that makes a statement, check out the online inventory available from Broome + Greene today.
Advantages of Wall Sconces
Designers know the benefits of using sconces, but most homeowners tend to overlook them. Maybe it's because they're so small and unobtrusive; but that's exactly what makes them great. Sconces provide beautiful ambient glow and focused lighting that's useful in just about every single room of the house, including the oft-forgotten about nooks and crannies like hallways and stairwells. This allows you to highlight important architectural detail or artwork, or draw the eye towards a window, fireplace, bed frame, or other focal point. They can also serve as wonderful task lights when installed near a desk, reading chair, or bathroom vanity.
More than that, sconces are the perfect space-saving solutions. Modern home design is all about simple, clean lines and sometimes too many table lamps and floor lamps can run the risk of looking cluttered. By placing lights on the wall, you can free up valuable table space and walking room. Because of this, sconces are especially great for long narrow corridors and rooms with very high ceilings or very low ceilings where it may not be possible to hang a pendant. Instead of washing a room with bright overhead light, you can simply pull light from thoughtfully placed sconces and manufacture the ambiance how and where you want it.
While sconces can be standalone pieces, they're often use in pairs or groups to create a beautiful balance of light. Examples of this are putting wall sconces on either side of a bed above the night stands, or on either side of a vanity mirror in a bathroom. It's also common to see wall sconces framing a window, bookcase or doorway, or paired up along the wall of a home theater or home library.
