The sconce is a wall fixture which can be electric or feature candles. Reminiscent of medieval times, however, they were widely used in the XVII century and still are popular choice in lighting fixtures to decorate your wall space, interior and exterior. It is during this time period that lighting experts believe the sconce started to develop as a fashionable piece in additional to being practical. In Italy, a mirrored piece was used behind the sconce to create illumination. It was also the Italians who began to design a more elaborate sconce by adding the sconce to corbels. It was not uncommon for sconces to be large sized at that time, they varied in high from 1‘-5‘. But keep in mind the sconces were featured in large places, such as castles and churches. The sconce of today is usually much smaller and appropriate to the size of the rooms in homes. Architects and interior decorators use sconces to decorate as a staple of their design scheme. The sconce never fails to deliver in creating style and atmosphere.
