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.
Candle sconces go way back the 16th century. There are old homes that have brass candle sconces that are really antique. These are a great find indeed. If you want to add the same elegance to your home with brass candle sconces, you can shop for some on your local retail store or you conveniently purchase them online.
There many crystal candle sconces available at the marketplace today. And most of them are designed lavishly or simply to match every person‘s lifestyle. Choose according to your preference. When it comes to these pieces of furniture, you are free to get whichever you like. Your own taste for art will be your guide to selecting what is best for you and your home.
For my bedroom I decide to go with a more traditional look, so I went with a couple of simple metal wall sconces. However, instead of electrical, I went with candle light sconces. These candle sconces projected a nice soft candle light that is just perfect for relaxing when I need to unwind. I also place some scented candles in them once in a while. This not only gives my room a wonderful ambiance, but it also proved me with a little aromatherapy at the same time.
