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.
They also have become a great choice as accent lighting over a table lamp. If you have small children in your home, because they do not have the cords that toddlers and children could play with.
Wall art is not the only type of decor that can be displayed in a master bedroom along with candle wall sconces. Add a touch of exquisiteness and elegance to a master bedroom with the addition of a cast resin or marble sculpture displayed on a plaster, marble, or cast resin pedestal. Attractive and highly stylish pedestals range from the very affordable to the very expensive, but they are equally as stunning and dramatic when placed in a master bedroom. Select a tall pedestal and sculpture and it can be enhanced with a set of candle wall sconces displayed on both sides. Place a mirror in back of the display to provide a view of all sides, and mount the sconces on both sides of the mirror. It will look exceptionally rich and impressive.
Candle sconces also differ in size. They typically have a height 15 inches and project 7 inches from the wall. The price of candle sconces may range anywhere from $60 to more than $100. Brass sconces are really a good addition to anyone‘s home. It can be a great heirloom too, which can be passed on from generation to generation.
