Modern wall sconces are very popular with many homeowners, however there are many raised eyebrows when they find out that initially wall sconces came into existence long before electricity was discovered. They were used to secure candles to the walls of homes, from modest residences to extravagant manors, and provide lighting to rooms, staircases, hallways, and the exteriors of dwellings.
Wrought iron is absolutely beautiful, and I like it so much that I have been decorating my home with it for years. Just imagine my delight when I found some lovely metal wall sconces to add to my collection. I liked them so much that I put some in almost every room in my home. These metal sconces come in a variety of unique styles like battery operated, electrical, or even a practical metal candle sconce. With all these different styles available, you will be able to turn just about any room into your home into a work of art.
A Sconce can create a warm and inviting feeling with its illumination, color and design. They can provide soft and comforting lighting for watching movies or just cuddling up on the couch. They can also put off enough light to perform task and to read by. They are a very unique and versatile lighting fixture.
The Mission Style: Craftsman wall sconces have a distinct basic style with strong structure, clean lines, and organic materials such as mica, wood, and copper. It focuses on a handmade look in contract to a factory reproduction. The Mission style emerged from the Arts and Crafts period and is still quite popular today. This style has primitive, plain lines and usually displays darker, warmer finishes.
In the early days of before electricity a candle wall sconce was typically the lighting in a home. Now they are used just about in every space in home. Including outdoor wall sconces that accent the exterior of your home. Exterior wall sconces are a little different from interior wall sconces. Because they are typically all sealed up to protect them from the elements. But they still serve the same great function of the interior lighting fixture.
