Some companies make their sconces out of clay, leaving the natural look and feel of the material intact. Other than the light emanating from inside, they look like historic artifacts that may have come from an archaeological dig.
Modern Sconces: The styles are generally purposeful, straight lines with little decoration of the metal and glass accents which will create a mood of opulence. Many available in polished chrome and antique bronzes.
Metal and matte glass sconces contain specific drawings and cutouts such as Acoma bears, geckos, kokopellis, chilies, ponies, petroglyphs, and many cowboy designs. There is even a wall sconce shaped like a cowboy hat. Most sconces are available in your choice of outdoor or indoor wiring and you can even buy just the cover to replace a cover on an existing sconce.
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.
Indoor sconces are an unobtrusive size, yet offer lighting for both functional and decorative uses. They work wherever you want soft light, such as in an entryway, hallway, bathroom, bedroom and in the ever-popular theater room. These sconces can also add complimentary ˝mood˝ lighting around a favorite Southwest painting or gorgeous entry art display.
