Beautiful Southwest wall sconces are available in an array of colors, materials, styles, and hand-painted designs, making it easy to find the right sconce to fit any traditional, rustic or modern Southwest decor.
Sconces help to illuminate darker areas in patios or gardens, making it possible to see clearer certain obstacles that may cause falls or accidents. Imagine going home in the night only to take a fall by tripping over some toys that your kids left out before retiring for the night.
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.
When looking for a great gift for that hard to buy for person, consider gifting with iron sconces. They will also make a great wedding gift for a newly married couple that is just starting out and wants to provide their new home with a look that is welcoming and stylish.
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.
