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.
If crafting your own candle wall sconces is not your preference and you prefer to purchase, look for styles that will flatter your home’s current look. Many different types exist, including mirrored versions that cast a soft, reflective glow. Soft lighting in the evening creates a relaxed mood that most of us sorely need after facing the daily grind. Life is hard enough without our home lighting being harsh too.
The Internet has a wide array of selection when it comes to brass sconces. Each one differ quality, price and style. Make sure that you compare prices to get the best out of your money.
