Swing Arm/ Directional Wall Sconce: This style is the most practical design of wall sconce, where a swing arm sconce can be paired on either side of a bed. One of the more popular functions of ˝task lighting˝ and making it fun to read in bed. Directional wall sconces are also are a great way to highlight areas and elements of interest in a room.
Aside from these highly utilitarian uses, sconces mounted on outside walls are simply appealing, accentuating yard features or seating areas and providing a stylistically refined solution for contemporary exterior lighting needs.
Normally they are not super bright. They are just subtle and give off just enough light to add a little accent here and there and to provide just enough light to see where one's going. So maybe today you walk around the side of your house on a path you‘ve created, but at night you stumble through the dark trying to get to your backyard!
Made of natural materials, there are sconces fashioned in any number of shapes, from simple rectangles, semi-circles, stars, and cylinders to an inverted semi-circular stair step shape known as the ziggurat. There are many materials used including clay, ceramics, glass and various metals. Regardless of what style you choose, you will love the luminosity that filters through the sconce in a soft, ambient light. With the current technology in lighting, you will never have to squint when looking directly at them while lit.
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.
