Swing Arm Wall Lamps

Design Tips:

  • Choose swing arm wall lamps for a small bedroom for one or both sides of the bed to save on space.
  • It’s important not to install a swing arm lamp on the wall too high nor too low. A good rule is to hang the lamp so that the bottom of the shade is at eye level of the person who is seated.
  • Decorate with a swing arm wall lamp that can provide you with different light levels to suit your needs no matter where it’s installed.
A swing arm wall lamp is a type of wall sconce with a movable arm that pivots and swings in different positions. Being able to move the arm allows you to move the light to away or towards you as needed. It’s a wonderful way to provide extra light for tasks such as reading and writing. Swing arm wall lamps are generally one-light fixtures.


Swing arm wall lamps are available in a multitude of styles and finishes. Styles range from contemporary or traditional to casual or elegant. Some finishes include black, natural iron, burnished steel, brushed steel, antique bronze, polished brass, rust, polished chrome, satin nickel, and satin brass. Some swing arm wall lamps are made entirely with one material in one finish from the backplate, arm and hood. Other options include those with fabric or glass shades, which are available in different shapes and colors to suit your interiors.


Swing arm wall lamps may be used in a variety of applications and in different settings such as in commercial or residential spaces. It’s a popular choice, especially in bedrooms that don’t have space for night table, and therefore, replaces the need for table lamps. A swinging arm wall lamp may also be installed next to your favorite reading chair, on each side of a sofa and even in the bathroom. It’s a wonderful way to provide task lighting in a room in addition to general lighting.


It may often be difficult to choose a swing arm wall lamp that’s just right for you because of the dozens of different styles that are available. However, Arcadian Home provides you with excellent choices from only the best manufacturers of swing arm wall lamps, including Cal Lighting, Capital Lighting, Sonneman Lighting, House of Troy and Hudson Valley Lighting.

Q & A of the Day

  • How far does the swing arm extend from the wall. That info doesn't seem to appear on any of the swing arm lamps in which I'm interested.

    I contacted House of Troy in regards to item HT-WS750-OB and was informed that the arm extension is 19".

The head was way too large, not happy with it & was sent back. Also, had to put out for cost of shipping & cost of return after waiting for it to be back in stock. Wished I had compared before!
