Ancient civilizations, such as the ancient Egyptians and ancient Romans, were known to have used candles for illumination. Unlike today’s candles, which are commonly chemical-based, they used candles made from plant or animal extract. In the Middle Ages, torches supported in scones by brackets provided light for dark castle corridors. These forms of light were the early predecessors of today’s Traditional Wall Sconces. No longer do we use fire torches to illuminate homes, but rather, wall sconces with light bulbs. These types of wall sconces may also be used to illuminate commercial spaces, such as offices and retail stores, and are available in a wide range of styles.
The image on the left of the Wilmette Victorian Traditional Restoration Wall Sconce is one example of how a traditional wall sconce may be used in your home. Notice how it hangs on the wall not only to cast a light on the frames, but to illuminate the space with a soft and pleasant glow of light. Take a closer look and you’ll also notice that the wall sconce’s finish complements the finish of the cabinet’s knobs, and blends well with the color of the countertops. This simple yet stylish piece features an oak leaf brass cap and a rimmed, frost glass shade that resembles a blooming flower. It’s a beautiful and elegant traditional wall sconce that will look stunning in most any indoor setting, and may even be used in pairs for a symmetrical look. Moreover, it may be used in different settings, such as beside an entryway or a large mirror.

  • 2 questions: How deep is it (from wall out) What bulb size (watts)
    Arild Feb 01, 2013
    The wall projection is 3.5" and it uses 5W night light bulb. Please be advised that this is indeed a night light and not a large wall sconce.

Enhance Walls with Divided Wall ArtDec 10, 2012

If you’re looking for a change of scenery when it comes to wall art sans the usual framed painting or wall decor, divided wall art can liven up your walls in many different ways. Typically, it is a grouping of panels that when hung together create a single scene or abstract. Perhaps the most famous type of divided wall art is the diptych—an artwork divided into two parts and the triptych—an artwork divided into three parts. They can be framed or unframed canvas or even decorative metal. Here are some intriguing and clever ways to use divided wall art. Lord Bodner's Octopus Triptych wa...(Read More)
