6 Exquisite Sconces to Light Up Your Life

You’ve Got the Bright Idea

What better way to light up a room than a sconce (or 2)? Here is a round-up of a few lovely lights to warm your home.

The Eclipse Wall Lamp by Castro Lighting comprises two rounded brass plates, one placed in front of the other to create crescents of light. The design recalls an eclipse, when the sun, moon and earth align in such a way that the sun’s rays are only partially visible from earth. Available in gold matte, gold brushed, nickel matte, nickel brushed, black nickel matte, oxidized or copper brushed finishes. $580 each. Accentuations by Design in Brooklyn, New York, or CastroLighting.com.

Reminiscent of the calla lily, the Calla sconce by Sonneman-A Way of Light makes a statement of sophisticated elegance and purity. Soft LED illumination is transmitted through Calla’s translucent petal-like shades, producing a warm glow. $390. Chester Lighting in Chester, NJ and Red Bank, NJ. SonnemanAWayOfLight.com.

Sylvan meets steel in the Brindille Sconce by Hubbardton Forge. The multifaceted “twigs” are forged from round bar stock hammered for texture and shaped by artisans in the company’s Vermont workrooms. The steel sculpture couched beside the square glass tube offers an eye-catching accent. Available in various finishes and glass colors (shown is burnished steel with pearl glass). $616. Lighting Expo in Wayne or The Lighting Design Center at Warshauer Electric Supply in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. HubbardtonForge.com.

Hand-cut faceted crystals combine with Florentine brushed goldleaf frames to form the Marquise sconce by Fine Art Lamps. $2,068. Available in right- or left-facing versions and also with a silverleaf finish. Capitol Lighting in Eatontown, NJ, East Hanover, NJ and Paramus, NJ. FineArtLamps.com.

The Victor Wall Lamp, designed by Pierre Dubois and Aimé Cécil for Roche Bobois, adds a stylish touch in brushed brass and alabaster. Price upon request. Roche Bobois in Paramus, New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York City. Roche-Bobois.com.

The Antechamber Wall Sconce by Currey & Co. echoes corbels used in classical architecture but is streamlined for today’s homes. Shown in a silver Granello finish with a natural linen shade, it also comes in a goldleaf finish. $440. CurreyCo.com.
