ggrd Wall Sconces May 01st, 2018 - 14:32:01
Torchiere sconces have a rather long base that is modeled on the typical torchieres. They offer a soft glow on the very top and these are very decorative lamps to use, however they are not so great for task illumination. By using various sconces in your home you can easily match any existing furniture with your chosen lighting fixtures. Due to the many different prices, you won`t have to search hard until you come across the perfect piece that will complement your home decor in style.
These are wall mounted light fixtures that can give an ambient lighting as well as accent lighting with ease. They can easily complement any home light accessory including ceiling chandeliers or table and floor lamps, and due to the fact that they are reversible (they can be turned upwards or downwards), they are very versatile and flexible.
Using these pieces in the family room is a great idea as well. They can be used, not only for decoration and a bit of light, but also as a shelf to hold that special photo. If you find one that doubles as a small shelf it works well to double up on them and place them on the wall on either side of a large picture with two smaller pictures sitting on the shelves. It gives a feel of balance and organization while showing off those special photos. At the same time it gives a feel of home to the room.
A small bathroom might have a small and simple vanity with a very ornate mirror with a carved wooden frame painted in gold leaf. The walls are faced with pale ceramic tiles and in this case a single wall sconce with a bracket made of oil rubbed nickel and a simple, frosted glass shade is put above it. The frosted glass shade echoes the white of the vanity, and the dark metal of the sconce`s base contrasts with the bright gold of the mirror frame.
