I LOOOVVVVVVEEEE a good wall sconce! They make every space look more designed, more expensive and more layered. The great news is you can find a ton of great plug-in options these days that eliminate the need to even hire an electrician. I love this for renters! Super easy to pack up and bring with you to the next house. (In fact this was something I learned when we staged the Gentry project – any light fixture or window treatment that is installed in the walls is sold as a part of the house! – all of the hardwired lights and the window treatments were thrown in, which I hadn’t really planned for, ouch!)
But the plug-in sconces are easy to take down and pack up! I love love love these black two-arm sconces from our recent guest room makeover!
Sometimes it is definitely worth the extra cost and effort to hardwire install sconces, especially for a kitchen space. These sconces from Lucent with their flat back plates are COMPLETELY worth it!
Sometimes I think the cotton-wrapped cords are actually really pretty and can be a fun element of the lighting!
In my daughter’s bedroom, we wrapped the cords with yarn as a simple DIY project and I love the touch of color it added!
Here’s a monster round up of all my favorite wall sconces available right now! Do you prefer a table lamp or wall sconces on your bedside? I love that sconces are such a space saver! More room for my mountains of books and magazines that I keep on my nightstand! :)
