Buying Guide

Brightening up your home with an interesting and unique wall sconce might be the touch you need to make your home complete. As well as bringing extra light to the areas you need it most, you can choose from a wide range of different styles. Since there are so many styles available, it can be both exciting and difficult to try and find the right design. Let's look more closely at some of the styles you might see.

Casual draping style

A wooden beam affixed to the wall is the only thing which is holding up the long wire from the light. Hanging down with a light bulb of your choice providing brightness to the room, this style of pendant wall sconce is casual and light and well suited for bedrooms and small living rooms.

Glass effect

With a cast iron or slate frame to hold it to your wall, a light bulb covered with a beautiful glass shade hangs down elegantly. It may be made from real glass, or the effect could be created using other materials, such as a strong iron which has been painted with a reflective silver paint.

Simple pendant sconce

With a rustic silver piece attached to the wall and a clear white shade covering a light bulb, the simple pendant look is a popular style which you're bound to see if you're shopping around for this item. This style does not have the loose wires and draping look that some other styles do, since the lamp and electrical parts are fixed within the wall and the central wiring units. This style is rather decorative which allows you to add some class to your home as well as a practical accessory.

Twisted wall sconce

A popular style in rose gold, this design can also be found in gold, silver, black and white. Two beams extending from the wall to create a triangular shape form the shape of this type of pendant wall sconce. The wire or flexible post is then twisted around the beams to create a unique and interesting look for a modern home. The pendant lamp then hangs down and provides light accordingly when it is switched on.

Circular pendant

Hanging circular pendant lights situated in the center of rectangular or square metal frames are an ideal way to combine a traditional wall sconce look with a contemporary twist. The clash of the very round pendant lamp and the straight and uniform edges of the rectangle border create a style unlike any other and is ideal for large living rooms or bedrooms. There may be three or four of these pendant lamps in a row, and they may be positioned either sideways or forwards.

Industrial style wall sconce

As with many types of furniture, the industrial style is a popular choice for the modern home, but also fits well with the rustic style of cottages and older households. A cast iron fixture to the wall holds the chains or ropes which enable this type of pendant lamp to function. The lamp may be inside an item such as a recycled drinking jar or another glass accessory.
