SCONCES

December 08, 2017

Whether illuminating an entry hall or flanking a tall headboard, wall sconces operate as decorative yet practical additions to your space. This week, we bring you five unique wall-mounted lights that act as functional works of art.
Gioielli
Giopato & Coombes, 2017
Gioielli is defined by the juxtaposition between different shapes and materials, and the contrast between its gold metallic structure and emerald murano glass “gems.” The light presents an artistic design that instantly becomes a statement piece.
AUSTERE
Hans Verstuyft, 2015
The Austere wall sconce emulates a visual lightness, retaining the minimalist characteristics that define Hans Verstuyft’s entire Austere collection. Elegant and architectural, this versatile lamp has endless potential to add ambiance and style to bedrooms, living spaces, and commercial environments alike.
COBRA
Greta Grossman, 1950
The classic Cobra lamp takes its name from the oval shade, which is reminiscent of a Cobra’s neck. A solid brass arm joins the wall base to the shade that can be tilted 90 degrees from vertical to horizontal and can be rotated 360 degrees.
BL7
Robert Dudley Best, 1930
Robert Dudley Best was fascinated by the Bauhaus movement’s lean design and revolutionary demands for a new era free from superfluous decoration. It was in this spirit that he designed the Bestlite lamps. The unique aesthetic and functionality have made it a contemporary design icon.
BOLLE
Giopato & Coombes, 2016
Giopato & Coombes have expanded their breakout Bolle collection to include a series of wall sconces and floor lamps. Bolle is inspired by the lightness of soap bubbles as a metaphor for the immateriality of light.
