Sculptural wall sconces sit at the intersection of art and design. We shed light on nine of our favourites.
The wall sconce has the subtle power to transform any space in the home – be it in the hallway, beside the bed, or in the living room. Originating from the Middle Ages, where a fixture held candles or torches, the wall sconce began to make a statement through the Art Deco period and the mid-century modern movement. In this feature, we’ve sought out nine unique, contemporary wall sconces that explore an artistic approach to materials, shape and most importantly, light.
