sconce roundup

d*s reader kristin just moved up to lovely beacon, ny with her husband and needed some help with finding some great sconces for over her mantle. so i thought it would be fun to do a big roundup, especially since i’ve been trying to do some more lighting posts lately. i’ve chosen a wide range of prices, styles and types (hard-wire, plug-in, candle) so i hope you’ll enjoy the guide. as always, the guide continues well past the fold so please click here to see the full post or just click “read more” below. looking for more product guides? click here to see the rest.

  6. grace says:

    oh lauren, those are GORGEOUS. great find!

    grace :)

  7. karyn says:

    I am desperately looking for bedside table lamps that would clip onto my headboard, so that I can move my bed around and not attach my lights to the wall…any ideas? Thanks!

  8. kristen c. says:

    oh goodness me oh my what a perfectly lovely guide! thanks so much, grace! is it possible to hang every single one of these over my mantle? would that be too much? ;) thank you for this incredibly beautiful and useful inspiration.

  9. Karina says:

    Thanks Grace, I was just looking last night for wall lights to put next to our bed!

    i love these sconces. i have the pistillino on my hallway ceiling and it reflects beautifully.

    i need some for my bedroom though, & there are so many wonderful little gems here

  11. Kristy says:

    As a loyal d*s reader, I just wanted to welcome Kristin to Beacon – I’ve lived up here the past 3 1/2 years and loved every minute! (and thanks for ALL the helpful shopping guides!)

  12. interesting modern takes on the sconce. but why nothing vintage or antique or antique or vintage inspired?

  13. The eclipse sconce is sexy.

  14. Michelle says:

    I have been thinking so much about sconces lately, I keep seeing potential places for them in my home, what is up with that! I love the circles one and most of the really architectural ones here, man, you really got me thinking!

  15. JuliaL says:

    karyn- you may want to check out Ikea if you are looking for something more economical. I have a sconce from there that you can either clip on or mount to the wall.

  16. Rebecca says:

    Fantastic guide, as usual! I want them ALL.

  17. CJ O'Neill says:

    I’ve got some wall lights that might be of interest in this area – each one is cast in fine bone china and decorated by hand with real gold or block colour decoration.

  18. Kristin says:

    I love the dogwood sconce! Karyn – here’s another source of ‘clip-on’ bedside lamps that can actually also be wall or table mounted. Under “Bedhead Reading Lights”:

  19. Jennifer says:

    I have the floor lamp that matches the meridian sconce. It’s one of my favorite purchases!!!!

  20. georgina frost says:

    does anyone make wall lites to order please?

  21. liz ruork says:

    1. grace says:


      i think this piece may be sold out or unavailable- i can no longer find it on the site. sorry. this post was from a while back so sometimes products we include go out of a store’s rotation.


  22. liz ruork says:

    hihi grace tracked it down…it is from pottery barn and of course sod out…. but i have found some on ebay…thank you!!!

  23. Nicole says:

    Hi Everyone! The “dogwood sconce” is actually the “bird and blossom sconce” from Canopy Designs. SOOOOOOOO beautiful. You can find it on their site and order it in any color imaginable!!
