I bought 2 of these for either side of my fireplace. I had a semi circle console table with table lamps lighting up my living room and really was not happy with the set up. The room is large, yet filling it with furniture made it look small. I was looking to light up the room and get rid of the 2 consoles and table lamps to open up the area. My electrician was beyond impressed with these lights. They are large, and emit light from the top, bottom, and through the frosted glass. It really gives off a lot of light and they look fabulous. I put them on a Lutron wall switch with a dimmer. They dim nicely and look amazing when lit up at full power. I would highly recommend this product. Overstock is awesome. You find amazing products for really incredible prices. My contractor told me that many, many of his clients want lights like this, but either cannot find them or they are unreasonably expensive and they end up purchasing something from the big box stores that are of inferior quality and nothing special. A dime a dozen. Overstock offers unique and special items that I have not found anywhere else.

I had an electrician install it horizontally in a tight space above a medicine cabinet. The best aspect is that the two bulbs provide good light in a dark room. The more difficult feature is going to be replacing the small bulbs when they burn out. It takes some dexterity to fit my hand in the glass shield, remove the spent bulb and then insert and screw a new bulb in place. If you have arthritis, go with a more accessible fixture.
I looked all over for sconces to replace the dated ones I had and it was a job. I wanted something modern looking, but that produced a good amount of light for a decent value. This sconce met the requirements. It looks great, but did not take over the room. It would blend with many different types of décor. Please be aware to use a frosted light bulb, otherwise it casts funny shadows. My husband was able to install it in our existing sconce hookups without great difficulty, so it seems to be fairly standard. I am very pleased with the purchase and would recommend it to others.
We went from those ugly stage lights to these, and what a dramatic difference. Just what we were looking for to bring the house back to mid-century modern. Glowing cylinders on each wall. You will not be disappointed! Less than 20 min to install both.
The sconce is heavier then I had anticipated, adding to the overall look of a high end light. I would say that the picture looks somewhat different then the product. In the picture the sconce looks like it is a slender collander; when it arrived the glass shade is frosted with a wider dimension in the middle. Even though the light is a little different then pictured I will keep the light because the dimensions are as discribed and it functions nicely in the area installed. We installed on a wall that has 3 steps down to the rec area. It's nice to have the light shining down on the steps that also lights the whole area. It's a soft light which provides a nice ambiance.
Changing from 'mountainy' oil rubbed brass to contemporary brushed nickel and don't have time or $ to do it all at once -- this is a great sconce that focuses on the opaque shade rather than the fixture. Just be aware that the light bulbs need to be 'shorter' and it doesn't come with. I love it!
PERFECT MATCH FOR 42 YEAR OLD FIXTURES IN OUR CHURCH, GOING TO ALL LED LIGHTS AND THIS FITS THE BILL FOR MATCHING AND USING DIMABLE LED BULBS. I LOOKED FOR MONTHS FOR A REPLACEMENT LIKE THESE. THANKS AND A EXCELLANT PRICE. THEY USE CANDLERABA BULBS.
Tried several hallway lights before finding this one. Looks simple but great. Put it in a white staircase and the light just blends in very classy to the wall. When you turn it on it casts a soft cone up and down with strong illumination. Looks modern and chic. Got this one since I noticed a similar one in a favorite restaurant.
We had been searching high and low for simple but not "hotel impersonal" wall lamps for other side of our master bed. We had originally purchased way-over-budget lamps at a retail store, but the wiring was way off, so they returned. When I found these on Overstock, they were so reasonably priced and perfect, I was skeptical how they'd look. We were/are EXTREMELY pleased with them. Easy to install, and with our dimmer they're perfect. They also provide enough light for reading comfortably. We are happy customers!
