I have a traditional kind of house, but like contemporary styling. I bought these two lanterns at a great price, and boy are they nice for the money! They look very nice and the double layered lamp shade is made so well. I was more than pleasantly surprised.
I like these lights a lot. The only issue I have is that the swinging arm swings out too far in the space I have. I fear someone will run their face into it! I bought it as a sconce but did not take the time to really check out it's size, I simply fell in love with the little shades and the brownish metal!
It's great item. great price.The room looks very elegant on the wall. The only thing that you should keep in mind is that this lights comes out of wall about 9 inches, so I would not install in a busy traffic area or low heights unless you put a table or something under.
Took us a long time to pick out 2 wall scones to go on each side of our fireplace as we know we will keep them for many years (current ones were 35 years old). After looking all over in our local stores, saw nothing like these and found the price very reasonable. Our home is rather traditional and these fit perfect. The linen is very good quality. The only tricky part was finding the right bulb size to fit as now I know these come in at least 2 sizes (needs the smaller base). With a dimmer switch, 40watt bulbs we can adjust to whatever fits the mood. Well worth the wait. Now trying to decide wich accompanying light fixture to put over our dining room table...
