I gave this sconce five stars because it is beautiful ONCE you manage to put it together. Getting the dang faceplate on the wall was a nightmare! I was missing one of the metal wall anchors and the screws that come with the sconce were long and took forever to screw into the wall. Plus, I didn't understand how the metal anchor was supposed to work so I ended up using drywall anchors and shorter screws. Once the faceplate was secured, everything else was a breeze. I love the sconce. It's a nice size, it's sturdy, it's beautiful and stylish.
The quality of these sconces was very good, especially for the price. We are not handy so we found the instructions in the package very difficult to understand, but we still managed to hang them properly. If you have ever hung anything like this before you probably won't have a problem. Also great that you can get this look without hard wiring fixtures, we are renters so that is not an option. They look beautiful and are very useful as well.
Love these lamps! They make the whole bedroom look elegant and lovely, and yet contemporary. The swinging arm even has an "elbow" so you can really adjust how they come out from the wall. I'm so happy with this purchase! Easy to install and look great. In person they are much better than the photo on here.
These fixtures are well made and I am happy with my purchase. I have a small room and these lamps were purchased to free up space on the end tables. They match the look of the online photo exactly. They are a little tricky to install straight so that the cord cover is perfectly vertical, so take your time mounting the back plate perfectly square.
I really like this little lamp. My only negative comment about it is that I think the installation instructions are terrible. Granted, I am not the handiest person around but the instructions just leave too much unsaid forcing you to have to research on your own how to hang this lamp. I did it on a Sunday and would have called the customer service line but they were not there. Still, it's attractive, serves its purpose and although I don't know how long it will last, I really like it and would order it again. I have a compact fluorescent light bulb in it.
This light fixture is a good value compared to similar items for about twice the price. However, my particular lamp seems to have been assembled with less than optimal care. I installed the lamp (which was NOT simple as the instructions aren't clear on how to use the expandable bolts and did not define the direction of the mounting base) but when I went to turn it on, it didn't light up. When I troubleshot the various things, I found that the pre-assembled part of the lamp had been threaded crooked-- threading the socket on correctly fixed the issue and the lamp now works properly. The lamp shade looks cheapie but I believe I can replace it easily. I give it 3.5 stars but rounded up to 5.
I love these lamps. They are stylish and look great on our wall. The only thing is that both of them came rusted. My husband buffed 90% of it out with some rubbing compound, but it was annoying. We liked them enough to keep them and not spend time packing up and returning, but it was disappointing.
