FRIDAY 5 : LIGHTING : SCONCES

I've been on the search for the perfect sconces for our walls in our little cottage and since we are renters with definite restrictions, I’ll be needing a plug-in option vs. hardwire. 

Here are a few options varying in price range and why I love them. I am looking to place some lights on each side of our sofa but these would work great in a bedroom as side table lighting, in the office or any room/space you choose.

WHAT I LOVE: The Price. The style.
WHAT I’M NOT SO SURE ABOUT: The finish. I want a true brass and I’m not so sure this fits that criteria. This pair has a brass finish. Still in the runnings though.

WHAT I LOVE: The shape. The style. How clean and simple it is.

WHAT I’M NOT SO SURE ABOUT: If they will fit the space I need them for (flanking our sofa) and if they will be a little too functional. Also, the price. I will need to purchase two.

 

WHAT I LOVE: The finishes and the quality that Cedar and Moss brings to all of their products.

WHAT I’M NOT SO SURE ABOUT: May be a bit too mid century in style for our home and my personal style. While I can admire midcentury, it’s not a period that weighs heavily in our current space and I’m not sure I want it to right now.

WHAT I LOVE: THE PRICE!!! Pretty much everything that Poly and Bark has to offer but aside from that, I love how simple these are and how timeless they could be. I also love how the style nods to the traditional but also honors current modern trends in lighting as well.

WHAT I’M NOT SURE ABOUT: The scale and if two flanking the sofa will complement the overall scale of the sofa and room in general.

 
 This shows the pendant version instead of the sconce but I do so love the way it effortless steals the show here in  Jen of The Effortless Chic  bathroom redo.

WHAT I LOVE: THE COLOR! The craftsmanship. The style + shape.

WHAT I’M NOT SURE ABOUT: The COLOR! But, I change things a lot and even though this is technically a neutral I’m just not sure that it will fit for the long haul.

 

So, those are my top five picks for lighting, guys. I'm leaning more toward black ones in our space but till can't decide between that finish or brass. What's your fave? Are you making any lighting decisions at home and if so, how are you choosing your favorite for your space? Inquiring minds (me) wanna know.
