French Country - Sconces

Candle bulbs and dimmers are some of the most gorgeous advancements in lighting since Edison. Thankfully French country style sconces exist to bring this technology to its peak of perfection, while casting a romantic eye upon the traditions of the not-so-distant past. Sconces with a mirrored back will amplify the light of a single bulb and reflect daylight when unlit; making them a great choice as individual pieces or pairs. Wooden, whitewashed wall sconces often feature delicate carved details, leaf motifs and the elegant earthiness of Gustavian style lighting. Bolder, more rustic pieces feature wrought iron, architectural details like large-scale scrollwork and flourishes of metal art crafted to recreate abstract botanical forms like leaves and branches. French country style lighting can be luxurious, too, with gold leafing, and crystal drops making subtle appearances.
