Rustic Lodge - Sconces

While pragmatism, frugality, utilitarianism and functionality are still the most dominant values expressed in the Rustic Lodge style, there are key exceptions where flourishes of decorative artistry crop up. One of these exceptions is in the designs of wired wall sconces. Rustic style has always had a close relationship with blacksmiths and metal work, not only because of the historical need for hinges and horseshoes, but also because of the scarcity of choices available to the builders of Adirondack lake houses and western ranches. Wall sconces in this style are almost always crafted from reclaimed wood or wrought iron, often reflecting Arts and Crafts Movement and Mission style influences in their curves and edges. Whether alone or in a pair, Rustic Lodge style sconces shed light on yesterday’s values and the beauty of today.
