Wall Sconce LightingSimply Sconces.

Wall Sconces can easily provide general, task, or accent lighting. Many wall sconces are designed to match and compliment a chandelier and foyer collection. Sconce lighting can be used in all areas of the home, and are often used as accent lighting above a mantle or fireplace, above a buffet in the dining area, surrounding a mirror in the foyer or lining a stairway or hallway.  The Featured brand in this article is from Hinkley Lighting and the fixture shown in the photo to the top right is part of the Casa Collection.  Hinkley Wall Sconces are some of the best in the industry.

Sconce SpacingTIP: When hanging a sconce, remember in most cases it should be hung at least 60" from the floor. When hanging two sconces on either side of a mirror or other focal point, space the sconces appropriately according to other decorative elements.
