Hi internet friends! I am mixing it up a little and talking about something else I’ve had on the brain lately. SCONCES! Who doesn’t love a good pair of sconces? If you don’t have any, you don’t know what you’re missing! Last week I got the musical chair itch in our house and had Blake move a pair of sconces from our office to over our couch. The way our couch has been placed right now left no room on the ends for lamps and the table we had behind it with lamps on it was just too short. I was sort of fretting over it earlier this week and then realized sconces could solve all my problems because I can hang them at the appropriate height!
SO ….I’m including in the list the pair of sconces we moved but rounded up a few more sets along with some inspiration pictures to help you realize what your house might be missing 🙂
I think when people thing of sconces they think about bathroom or hallway lighting but these days I think you can use them in so many other places! My favorite place to see them is bedside. There is something so CLEAN about a nightstand with no lamps! You know?! Ok…let’s jump in to some of my affordable favorites!
I think these look incredibly clean and give a modern traditional vibe! You can find them HERE:
Again with the modern traditional! How cool would these be in a powder room with Edison bulbs? I prefer swing arm for places that you would use for reading so that makes this one not so functional for bedside or living room but…all the heart eyes for an entry or bathroom! #amiright You can find those HERE:
Ok I have been trying to find a place to use these for SO long!! How cute would these be in a boys room? A man cave? Shoot….bedside anyone!? …So affordable! You can find those HERE:
Someone please redo their master bedroom and put these beside the bed. I LOVE these!! Or in an office? or a living room? These are a dream! You can find them HERE:
Ok so these are the ones we have in our living room now! They give a nice glow but they’re a little more “safe” than the others I’ve listed 🙂 You can find them HERE:
So now that you’ve seen some affordable options (Y’all I shared 5 but there are SO many good ones out there!!) Let’s look at some inspiration!
There’s just something so fresh about a wall mounted light beside the bed…I think lamps on a nightstand can really weigh down a room subconsciously….
Ok how smarty pants is this?? If shabby chic is your vibe then you’ll love this! Can’t you see these flanking a bed or a couch?
No room in a living room for end tables and lamps? No problem!

I definitely dig anything on a pulley but this wouldn’t be the light I would choose to be honest. Here’s a tutorial of how this is put together but I would swap it out for something with a more low profile shade or even just a plain low wattage Edison bulb.
Don’t even get me started on nursery potential…..
You see, can we all agree lamp lighting is the best lighting? It’s the most flatterning….it’s the most calming. To have light at your eye level casts less shadows than an overhead light. To me, a sconce is a nice clean lamp light that I don’t have to dust around 🙂
I hope you’ll leave here inspired with some affordable ideas that even the most novice DIYer can take on! Have sconces you love?? Drop a link to them in the comments so others can see! Have a great week! More to come on Lindberg Cottage soon!
