Natural light can be both a great way to illuminate a space and save energy.  We are living creatures after all and light from the sun is our biological imperative.  Some homes do not have features that would allow natural light to be used as the main source of light inside the home.  For this reason and others, we do require artificial lighting.  You can probably think of another time when artificial lighting would be necessary.  Did you guess?  Yes, at night.  And, since most parties are held in the evening, this is another time when ambiance lighting is key.  You certainly want your lighting to create an intimate and warm tone in your space.

You can achieve this with the wall sconces we’ve discussed above.  In fact, many of the decorative wall sconces you’ll find on your search browsing online can also look like artwork.  Some are handmade by local artisans.  Even some of the more mass-produced commercial sconces can have a nice look to them.  You might have a more candle lit idea in mind.  In this case, the easiest way to go is with tea lights.  You know these, they are the little candles that you can place in a variety of holders.  There are even pieces that can be hung on a wall to give you that wall sconce you’re looking for.  These tea lights can also be placed on a table top or fireplace mantel for a nice look.

Another very effective looking option, particularly for a more traditional style of furnishing might be a retro aluminum wall sconce – or a series of them – lining a drawing room or a hall. The Eames Era decorative style included a very attractive range of aluminum wall sconces featuring perforated and pleated finishes that still look very attractive today.

You might also like to look for wall sconces in a specific style or made from a particular material. Browse through the following extra pages: wrought iron candle wall sconces, wooden wall sconces, oil-rubbed bronze wall sconces, chrome wall sconces.
