There’s something charming about wall lighting, as an alternative to a room illuminated by a single pendant hanging from the centre of a room, lighting at the wall introduces a gentle, lamp-like intimacy.
“Sconce” [skons] refers to wall fixtures that hold light sources and have traditionally held candles or gas lights, where the light was directed upwards. With the advent of electric lighting though, lighting can be directed up or down or even sideways. Barn Light Australia’s sconces use high-end materials and craftsmanship to replicate a utilitarian design that is very much in vogue and which can be incorporated into range of contemporary residential or commercial spaces.

Where to install sconces
Use sconces to provide a focal point in a room. Or install sconces in such a way as to divide a room into different living areas, thereby creating the illusion of more space. Collected in twos or threes over bathroom vanities, sconces both enhance personal space and provide task lighting. Incorporate sconces along the walls of a passage or hallway to illuminate wayfinding. And of course, Barn Light Australia’s sconces can used on exterior walls too.
The halo effect
Wall lighting isn’t designed to light up a whole room, instead the halo created by lighting on a wall works to accent aspects of a room, providing a gentle relaxed feel, and enriching the lived experience of a space. Outdoors, sconces provide an attractive and useful glow without contributing to light pollution. Combine the gentleness and beauty of wall lighting with the clean lines and uncluttered forms of Barn Light Australia’s sconces to express you own creativity.
A glass cover and gloss finish will add sparkle to a room or accentuate the throw-back industrial design of Barn Light Australia’s sconces with raw finishes, chunky cast guards, or pendants that feature exposed bulbs. Choose colours and finishes that merge with and enhance the room decor or aim for something a little more dramatic and create a feature of the lighting. You can pair wall sconces with matching ceiling pendants to bring unity to a larger space. Perhaps create a little old-world charm in a room by combining a collection of china plates, a framed watercolour, a vintage wall mirror, and an Austin Wall Sconce.
