Help me find the right sconce

listenerJuly 24, 2010

Please help me find a pair of wall sconces for our master bedroom. The wall in question is ten feet tall with windows up to about seven feet. I need two wall sconces to go above the windows, with the light directed upwards and reflected off of a tongue and groove vaulted ceiling, providing ambient light for the room.

We would like to match the other lighting fixtures in the room:

a pair of Tolomeo micro wall lamps


and a Modern Fan Company Ball ceiling fan/ceiling light


The sconces should be uplighting only, brushed aluminum or nickel, and I'm thinking the equivalent of 200W halogen lights. Does this make sense? If so, have any suggestions?

Take a look at this sconce. It's pricey, but design seems good for your room. It is avail in brushed nickel.

I am curious about your use of sconces above the windows. Have you seen sconces placed above windows? Share a pic if you have one as I am interested in the finished look.

If I were uplighting a contemporary bedroom ceiling I would use a torchier lamp - like this one, or maybe some track lighting.
