I really love the look of the Robert Abbey Drexel 16" wall sconce. It has 2 40-watt bulbs in each sconce. If I use 2 of these fixtures (hanging vertically on either side of the mirror) in a 5 1/2 x 7' powder room, do you think it would give off enough light? It is the only room in our home without a window. They also sell a larger version at 24" long ea with 4 40-watt bulbs each but they are expensive ($193 ea for small version, $355 ea for large version) so I would rather purchase the smaller ones if possible.

Those are beautiful. Did you consider putting CFL or LED bulbs in them, so that you can get more light without exceeding the 40W per socket?
