The holidays are coming at us fast and furious – where exactly did 2011 go? It’s likely you’re focusing on sprucing up the high traffic areas of your home – the kitchen, the dining room and many of your living areas. Does any of your family fly in for the holidays? Will they be staying at your home? Switching out your current guest bath lighting with a few of our must-have vintage wall sconces can easily make them feel right at home for a few days.
The Bostwick Bath Light (top) is an updated version of traditional wall lighting. This mini gooseneck sconce is perfect for those searching for a classic and timeless light fixture. The opal glass shade focuses light downwards, as opposed to outward, all while emitting a flattering glow throughout the surrounding area. It could make for a desirable vanity lamp or a bedside reading light too.
For those of you that prefer a more feminine touch, the Sidney Wall Sconce (middle) features a delicate, tulip shaped glass shade. When paired with its candelabra base and spindle like arm, the Sidney Wall Sconce revolutionizes elegant vanity lighting. Such a classic design is likely to remain in style for years. The hurricane style glass isn’t the only unique feature of the Sidney; the mounting plate is long and lean, as opposed to a normal square or circular styles.
Last but not least is the Calhoun Bath Light (below). Art Deco characteristics, like the cubic shade and a clean, sleek design, make up the Calhoun’s appearance. Seemingly meant for contemporary bathrooms, your guests will take note of the beautiful design and the minimal amount of space it requires. While you can find the Calhoun in our Vintage Wall Sconces category, this light fixture can be utilized in almost any design scheme.
