SCONCES: Early sconce lighting was used to light long dreary pathways in many castles and palaces. Today they are used not just for function but have evolved to become quite decorative. They can be used to add an interesting detail to an uninteresting wall, light artwork, to light a stairwell, or placed beside furniture pieces. Sconces have become a wonderful accessory while continuing to be another ambient light source.
