I love lamp (sconces!)

Admittedly, I am a chronic rearranger of rooms. To be fair, mainly my living room and kitchen/dining areas. Lighting is an issue in the living room, which is the reason I am exploring scones as a way to stop buying accent table lamps or floor lamps. (I could have a lamp + pillow store at this point) Now, as someone that must rearrange, you might be thinking that scones are the absolute wrong choice because they are more permanent than said floor or accent lamps. However, the way my living room is configured there are a few select areas that a sconce, or pair of scones would work, regardless of the furniture configuration. Better yet, I have been looking for plug-in no hard-wire scones. To further narrow down my search, I am looking at sconces that are in the $300-$500 range for a pair, or $250 or less for a single sconces. Keep reading below for a round up of plug-in (no hardwire!) sconces. Due to the limited price point, I focused on larger producers of sconce lighting, with the exception of OneFortyThree. They are a small designer, and have the MOST BEAUTIFUL designs.

  1. OneFortyThree Industrial Wall Lamp // Five colors and two hardware finishes available. And oh so cute.

  2. West Elm + Rejuvenation Cylinder Adjustable Sconces // Comes in two colors, black or white, and they both are simile enough to work in various rooms in your house.

  3. West Elm Curvilinear Mid-Century Sconce Short // One color option, and I feel this would work better in a bedroom, like a guest room over a cute antique brass bed.

  4. CB2 martis Swivel Wall Sconce // Three color options, and I love the long “legs” of this sconce. Little bit of drama, but refined enough to not be the standout piece in the room.

  5. CB2 Swing Arm Wall Sconce // Simple and in a clean white finish. Perfect to blend into the wall or standout against a darker tone.

  6. Urban Outfitters Chelsea Double Sconce // Clearly a take on mid-century era lighting, and comes in two finishes, black or gold.

  7. Urban Outfitters Industrial Sconce // Perfect industrial black sconce for your living room.

  8. Home Depot LNC 1-light Swing Arms Wall Sconce // JUST learned about Home Depot lighting! More of a traditional take on industrial lighting, but I like how dainty she is.

  9. Home Depot Novogratz x Globe Electric Sydney 1-Light // Rea simple, and in one color option. Great for a bedroom.

  10. Home Depot Novogratz x Globe Electric Addison 1-Light Sconce // Chic, with a rounded lid. Comes in one color/finish.

  11. Home Depot AF Lighting Aurelian 1-Light Wall Sconce // GOLD. Could work in multiple rooms of a house, and the finish makes for a lux looking accent.
