Recently, we gave St. Rita’s Catholic Church in Dallas, Texas a whole new (and energy efficient) look. We installed our 8W G40 Hybrid LED lights in the chandeliers over the pews, giving the church a clean, bright glow. Marc Migliazzo of EIS Lighting in Dallas helped us with the project – great job, Marc!
The word “sconce” comes from the Latin word “absconsus,” which means “hidden or concealed,” so if you’ve ever seen a concealed light attached directly to a wall (rather than hanging from a ceiling or standing on the floor), then you’ve seen a wall sconce. Wall sconces are very popular today and usually are shaped so that the light extends upward, however, they weren’t always like that.
