Wall Sconces From the Beginning

Posted on June 10, 2014 in General Information

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.
