Style at Home with Margie 16.25" Carnival Crystal Whimsical Wall Sconce
For centuries, sconces have been used as lighting options, influencing a subdued ambiance wherever they are placed. From the fifteenth century, more complex forms became popular, and were often found in the homes of nobility as a symbol of luxury and status.
This whimsical sconce offers an abundance of color and delight. Constructed from base metal offset by 80 glass crystal accents colored in vibrant hues of red, green, purple, pink and brown, this piece adds charm and visual interest to your décor. Two candelabra arms utilize colored glass bobaches, which offer two bulbs for just the right amount of light.

Well-lit rooms feature a combination of the three, allowing you to be comfortable without squinting or straining your eyes. The number and types of fixtures will vary with your room sizes, décor and personal preferences.
You have the perfect lamp and you've carefully chosen a shade for it, but what kind of light bulb should you choose? You may not think much about light bulbs, but the kind you choose has the greatest impact on the overall effect and effectiveness of your lamp. Many people make the mistake of buying a light bulb more powerful than they need for a particular lamp. This unfortunately can make a lamp so intense or distracting that it is rarely used. The simple solution to this problem is to use a smaller bulb. Most table and accent lamps require no more than a 60-watt bulb, even if they are rated for something much higher. While it's very important to never exceed the recommended bulb wattage for a lamp, there is nothing wrong with using a less-powerful bulb.
Aside from wattage, there are other factors to consider when choosing a light bulb. Light bulbs come in four basic types: incandescent, fluorescent, compact fluorescent and halogen.
