The simple grid design compliments just about any architectual design you can think of, except maybe ultra modern. It should satisfy anyone looking for a light that is not overly ornate or far-out modern. Made of cast aluminum, I expect this lantern to last for many years. This is a large fixture so it goes best in a large entry way. There was a slight, almost imperceptible misalignment in the orientation of the base to the lamp. If the base was mounted true, the lamp would be slightly off from vertical. I would not have noticed were it not for the vertical siding that the fixture was mounted on. Otherwise, the Minka Lavery outdoor wall sconce would have received a 5-star rating from me.
I was a little hesitant about purchasing the lamps online. I usually like to see the product I am purchasing before hand. However, these lamps are absolutely gorgeous and look stunning on the outside of my home. The product quality is also great for the price they were. I would recommend this product to anyone unsure about buying online.
