Why You Want Swing-Arm Wall Sconces



Lighting,swing arm wall sconces,table lamps

Why – oh why! – are swing-arm wall sconces only to be found in hotel rooms and not next to our own beds at home? Why do interior designers and electricians hate us so much?

Endless minutes of Internet research reveal no ready answer to this question, but it’s easy to guess.

- Once you mount one you’ve automatically predetermined where your bed will be.
- Swing-arm installation is more expensive than just plugging in a table lamp.
- You might change your mind.
- You’re flirting with a permanent 1970s décor scheme.

Okay, so we can call those the reasons why you might not want a swing-arm wall sconce. So, what are the reasons why you do?

1. More Room for Your VapoRub

There is a limit to how much stuff a nightstand can hold, and no one wants to reach that point before the nighttime cold remedies are afforded prime real estate.

And, that’s a lot easier to do when you don’t have to make room for a table lamp. Wall sconces give you way more room for your clock, your medicine, loose change, stuffed animals and other bedtime essentials.

2. That Hotel Feel Every Night

There’s a certain subset of the population for whom this will be a real turnoff, but for the rest of us who never get to go anywhere – ever – it seems pretty cool!

Just think: Now you can pretend you’re on vacation every night. All you need is a phone with a room service button on it.

3. Adjustable Light at Your Fingertips

It’s nigh impossible to scoot a table lamp closer if you need a little extra light without turning on the high beams, but with a swing-arm sconce you can just, you know, swing it on over!

This is pretty great, especially when you don’t want to disturb your partner with a bunch of extra ambient light.

4. Just Plain Cool

Since when was ‘70s décor ever a bad thing? People spend millions to recreate retro, when all it really takes are a couple swing-arm wall sconces.

And a lava lamp.

Hubbardton Forge''s handcrafted swing-arm sconce comes in multiple shade and finish options that make a perfect decor match easy. 

This top-selling swing-arm sconce from AXO Light shimmers in chrome and features multi-directional movement.
