This is the second sconce I've ordered from the George Kovacs line. (the first pair I purchased where the glass shade sconces ($107.00), alot of bang for the buck!) You can't beat the design/style and quality for the price.
Clean lines, simple, contemporary. This lamp choice was a compromise between my husband and I. We each wanted something else. In the end I'm very pleased with this lamp. We bought 4. One of them has a crooked shade though.
I bought two of these sconces for either side of my bathroom mirror. They would be a little dim in a bathroom by themselves, but we have a ceiling light in the bathroom as well. They are very classy looking and well built. This was the first time I installed a light fixture and I had no problems at all.
Bought this sconce for my renovated bedroom... it was a little bigger than I thought it would be. Overall I'm happy with it...well made and the soft shade cover adds a bit of texture to the wall. Would love to have some options to change it - different colors and patterns that would fit this specific sconce.
I bought the chrome ones to match the rest of the bathroom fixtures and having looked at nearly all of what was available, these were pretty much perfect. I was prepared to spend a bit more for the right look but was pleased they weren't a lot of money. Pretty easy to install, nice quality of light with the shade and look very nice when lit. I'm glad I skipped the big box stores--no one should be able to walk in and think "Oh, I saw those at X-store too!"
These sconces arrived in a very timely manner, despite 2 being back ordered. All 3 arrived together, in excellent condition, well-packaged. They were not difficult to install and they look really great. I ordered the bronze and they look very up-to-date and have a transitional/modern appeal. Much better than anything you could purchase at Home Depot's or Lowe's and definitely worth the extra dollars as they are not something you are going to change out. The linen shade adds a very elegant look.

The best I could find for the $

I am so picky about scones, I had to search many stores to find what I wanted. I wanted something with clean lines, but not too modern. These were perfect. And you absolutely CANNOT beat the price. The electrician installed them 2 weeks ago and they look fantastic.
These were a great neutral and contemporary touch to our bedroom remodel project. We are completely happy with our entire purchase from beginning to end! They almost give a calming, beach feel to our bedroom....waking up in paradise every morning...how wonderful!!
