Needing, Wanting, Loving: Swing-Arm Library Sconces

Happy Monday!  Did you have a good weekend?  I got my car towed (ugh) and missed my favorite Sunday spin class (double ugh), but there were some highlights to it- like when I teared up in Don Jon (bear with me here).  Yes, Don Jon is that cheesy Jersey movie focused on sex-crazed Don (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and full-of-herself Barbara (Scarlett Johansson), but Julianne Moore makes a surprising appearance that caused me to let out a few confusing tears.  It is a trashy movie though, so if you get embarrassed easily don't go see it.  But let's get to the good stuff.  Last weekend I was perusing Instagram and came across this stop-you-in-your-tracks-good bathroom design by Bailey McCarthy:


I am always inspired by Bailey's bold use of color, but what I really loved about her design here were those swing-arm sconces.  What an unexpected touch!  Here are some of my other favorite applications of the swing-arm library sconce:




Although the swing-arm sconce is perfect in the kitchen or bath or above a bookshelf, it adds a unique twist when utilized as a bedroom sconce.  It's also perfect if space is limited and a bedside table and lamp won't fit!




Of course, my favorite lighting vendor, Circa Lighting, offers several versions of the swing-arm library sconce.  Here are a few of my favorites:








So, what's your take on the library sconce?  Love it, or leave it?
