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?


  1. I love them everywhere! If I had the space, I would use them!!!

  2. Great photos! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Love the swing arm sconce. You have some great bookshelf details in those shots too.


  4. Love them! The backsplash in that kitchen is to die for too!

  5. Love it! I actually have one of these beside my bed, as a space-saving technique-it's a tight corner with no real room for a floor lamp. I think it's perfect, though mine isn't nearly as nice as the ones you featured! Might be time to upgrade :)

  6. Thanks intended for discussing this unique how to hide your tv,I actually want to invest in mode and even indicated equally at our TV. Cheers!

  7. The bedroom scones seem to be hung way to high - both for concentration of light and to be able and reach the on and off switch. Never thought of using them in a bath or kitchen. Might give it a try one day.

  8. Such a seemingly simple thing as this can make your property look more sophisticated, elegant, and homier, or give it a more professional look according to the type of your business. outdoor/security lighting


What say you? I'm all ears.
