“If you can't per­ma­nently hard­wire a wall for sconces, con­sider sim­ply wall mount­ing them with a cord that runs to a wall out­let,” Nancy from King's Chandelier says.

Shades

When pur­chas­ing lamp shades, Nancy ad­vises that you look for those with light fabric on the in­te­rior. “This will help com­bat the ef­fect of heav­ier fabrics used on Vic­to­rian lamp­shades,” she says.

Au­then­tic­ity

Nancy also sug­gests that you add wall sconces where ap­pro­pri­ate. Not only do they add an­other layer of light, but the right sconces make pe­riod dé­cor feel more au­then­tic and can en­hance art­work or even serve as art­work them­selves. “If you can’t per­ma­nently hard­wire a wall for sconces, con­sider sim­ply wall mount­ing them with a cord that runs to a wall out­let,” she says. “Metal or paintable cov­ers are avail­able to cover these cords. We are happy to put switches on our sconces for such ap­pli­ca­tions.”
