A sconce is a type of light fixture that is fixed to a wall. The light is usually, but not always, directed upwards and outwards, rather than down. The sconce is a very old form of fixture, historically used with candles and oil lamps. They can provide general room lighting, and are common in hallways and corridors, but they may be mostly decorative.

Sconces are typically installed in pairs or other multiple units to provide balance. They can be used to frame doorways or line a hallway. Swing-arm sconces are often placed next to a bed to provide task lighting for reading. All of the other fixtures inside our houses are mounted either in or on the ceiling, or they sit on a table or the floor. Because a wall sconce is hung on the wall, it provides light without cluttering up the ceiling. It also doesn’t take up any space on the floor and doesn’t have to have a table to sit on.
