The Octave 1-light sconce from Savoy House has understated elegance. It features a large curved shade of clear glass, minimal detailing and a matte black finish. It may be mounted as either uplight or downlight. Sconces add a touch of style and light to any wall, including but certainly not limited to hallways, entryways, stairways, great rooms and dining rooms. You will also often see a pair of sconces flanking a bathroom vanity mirror to provide an even, flattering wash of light. Because the bulb is exposed, try using a stylized bulb (not included) such as Edison for a different look! The matte black finish can be paired with black hardware or mixed with hardware in other fixtures. Try the Octave with glam, transitional or contemporary style rooms for a chic look. When you choose a Savoy House lighting fixture, you can be certain you've selected a piece that will withstand the test of time.
