10 Easy Pieces: Retro Bath Sconces

Janet Hall October 29, 2008

One of the most daunting tasks in a bathroom remodel is choosing the lighting; it's dismaying how few good choices exist. We've covered modern fixtures in the past (10 Easy Pieces: Mod Bath Sconces); now we turn our attention to retro/industrial choices.

Below: The Sage Sconce is available in black or white porcelain and a variety of finishes; $119 at the redoubtable Electric Schoolhouse, based in Portland, Oregon.

Below: The Barn Light Sconce; $119 at Barn Light Electric, an admirable outfit that sells US-made, commercial-grade lighting.

Below: Hector Switch Wall Light, from UK company Original BTC, in porcelain and ceramic; $175 at Conran.
