We recently noticed these new additions to CB2's line of lighting and wanted to share.
Glam Sconce comes in either "Lobster Red" (whoever writes copy for CB2's website deserves a raise) and "Polished Chrome"; we think these are a great, inexpensive way to get light up on forgotten walls. The chrome version in particular could work well in both slick, throwback interiors, or when paired with something more industrial, as pictured after the jump...
We think they would look even better slightly elongated, but at $30 each it's hard to argue.
CB2 recommends "professional hardwiring" but these could easily be adapted for plugs at any lamp supplier on the Bowery; it could even be done at home using simple lamp cord (not as scary as it sounds). Hardwired sconces can be intimidating, especially for a renter, but having them modified is actually incredibly easy and inexpensive.
