Suggestions for Living Room Sconce Lighting?

Good Questions

Q: Hi I was hoping that the Apartment Therapy community could help me — I'm slowly decorating my living room but now I'm a little out of ideas. I'd like to select a pair of wall lamps or sconces that work well with the wallpaper pattern. Any suggestions? Many thanks!

Editor: Because the wallpaper pattern and the majority of the furniture is on the squared boxy or very angular, I think a sconce with a rounder shape would contrast well in the space. Who has suggestions for Alexandra?

Also, it appears that the wiring is not centered on the fireplace — a wall mounted lamp with a large or very horizontal base could be used to help visually center the lamps.
