The Patrick Articulating Sconce could fit into many places. It would work equally well next to a bed, over a desk, or by a reading chair. And its simplicity means it would look great in a modern, traditional, or just plain old eclectic apartment.
In really small spaces, with its articulating arm and swiveling head, it could even serve two functions. Push it this way and it's great for bedside reading, push it that way and it helps illuminate your home office. Yes, we've lived in apartments that small.
Pottery Barn sells it for $149.
