I went back and forth between the antique black and natural brass finishes, but ultimately decided to go with the brass because of the brightness I knew it would add to the room. I’m so happy with my choice! The brass has already started to get a little bit of patina, and they’re just going to get nicer and nicer with age.
I’ve used a lot of light fixtures from Schoolhouse over the years (beginning with the Truman sconces in my former Newburgh bathroom), and every time I open a package from them, I know it’s going to be an exhilarating feeling. I always gasp, because their fixtures always looks better in person than they do online. Their craftsmanship is top-notch, without fail.
And yes, in case you’re wondering, the Eduard sconces also come in a hardwired version! That’s not an option for me because I’m in a rental, but I’d run wires for these babies in a heartbeat if I was a homeowner. The cord is nice, though—it’s heavyweight and fabric-covered.
I put 20W bulbs in both fixtures, and the amount of light they emit is perfect. The reflection of the light off the brass produces a really beautiful, warm glow. I tried to get a decent photo of them in use, but since I suck at taking pictures in low light, you’ll just have to use your imagination.
My Eduard sconces were kindly supplied by Schoolhouse Electric, for which I am extremely grateful. They didn’t ask me to write this post, but I’d do pretty much anything for them because they rule and I love them.
