Questions & Answers (8)


“Is this a hardwired sconce, or the type that plugs in an outlet?” asked by Simon

"Both, Simon! It comes with everything you need for either option." Joe from Wayfair


“What kind of bulbs are the JDD Xenons?” asked by Kerry

"Hi Kerry. Xenon bulbs give a bright white light like halogen bulbs without the UV (ultraviolet light), which makes these the ideal bulbs for highlighting sensitive fabric or artwork. Xenon bulbs can be handled with bare hands with no effect on lamp life and are more tolerant when dealing with unstable voltages resulting in longer life. The vertical filament design distributes light evenly. Unlike halogen, xenon bulbs do not create shadows or rings on glass shades. Filled with low-pressure xenon gas." Joe from Wayfair


“Is this light dimmable? Will that shorten the bulb life?” asked by Patrick

"Hi Patrick. Yes, the light is absolutely able to be used with a dimmer, and no, it will not shorten the life of the bulb." Joe from Wayfair


“Hi, does the George Kovacs Reading Room Swing Arm Wall Sconce in Chrome come in a bronze finish?” asked by Yen

"Hi Yen, the George Kovacs Reading Room Swing Arm Wall Sconce in Chrome only comes in this color." Tauny from Wayfair


“Hi, what kind of switch should I use if this wall sconce is hard wired?” asked by Mia

"Hi Mia, if hardwired you would just use a standard light switch." Amanda from Wayfair


“Hi, does the bulb section rotate or move in any way?” asked by Barbara

"Hi Barbara, the bulb section on the George Kovacs swing arm wall sconce does adjust." Travis from Wayfair


“Does the arm go up and down on the sconce?” asked by K

"No just side to side." Tiffany from Wayfair


“Hi, is there an on/off switch on this sconce?” asked by Lekisha

"Hello Lekisha, this sconce contains a cord that has the on/off switch." Justin from Wayfair

good looking reading lamp

from Fayetteville, AR – Verified Buyer

I have these hardwired with a dimmer by my bed and they work great - nice bright light. As noted - the lamp head swivels all around, but the swing arm does not move up and down, so take the time to install at the right height for you.

Classic yet Modern look that amplifies a bedroom...

from Chicago, IL – Verified Buyer

We've Mounted 2 lamps bed side in our Chicago condo. Perfect for what we were looking for and opens up bedside table space while providing ample lighting for bedtime reading. Install was a breeze and we have not experienced any major issues since purchase several months ago. All descriptions are fitting and lamps came with bulbs which is a plus. Only issue I noticed was that a plastic washer in the neck joint broke in one of the lamps resulting in a "squeak" upon movement - not a deal breaker. In all, a great lamp with a great chrome finish that will really set off a bedroom.

verrrry nice! Heavy feel, and the lamp head does not "fall" when adjusted into place. Gives excellent light and the cord cover is a nice extra.

Great bedside reading lights

from New Jersey – Verified Buyer

Great lights - well made. Everything you need is included in the box, including 3 bulbs (2 Xenon, 1 compact florescent.) The only thing that is not obivous is that the chrome cord cover is only 18 inches.
