Awesome looking mid-century statement sconce, but it is HEAVY!
This is a really beautiful sconce - it looks killer installed, and is really for ambient light. However, I will say that the weight of this sconce is insane. I think its probably at least 40lbs. So i installed it by myself (I do not recommend; its hard to wire it and hold it close to the wall uninstalled). I was able to secure it's 3 arm/pronged hidden mounting bracket to the junction box very securely, however, the sconce is so heavy, that it actually bent the top arm of the hidden bracket out from the wall a bit, so when you look at it from the side, the top hangs out from the wall maybe a 1/4", but hasn't bent any further. The manufacturer could alleviate this by increasing the gauge of the metal on the hidden bracket, or make it have more arms. My guess is that if this was ceiling mounted, this would be less of an issue, as the weight/pull would be evenly distributed. But it looks really cool. It casts a shadow of it's own arms against the wall... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
