Plug in wall sconce - Roy - Brass Sconce - Bedside light - Mid century modern - bare bulb - dimmable lamp


  • Details
    This brass wall-lamp, called the Roy, was one of the first “soft-wire” sconces that I designed. I had started building and selling a handful of “hard-wire” fixtures, and I realized that I was a little jealous of my clients - I made these fixtures all day but I couldn’t use them in my own home (a tiny rental in NYC). I whipped together a plug-in sconce one afternoon and hung it up next to my bed. I absolutely loved the custom look, as well as the extra space it cleared up on my nightstand. Also, I added a dimmer to mine, which was primo for setting the mood ;)

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Care instructions

    As with life, be gentle. Don't use any harsh chemicals. If left untouched, brass will darken and develop a patina with age. If you feel the need to brighten your brass to it's original hue, you can use a gentle metal polish. I recommend a product called Brasso, which can be found at your local hardware store.

    I have placed an order, when will it ship?

    I work hard to keep the lead-times listed on Etsy as up to date as possible. You can find these at the top of the "shipping and policies" tab. Unless you are otherwise notified, your order will ship within the listed timeline.

    If you are in need of a rush order, please send me a message before placing your order :)

    Can I customize this fixture?

    YES! Absolutely. Common customizations include changing the cord color, the switch mechanism, or dimensions. Please shoot me a message with any customization requests prior to placing your order.

    Talk to me about your brass

    Well, okay! My fixtures are made form solid brass brass that is not lacquered. The brass is polished by hand, and then covered in a thin layer of artisanal microcrystalline wax (Theres a $10 word for ya). This leaves the fixture with a deep, matte luster.

    I am a blogger, can you send me a free product in exchange for promotion?

    Thank you so much for showing me some love! Please blog about my studio - it makes me feel so good!! Buuuut, unfortunately I cannot offer free product in exchange.
