Renovation Detail: The Desk Sconce

We’ve broken ground. What I am most excited about is that the nook we’re creating for a built-in desk and shelving. I really like to tuck things away, therefore a built-in compact desk nook is the perfect answer for us.

A clutter-free work surface is high on my priority list, so we’re outfitting the nook using wall sconce lighting. Mounting desk light on the wall allows more open desktop space.

Whether two sconces framework the a focused sconce anchors it, wall light in a room feels suitably library-like. One may also consider picking an articulating fixture, which allows for task-light adjustment, a welcome choice in a workspace setting.
