WALL LAMP LIGHTING: HARDWIRED & PLUG IN LAMPS

Whether you’re adding lighting fixtures above an office desk, over a bed, or simply along the walls of your home, wall lamps are a great solution! Our curated selection includes swing arm lamps, which are excellent adjustable task lights for reading and hobby workspaces. Art and picture light fixtures provide illumination to paintings, photos, and other wall decor. Stylish designer wall sconce and buffet lamp shades make a chic addition that can help you incorporate layers of color and texture into your distinguished lighting style.


WALL SCONCES VS. LAMPS

The term “wall lamp” typically applies to an indoor wall light with an arm that extends away from the wall and a shade that diffuses the light from the bulb. In contrast, wall sconces typically consist of a bulb and backplate with a decorative covering over the bulb that is not a full shade. The arm on a wall lamp may be short, making it appear similar to a sconce, or it may be a longer swing-arm style that sits some distance from the wall. The shade on a wall lamp is similar to a typical lamp shade in appearance and can give a space like a home office a more studious air.

Unlike some other categories of lights, the differences between types of wall lights is subtle. The category encompasses not only lamps, but outdoor and indoor wall sconces and vanity light styles such as bath bars. We recommend exploring all of our wall lights as you browse to make sure you find the style that best fits your needs!


HARDWIRED WALL LAMPS VS. PLUG IN DESIGNS

Once you have found a fixture you love, it’s time to think about installation. Mounting a wall lamp can be as simple as affixing a plug-in fixture to your wall via a wall bracket near an outlet, or can be a bit more complicated if you want to hardwire a fixture directly to the electrical source. We recommend consulting a licensed electrician before you mount any fixture to ensure a safe and smooth installation.
