Rustic Sconce Adds Welcoming Nautical Touch to Grand Entryway
The entryway to this shingle-style home in Minnetonka, Minnesota, makes you want to linger at the front door and just take it all in — the warm wood and intricate detailing of the door, the generous windows that curve and wrap around the porch, the inset above with an overhead light offering a welcoming glow. We also love the nod to the Atomic Era with the rustic sconce hung right above the doorbell. With its distinctive cast guard and glass design, this sconce reflects aspects of rustic, vintage, and industrial designs and is suitable for a variety of home styles.
This sconce is very similar to our Barn Light Atomic Cast Guard CGU Sconce, one of our most popular sconces thanks to its versatility and the almost endless ways you can customize this fixture. The sconce is available in both a small and large size, and there are eight different glass options including colored and textured versions. The cast guard itself can be finished in one of more than 40 colors. This is where your light can take on its own personality be it traditional — think black, galvanized, or white — or perhaps something a bit funkier like a Cruiser Green, bright Red, or vivid Yellow. Or give your rustic sconce a classic look with one of our many metallic or aluminum finishes.
Rated for wet locations, this sconce will brighten your entryway, garage wall, or back porch but don’t let that rating stop you from considering this light for interior applications as well. Browse our Photo Gallery and you’ll see customers who have used this light in hallways, bathrooms, or other spaces that need a wall-hugging fixture.
To create a family of lights in your space, be sure to check out the matching Atomic CGU Pendant also available in two sizes and a host of finish options.
