Nelson

Light and design make a beautiful combination in the Nelson Wall Sconces. Instant icons of mid-century modernism when introduced in 1947, they are constructed of a steel wire frame and covered with translucent plastic, emitting a soft, even light.

Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Wall Sconce:

Love the look and design. Perfect for a smaller space. Provides adequate lighting without taking up table space. Ease of installation without need for electrician. Would be a good choice for other rooms. Another review stated the length of the cord - it is long but provides ample length for hanging options without a wall plug directly underneath. I have seen this sconce in various design magazines in several different settings. Not sure it provides enough lighting for reading, but it does look good on either side of a bed. Room and Board's customer service and return policy were the deciding factor to purchase.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was very prompt. Lamp arrived in appropriate packaging with adequate instructions for hanging.

      Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Wall Sconce:

      Really pleased with quality and look of Nelson sconce. They are a bit bigger than i initially thought, but they fit proportionally quite well in my master bedroom. It was installed by my contractor, and he did not have any issues with installation. Completes the look of the bedroom, and provides nice soft light.

      We bought two of these sconces for our master bedroom to replace a traditional bedside table lamps. These look clean and elegant. The build is of good quality. It takes about 10 minute to install each. These are heavy, so make sure you line up these along wall studs.

        Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Wall Sconce:

        I love the clean lines and the fact that it looks cool on or off. A good light source for our not to well lit living room. They only complaint is the cord is way too long and will require an electrician to shorten. Also, be aware that they are supposed to be hung on a stud. That was a problem for our application so one of them is a little precarious. A little expensive but I like the design enough to keep them

        They came UPS. No problems

          Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Wall Sconce:

          We've been considering the Nelson for some time and finally purchased it. We have a gray wall so the stark white cord was a bit Jarring when I first saw the lamp installed. We also were seeking a warmer light. (The pics make it seem like there's an light amber glow which we liked). After testing different bulbs we were happy with a yelp bug light. (Less yellow than it sounds). We are loving it.

          Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Wall Sconce:

          I really like this being a wall-mounted fixture rather than sitting on the nightstand. The product has just a couple of minor drawbacks: 1.) no installation screws/anchors or instructions are included, 2.) the counter-weight is mounted a little too high on the cord-- would be nice to have the ability to move it lower.

          Emits a nice glow with a 14w fluorescent, but it's nice knowing I can screw in something even brighter.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Ordered late on a Sunday evening and had it installed on Tuesday! (Helps to live within 5 miles of the warehouse :) )

            Room has no ceiling light. This design comes close. It takes a 150 W bulb, which is rare. Anything lower would be inadequate. Its a pity that they discontinued making shades for table lamps (mentioned in the attachments).

            Beautiful lighting fixture! Install was easy enough but I was worried about how fragile the shade was while handling everything. The soft lighting is beautiful but enough to light up a corner of the living room. LOVE the swinging aspect of the fixture. I would have loved to see more of the wooden 'wall mount' cover more of the cord just because it's a great design and would hide more of the bright white cord. I also appreciate the option of the lamp's position by pulling the cord through as much as you'd like. Another great piece by R&B artists. (And yes, it was expensive, but you get what you pay for!) Such an original piece that we've not seen anywhere else.
