      It's just beautiful, glowing light...no two ways about it. And in a space with lots of walls but a small footprint, it's rally ideal.

      Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Wall Sconce:

      I am a big fan of Nelson design. The lamps are a chic blend of contemporary and mid-century modern. The cigar sconce is easy to install and makes a statement next to my bed. Great ambiance on a dimmer and good light when fully illuminated. They are expensive but materials and quality manufacturing justify the price.

        Take refuge from your Lutron lighting system and bask in the simple comfort of a pull-string lamp. Great for reading, and so freaking mod-- love the look, lit or un-lit.

          Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Wall Sconce:

          I have this light hanging to the side of my sofa. As with any online purchase, you are taking a chance as to how well the piece will fit your concept.
          This light works better than I had imagined. It is lovely and simple, puts out a good amount of light for reading, and all I do is reach up from my perch on the chaise end of my couch and pull the chain to operate.
          It arrived well packed and was simple to install. Even though I bought it on sale, it was a bit of investment. But the piece is timeless; I will not tire of it and be tempted to change the look over time as I sometimes am when I purchase something less expensive that is close, but not quite perfect.
          This light is perfect, and now I want two more for bedside lamps!

            We have a spare bedroom with a fold out couch and limited space on either side. We used this in lieu of a bedside table and lamp to save space. Because the height adjusts, it can easily be used by someone sitting on the sofa or reading in bed. Also, the arm swings out if the way of the folding action or swings in for better light when reading. We bought a Nelson globe for over the dining room table and a large standing cigar shaped light for the living room. The diffused light is great, and it is a lot of look for the price! Very pleased with all three. Also, R & B has their own delivery crews that are exceptional.

                    We purchased two of these for our Master Bedroom, which we centered over the night tables on each side of the head board. Beautiful Classic Design really works well in the room to add some detail. A couple of niggles... the chains on the lamps that hang down are slightly different lenghts, not sure if it is possible to shorten the chain or not. The fixture comes with a compact flourescent bulb, which in my opinion is too high of a color temp ( cool white in color )and a bit too bright for the room. We will probably replace them with warmer color LED replacement bulbs with a slightly lower light output. Beautiful lamp none the less the issues are very minor.

                        How are these lamps installed? It is hard to tell if they are mounted to the wall with cord hanging down to be directly plugged into wall.
                        What material is the shade? A review noted a "sticky" texture.

                          The George Nelson Cigar wall scone is mounted on the wall using the walnut wall-mount. It has a brushed-nickel steel arm that extends out approximately 14-inches. The arm has a swivel hinge and an adjustable 12-foot plug-in cord with a counterweight. The shade is made of a sprayed taut vinyl that coats the sculptural steel wire-frame.

                          A:

                          Never underestimate the power of a soft, slightly damp cloth- but I do know what you mean about the texture of the material feeling a bit tacky. The vendor says a solution of mild dish soap and lukewarm water can be used if gently applied with a soft cloth. Rinse the soap solution with another damp cloth. Avoid using window cleaner and similar products as they can yellow the material.
