I purchased four of the Forte Lighting 2424-02 2 Light Indoor Bracket Wall Sconce in antique bronze w\umber linen. They are very nice looking and do a fine job of lighting my 18x12 living room. I put them on a dimmer switch which helps with mood lighting. The frame is sturdy and the glass feels solid. I am using (2)60-watt bulbs per fixture and throws off plenty of light. I would have rated the light itself higher, but the overall experience downgraded my review. After waiting a week for my order, I was told it was on back order (website said they were in stock). Also the instructions were horrible. I'm handy with wiring and light carpentry work, so I had a good guess as to what the instructions were suppose to be. Three of the four lights had blurry instructions (bad photocopy job!). The directions are generic for many different Forte lights, so you had to find the directions for this light. My biggest complaint was the way the scissor bracket lined up with the sconce and the octagonal outlet box(their recommendation, in hindsight I would have been better using a 1-gang rectangular box). I had to cut the mounting bolts so it would stick out just enough to hold the fixture snuggly to the wall. Once one was done, the others followed pretty quickly. I would definitely recommend this sconce to others.
This light has a high light output and the vertical style works well for mounting on both sides of a vanity mirror. The quality is good even when viewed up close. We purchased 4 for our contemporary styled bath.
I have installed two of these fixtures on an 18-foot long wall of a bedroom/office and they light up the room perfectly. The linen-patterned white glass diffusers are beautiful. I would definitely recommend this wall sconce.
This is a very attractive fixture, but the shades are much different (darker) than the image suggests. It also arrived a bit damaged (top and bottom are not aligned properly - though my husband thinks it can fix that).

Nice contemporary look

These were a great value for a newly remodeled powder room, nicely framing the mirror. Used 4 cfl bulbs equivalent to 60 watts each (can take up to 100 each), and have more than enough light for this small space. Much better looking than anything at the big box stores, and way cheaper than a lighting store.
Perfect fixtures to update from traditional to contemporary!! We purchased two of them, choosing the brushed nickel finish. We have set them up with dimmer switches which give a more appealing and interesting lighting effect for dining. Really love them!

These 2 light sconces are just what our loft needed!!
We have a trio of ceiling to floor windows with a 16' foot support beam flanking both sides of the middle window. We installed 1 sconce on each support beam. Now we the perfect amount of light casting up to the ceiling and down to the floor.
