Why We Love Bubble Wall Lights
They’re fun; they’re fresh, they’re playful and whimsical. They’re bubble wall lights. Bubble wall lights add a light, bright touch to any space they’re in, and although they may not seem like the most versatile light fixture, they are actually quite adaptable. Use them as an accent or ambient lighting and they’ll make a shining statement with their unique profiles. Whether you’re interested in a rustic shape with an accordion shade or a sleek glass piece with a smooth globe, you’ll be able to find the perfect bubble sconce for your home.
Decor that Works Best with Bubble Wall Lights
Bubble wall sconces give an almost ethereal effect, with their fanciful composition, that pairs well with a range of different styles. Those with simple shapes and cool colors complement modern decor. Look for uncomplicated compositions, cool designs, and glass shades to accentuate the modern home. Bubble wall sconces are also the perfect addition to a home with nautical decor. A glass globe keeps things from looking too heavy and the round shape and rustic metals will maintain the seafaring feel. And for those that embrace both past and present, our mid-century modern options bring unique textures, symmetrical designs, and classic shape to the table.
Favorite Types of Bubble Sconces
Nelson bubble lamps are iconic mid-century modern pieces that embrace all the classic elements of a globe wall light. We love the way these fixtures combine a clean look with a uniquely textured shade to form a light so beautifully, it’s got a permanent home in the MoMA. However, not all sconces rely on a round shape to achieve the bubble feel. Some designers opted to create the airy, whimsical feel with clear dimpled glass that houses tiny delicate bubbles. Much more subtle, but certainly not less stunning, these dynamic fixtures abandon the traditional shape for some contemporary takes on these lights.
How to Choose the Perfect Bubble Wall Sconce
Bubble wall lights can find a place in any room, in any home. Choosing the perfect light really comes down to how and where you’ll be using it. If you’re using your light to add an air of whimsy to your bathroom, you’ll want to opt for a smaller piece that’s wet-rated. Contrarily, for accent lighting in your living room, look for a big, bright fixture with glass shades as to not reflect the light. Bubble wall sconces with stylish accents and shades that diffuse the light is ideal for atmosphere lighting in spaces like living rooms and foyers where they bring both style and function to the table.
Bubble sconces are gorgeous and stunning, but they can often be overshadowed by larger pieces throughout your home. Avoid this and opt for a bubble chandelier. These stunning, statement lights will never be overlooked, and they’ll amplify the style of everything else in the room. For something that packs the same stylistic punch without the dominating presence, bubble pendant lights are a perfect choice. Use them alone or hang them in tandem, however you install them they’ll shine with the same ethereal presence of all other globe lighting in a more regal format.
