Why We Love Wall Uplights
Wall uplights are one of the best ways to add drama to nearly any space. The shape of an uplight wall sconce forms and focuses light in a very specific direction, allowing light to pour out and up in a fascinating display. There are many different types of shades that create various effects, and the styles range from classic to contemporary. Many of the designs are available with multiple lights if the space requires it, and some are ADA Compliant and keep a low profile.

Place uplight sconces anywhere you wish to make a strong first impression and create a dramatic setting for the evening's activities.
