Can you really get *good* light from sconces with shades by vanity?
I had a bad experience finding sconces for my guest bath reno and found that I really didn't get even light that could be used for the mirror from lights that had shades. But, I really prefer that look for all that it brings to a bathroom design?
I put Pottery Barn sconces (Sussex tube sconces) in my daughters' bathroom and they provide great light, but might be a bit modern for our master bath look?
*So, I see them all the time all over Houzz - can you get GOOD vanity lighting from sconces with shades? Any tips or suggestions of specific brands?*
I've attached the photo of the master vanity - there are individual mirrors above each sink - they are Uttermost 27" x 42" tall with room for sconces on each side of them.
(The vanity will have at least three sconces, once between each mirror. Possibly four - a single, then double, then single depending on the fixture. As for other light, there is a hanging chandelier in the room back by the tub, but I didn't want recessed overhead b/c it provides such shadows on your face.)
I also put a photo below of the ones I like with shades - Suzanne Kasler for Visual Comfort - Margarite Single Sconce - the paper shade on it in the photo is awful (and doesn't come with it,) but I just want to be sure there is good light in our bathroom!
The other one I like is the Visual Comfort Openwork long tube but I'm afraid it might be too modern with the rest of the room?
