Rated 5 out of 5 by handygirl Foyer Feature
Our foyer has a low ceiling which makes a pendent/chandelier lighting impossible. I installed a pair of these sconces for a bright & sophisticated entrance. It was easy to replace existing sconces with cartagena sconces. Fine detail and quality of materials; the finish works with gold or silver. When installing remove the exterior collar before inserting the interior rod for a clean fit. Highly recommend.

Looks great but I am not sure how the bottom piece screws together all the way? It's own outter collar seems to prevent it from screwing down all the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happykathy3 Very Nice Sconce!
I love this sconce. It is substantial, but it is important to know that it also lays close to the wall, so it doesn't get in the way. Just a stunning piece! This sconce adds just the right amount of filtered light. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WSML Best purchase in a long time......
I am so happy I got the Cartagena Wall sconces, I bought two. My electrician thought they were $400 each. It cost me more to have them installed than it did to buy them. WELL WORTH IT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DLDI Pretty sconce
i think I will like them.....I am going to paint them since there is a silvery finish with the black. I don't like the silver showing....want solid black.

Can't say enough about this sconce. We purchased four of these to put at the entry and living room and they are the perfect understated statement piece. They really gave our new home the character it needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by founderskeeper Great for large walls
I needed large/tall sconces for my two-story walls, and these sconces are nicely proportioned for that application. They would also work for lower ceilings, but I do love that they are larger than average sconces. The finish is nice and they feel sturdy. I'm pleased with the quality of the shade and metal. I also purchased the large carriage chandelier for a neighboring room and they coordinate well together. I couldn't believe the price for a sconce this size--you can't go wrong with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wags What a great buy!
I finally found the perfect sconces for our basement lounge at a great price. They are just what I was looking for and would be the finishing touch for a dining room or a family room as well. They came in just a few days! I have no doubt that when friends come over for a gathering that they will want them too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Irish35Lass Scounce provides good lighting in eating area.
The design of this product was the perfect solution for my setting. I needed 2 scounces to balance the wall decor and emit enough light for my eating area at night. The roof skylight over my table made it impossible to have chandelier lighting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SeattleStyle Beautiful Sconce, but...
I absolutely love the look of this sconce (it's just like the picture#, but because of the way the one I received was designed, it would not screw together tightly. This left it loose and wobbly, and totally unuseable. I am exchanging for another in hopes that I get one that will work because it really is lovely and unique #and priced right!). I will keep you posted!

I bought two of these sconces to put on either side of a large painting. They arrived in perfect condition and look beautiful once hung. I really like the soft glow of the lights on the wall at night. The finish of the wrought iron matches my chandelier perfectly.

This wall sconce comes exactly as pictured. Sturdy and solid. My husband had no problems installing, but if you are not familiar with electrical wiring, you should probably hire an electrician to install.

Installed two in our Entry. Nice quality and easy to assemble. Have had several positive comments on how great they look on our new Grass Cloth wall covering. Thanks Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by leslielou just stunning!
I ordered and received two of these for each side of the large window in my dining room a few months ago. I just had them installed with new wiring and they are beautiful! They fill a narrow space perfectly and the light deflected from the top and bottom of the shades gives the perfect glow for evening dining. Couldn't be more pleased - great product and great price!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by joejean7 Good style, good purchase.
The wall sconce has yet to be hung. Nevertheless, I was pleased when opening the shipment. It was packaged well and there were no missing parts - important in that it will not be used for several more months and until a new home is built. I couldn't resist buying it on sale. The style is what we were looking for and I feel sure it will fit in with our décor. It didn't disappoint -- a happy buy!
Only four stars because it is not in use. Feel sure when hung it will receive that last star.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lalalola Good value, great size
I ordered two of these for my staircase landing and discovered that both were cracked upon install. Ballard Designs took care of this right away and shipped out two brand new ones that arrived intact. For the price these are great and really do look like metal instead of resin. They provide the perfect amount of light for my landing are substantial enough in size to provide substance to a larger wall. For the price, you really cant go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DesignProWannabe Adds needed detail to our dining room
The cabinet in our dining room is recessed between 28" wide wall spaces on either side. These sconces are the perfect addition to those wall spaces in scale and style. They are large for a sconce, so they are able to make a bold statement all on their own. The black hand rubbed rustic finish allows just a bit of silver to peak through. I also love the light shadow that is made on the wall, similar to an "X" or hour glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WorkingThisHome They are just about perfect
We are using them to flank 10 feet of window-space. They add great interest, and because of their length, they draw the eyes upward toward cathedral ceiling. Think I'll add a bit of color to the shades for the Wow factor, but otherwise, wonderful.

The pictures don't do these sconces justice--they are quite the statement piece! Sconces are approximately 3 ft. tall and make for a beautiful entry way over my oversized buffet. Great bronze color that pairs perfectly with dark wood.

I replaced 2 out of style wall sconces with the Cartagena and am thrilled. After researching and considering other more expensive fixtures, I am so happy with this choice. They immediately updated my living room! And, it took my electrician mere minutes to install both!
