We purchased 4 drink sconces a couple of weeks ago and have only had them installed for about a week, but we already love them. The sconces have already drawn compliments from guests, too.
Two of them we mounted spaced out on a 20' wall in our kids' room - despite their small size, the 60w halogen bulb in each provides a good amount of light. We did mount another two on a junction box 9" (center) from the ceiling. The plan was to have those be down-lighting. However, we've found that the fixtures really look much better (our opinion) as up-lighting, so we've pointed them into the ceiling. When they are turned off, they look beautiful. When they're turned on, they're definitely too close to the ceiling, but not so much that it's a significant problem.

As some buyers have already mentioned, it is smaller than you would imagine from the pictures. But it has beautiful shape and super clean look. It gives a lot of light. Love it.

i think this is a beautiful design, however, it only works with a back plate which i think detracts from the overall look. the pictures of the sconce are not shown with the plate. i bought white sconces and the chrome backing does not really go with the rest of the room. also, they are surprisingly small, and, definitely look much better as up-lights.

Once again, the Italians know how design a beautiful product. We have two of these drink sconces in our kitchen/eating area. They are cool, unusual, make me think of happy times with a glass of wine, and the construction is solid. They were a little more than I was planning on spending - but I am happy I went for it.
