The Cobra Wall Sconce might just be the coolest under-the-radar sconce ever. Why? Well, look at the subtle curve of the shade, for starters, and its classic oval shape. Did you know the Swedish architect and designer Greta Grossman designed it way back in 1950? It still looks thoroughly modern, in the quiet way of most mid-century Swedish modernism. The shade may be tilted 90 degrees and rotated a full 360 degrees, allowing you to concentrate light right where you wish.
The base cover and the shade is powder-coated steel.
Available in two colors: jet black and matte white.
Switch integrated at the base.
Designer: Greta Magnusson Grossman
Available from YLighting, $399.00.
