Kovacs GK P470 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Sconces They are nice sconces . The shades, however, are much yellower than they appear in the photo. I ended up buying white replacement shades for 1/2 the price of the fixtures, but for me it was worth it as they looked much better with my other room lighting and wall color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, inexpensive wall lights After a lot of online searching, we bought two of these Kovacs lights for our front entry. Installation was simple. They look sophisticated with clean lines and simple design. I like the fact that the fixtures are low profile too. That way they don't stick out too far from the wall. Plus, you can't beat the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sconces! While these sconces don't emit a lot of light, they are beautiful! I would definitely buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Brushed Nickel Sconces These are perfect for the sitting area/sanctuary off our bedroom. Simple 60 watt bulb provides soft light: using a dimmer switch allows maximum flexibility in lighting control. The scones were delivered in a very fast 5 days! Definitely recommend Lighting Direct and these sconces in particular.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style We installed 4 of these on pillars in a theater room and they were perfect size and very easy to install. They are probably smaller than some people would imagine so measure first. The shade is perfect for the lamp and the light wash up and down is practical.
