The Banana Bowl Sconce is inspired by the functional art of the banana leaf bowl; a long used tool created by pinning the leaf of a banana plant into a bowl shape. The pinned leaf design of the sconce is open at the top and bottom creating directed light while ambient lighting diffuses through the shade.
Eangee recommends light bulbs based on heat, not by light output.
We recommend using either compact florescent light (CFL) bulbs or LED bulbs. These will provide the same amount of light but use less wattage and produce less heat as compared to a standard incandescent bulb. The lower heat will help ensure the longivity of the lamp .
If you use an incandescent bulb, we suggest a maximum of 40 watts.
Features fossilized cocoa leaves that are handplaced on a standard UL lamp backing and then laminated. The panel is handstitched onto a powder coated, wrought iron frame to form an arched bowl shape. The lamp is accented with a single, abaca-wrapped metal stem in the center and a bamboo rod through the top and bottom. Each sconce includes approximately five feet of cord with plug and the hardware needed to hardwire if desired.
