What's Mission style lighting and should I have it on my walls?

Wall Lighting With a Mission

Finding Wall Lamps: Mission style wall lamps and wall lighting wasn't approved by NASA nor is it the lighting preferred by religious missionaries. It's simply the same as the Arts and Crafts movement popularized in the early 20th century by Frank Lloyd Wright, who first called in Prairie School architecture.

Now, Mission style lighting is everywhere, in indoor and outdoor wall sconces and garden or path lanterns. The classic perpendicular intersecting lines and geometric forms are quintessential American style perfect for contemporary homes. When finding wall lamps, don't think that Mission means square (even though Mission sconce lighting sometimes is blocky). Mission-style wall lighting includes contemporary iron wall sconce lighting and wall lamps such as the Mission-Style Tiffany Glass Plug-In Swing-Arm Wall Lamp. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to decorate your home according to a classic American home decor movement.
