Lillian August Regal X Back Mirrored Sconce

If you feel that you deserve royal treatment in your bathroom, then this is for you: Regal X mirrored sconce, designed by Lillian August. Lighting regal in style and versatile in boot. Comes as a cord and plug fixture with matching metal cord cover allowing you to hang it anywhere you’d like. Easily transforms to hardwire sconce with included hardware.

We found it on Shades of Light. The price is slightly spicy, especially for the symmetry adepts: $465. But, as the designer herself says on her web page: “Every room should tell a story, and accessories really do that. They make your environment more creative and surprising. Accessories bring a room to life!”. On Lillian’s page you will find different products: from seating, beds, tables, cabinets, accessories to lighting, rugs and one of a kind items. Would you fit something designed by Lillian in your apartment? We really fell in love with the Lillian August lighting collection. There’s definitely more articles to come about her!
