The Nelson Pear Wall Sconce features a 2-inch-thick, solid walnut wall-mount, a steel arm that extends out, and a 12-foot plug-in cord.
A swivel hinge in the arm allows for easy height adjustments.
The Nelson Bubble Lamps were originally designed in 1952 when George Nelson was inspired by a set of Swedish hanging lamps that were tediously crafted with a silk covering.
The bigger challenge, however, was their expensive price. Nelson decided to make his own set, and arrived at an innovative process that replaced the silk shade with a translucent plastic material.
