They are a bit hard to see, but it looks like they are gilded with a thin arm, and three lights. These sconces are all over Blair's apartment. I love the look; they are delicate and beautiful, not too modern, but not too traditional either. I wonder if I am the only one noticing the sconces on Gossip Girl? I am sure that the typical viewer is oblivious to these details.
I have not even really found anything close. These vintage sconces, found on 1st Dibs, have a similar look and feel:
They are attributed to Michael Taylor, circa 1970s. Sold by Antique & Art Exchange on 1st Dibs.
Here is one one that has a different kind of vibe to it, yet I like it. Urban Archaeology's Ruhlmann double arm sconce.
The Normandy sconce, sold through Circa Lighting, also has the feel. Unfortunately, they do not have a gilded finish. They only come in bronze, antique nickel, and antique brass. Is it possible to buy something and have it replated? Or, does gilded gold only work on wood? Anyone know?
But, more importantly, does anyone recognize the Gossip Girl sconces?
I have worked with a custom lighting designer, and we have created a sconce that is inspired by the Gossip Girl Sconce:
