Looking around for an economical lighting solution we stumbled across these from a favorite manufacturer of ours, Stonco. We plan to use them as wall sconces at regular intervals in the living spaces mounted with the centerline of the junction box at 6'-0" above the finished floor.

We'll also be using them in selected spaces as uplighting, the bathroom below shows them near the mirror. The lampholder is about $15, the coverplate is $8, all in natural aluminum. Compare with Artemide's Elio...checking in around $800 and we're looking great. Aesthetics aside, I think we'll enjoy the function of these and hardwiring fixtures in the living spaces means we can swap out the fixtures should we tire of them.
