Totem Sconce Trapezoid


Totems and totem poles are storytelling tools spiritual in nature that describe the characteristics and history of a person or tribe. While reflecting on our American history, Boyd's head in-house designer, Doyle Crosby was inspired by the era of travel, leisure and innovation, and the ideas of revival, growth and wisdom. With a spirit of its own, the Totem Series was beautifully designed and detailed. Using rich metal and improvements in lighting technology, Crosby re-imagines designs from the 1950s and hearkens back to early American modernism.

The ADA appropriate sconce features a singular trapezoid cast form on a thin arm extending out at a right angle from a half-dome backplate. When the Totem Sconce Trapezoid is purchased as a pair, one original and one mirrored version are provided. In the center of the cast form is a round acrylic orb which conceals an LED lamp. Measuring 16" tall and 9" wide, it can be mounted with the stem pointing up or down. Illumination is provided by 3000˚K, 90+ CRI energy efficient LEDs. The fixture is available in Cloud or Coal. The inside of the cast form is available in Cloud (only available when the fixture is finished in Cloud), 12k White Gold Leaf, or 22k Yellow Gold Leaf. The inset of the backplate is also available gold leafed.
