Swing arm wall lights have versatile arms that you can swing or swivel to a specific direction for brighter localised illumination.
It is a type of armed wall light, the most popular type of wall light sold in the market, and is also considered an adjustable wall light. Most often used as task lights, swing arm wall lights may or may not have shades that can reduce the glare coming from their light bulbs. They’re available in many different styles, from traditional to contemporary and everything in between.

Traditional: Traditional ones may look quite formal compared to modern swing arm wall lights. They tend to be more ornate and detailed, integrating more design elements. They work well in vintage-inspired spaces or formal solemn occasions. A noteworthy example of this style is the Traditional Swing Arm with Cream Pleated Shade Wall Light.
Accordion: Many aren’t familiar with the term, but some accordion-style wall lights can also be considered swing arms. Named after the musical instrument, accordion-style wall lights are iconic for having an extendable zigzag arm structure. If you’re curious about how they generally look, our Sutton Scissor Wall Lamp and Rosendal Wall Scissors Lamp are good examples of this wall light.
Country / Cottage: Famously known as the “shabby chic” style, country-styled wall lights are often influenced by the cottage-inspired designs - muted colours that depict well-worn ages, homey feel, and simple, honest aesthetics. They are often patronised in rural communities and have slowly extended their fame to urban homes in the previous years. Naturally, country or cottage-style swing arm wall lights are also popular choices for a wall fixture in interior spaces decorated under their limelight. If you’re looking for a swing arm wall light under this style, take a look at our Detroit Swing Arm Silver White Wall Lamp.
Above the bedside table / beside the bed's headboard: Swing arm wall lights are fashionable and functional additions to bedside spaces. It can act as a table lamp alternative, allowing you to free up the counter space on your bedside table. Furthermore, it can be used as a personal light that you can turn on at night when the main lighting is off and your spouse or roommate is already asleep.
Next to a reading chair or writing desk: Use a swing arm wall light as a task light, providing enough brightness on the space as you read a book in your nook or work on your office table. Just make sure to adjust the arms so that you won't be much affected by the glare from the wall light's globe.
Behind a sofa: You can use swing arm wall lights behind a couch for numerous reasons. If you intend to utilise the wall fixture as an accent light to convert the sofa as a focal point, try extending the arms and pointing the shade heads above the couch to make its features more visible. Be mindful of your swing arm wall lights' placements; don't fix it on positions that obstruct people's movements in the area. And as always, consider strategic places that won't introduce excessive glare when the swing arm wall lights are turned on.
Over a bookcase, shelf, or artwork: Swing arm wall lights placed near racks and art pieces are often used as spotlights to highlight the important items, beautiful decors, or architectural elements near the area. On the other hand, having a wall light with an extended arm over a bookshelf allows you to shine light over the book titles, making it easier to see which books will you need for your next reading activity.
Above the kitchen counter: Just like how a swing arm wall light can be used as a task light to help you see what you read or write clearly, swing arm wall lights on kitchen counters can be used as additional localised lighting when cooking or chopping produce. If you have a plain kitchen, a decorative swing arm wall light can also double as the "spicy ingredient" that can elevate the "taste" of your kitchen's style.
