S.O.S.Not sure of theses sconces.

Like the finish of these sconces and the picture is hard to work with since it is an abstract, can these sconces be used as I'm looking for an eclectic look.

I just don't like them flanking the painting. They might be better off some place else. Leave the artwork to speak for itsself.

I like the sconces but I feel they go better with a colonial look - yet your painting is quite modern. Can you swap them out with something more contemporary and in a similar tone. I understand eclectic but just feel this selection is out of place here.

Thanks for the suggestion. Because the idea of sconces has been driving me mad-I decided to take them down and leave nothing beside picture. As Patirica suggested-leave the picture alone, to speak for itself.

The issue is the two things don't go together. Either move the painting or the lights. I like the lights with the sofa but I'd do artwork that wasn't black/white and was more colorful and "eclectic" in style so that it goes better with the lights. Also the shape of the artwork isn't right for the sofa or the lights. You need something with more height - it's too long and lean and looks too similar to the sofa below. I would get something taller with a little color, even a nice abstract on canvas. In any case, something should move.
