I made the sconces based on the Robie House dining room sconces. First I did CAD drawings of the original sconce and built two of them to prove the design (first photo below). Then I built the version I designed as you see in the photos. I made some out of red oak and some out of Honduran mahogany. I have designed and built many different Prairie-Style lighting fixtures and furniture, but the Robie sconce was always my favorite light fixture ever.
