"These vintage, newly rewired floral metal wall sconces were totally plain Janes until your favorite dynamic duo at Madcap Cottage had their way with them. And, presto, change-o, these former shrinking violets are now tempestuous tulips and reckless roses ready to weave a spell of intoxicating fury. Must be hardwired. Each sconce takes two candelabra size bulbs.
John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind Madcap Cottage, their Brooklyn-based interior design firm. Known for their imaginative use of color and pattern, the Madcap gents scour the world for eclectic finds that capture their unique and gimlet-eyed view of the world. Imagine a British country house that pairs Grannys antiques and a spirited dash of chinoiserie chic with a side of Moroccan marvelous and Indian lan. You only live once, say the pair, channeling Mae West, but if you do it right, once is enough.
