#8- Save Your Marriage Wall Sconce by George Kovacs

Next to money issues, nothing ends relationships like bad task lighting. That’s why the Save Your Marriage Wall Sconce was created—to bring harmony and high quality reading light to that couple on your list.

Save Your Marriage is a little tongue-in-cheek with a lot of functionality. It is a single sconce with two reading lights that are independently controllable and adjustable. Translation: focused light goes right where it’s needed, on the book being read and not in the eyes of anyone else in the bed who is trying to get some sleep.

The included pin-up kit means that it can be easily mounted at a central location above a bed for both inhabitants to share. (Or it can also be hard-wired if you’re pretty confident the marriage is going to last).

Second Marriage Wall Sconce by George Kovacs

Adding to its versatility is its understated transitional design and option of either a Brushed Nickel or Sable Bronze Patina finish. If he likes contemporary and she likes traditional, the Save Your Marriage Wall Sconce is the perfect stylistic middle ground.

If this sconce doesn’t quite get there in time to work its magic, don’t feel too bad. There’s always the Second Marriage Wall Sconce.
