The 6230 Varial sconce from Belfer is one of Van Dam's favorite light fixtures. Made from cast aluminum, the Varial has a clear tempered-Pyrex diffuser and an adjustable housing that pivots 34 degrees to light vaulted ceilings. It operates on a 100-watt or 150-watt halogen bulb and can be speced in powder-coat black or white or in copper, raw aluminum, or custom finishes. Belfer, 800.726.5759; www.belfergroup.com.
