Is it ok to see into the shade on stair sconces?

22 days ago

Hello. I want to replace the sconces in my stairway and hall. I was looking at the Cawdor Stanchion Wall Light by Visual Comfort. I think it would look lovely, however I am concerned that you will be able to see the bulb under the shade going up and over the shade coming down. Is this normal or acceptable? If not, what is a better alternative? I like a traditional appearance, and gravitate towards sconces with shades, but other suggestions are welcome.
Thank you!
