Need a suggestion with regards to a wall sconce that shines light upward

Hi there - years ago I saw wall sconces that pointed the light upward and the room was lit with the reflected light from the ceiling. The effect I am looking for is similar to a torchiere lamp. My wife and I have searched through the internet and even ordered a fixture that looked like it would work, but no luck yet.

I would appreciate any suggestions and links to such items.

A big thanks!

Mike

You can mount a light up or down. Can you give us a link or a picture of the light fixture you ordered? What problems did you have with the one you ordered?

The light fixture shines some light upward but most of the light goes forward.

Thanks for some links - I should have added more info. I want to use an incandescent halogen T-3 bulb (150 W). I want to throw a lot of light upward and use a dimmer switch to whoa it down. I am capping my fixture price to $150.

My wife is wanting an oil rubbed bronze look.
