Ornella Celeste. Lights. January 10th, 2018.
If your living room is also where your children occasionally do their homework, then supplement the lamps with a ceiling fixture. If the kids do their assignments on the coffee table then a fixture directly above the table is a good idea as the light will also be in the center of your seating area and won't look out of place. But don't forget to use dimmers, particularly on the ceiling lights, as you can control the brightness of the light and thus control the ambiance in the room.
Paper lanterns. They are inexpensive and unobtrusive. They cast a soft, even and omnidirectional light that is not only pleasing, but also very effective. You should hang the lights individually or in groups from the ceiling. The good side with the lights is that they provide a mobile-like effect regardless of whether the bulbs are on or not.
Create layers of light. You need to create light layers that bounce illumination throughout the room in order to eliminate any shadows that might be in the corners. You should use a chandelier to provide overall light and visual interest.
Similar to the sconce, but possessing a personality all its own, is the wall lamp. This wall fixture distinguishes itself by generally having the ability to swivel and swing on a jointed arm. The wall lamp thus juts out farther from the wall than a standard sconce. The swinging arm makes the wall lamp perfect for living rooms and bedrooms, or anywhere one does a lot of reading. The adjustable nature of these fixtures puts you in control of the lighting more so than most any other light fixture you can buy.
