A well-lit living room requires a combination of accent ambient and task lighting. In this living room, recessed fixtures throw general lighting, wall-mounted lights showcase art and an adjustable floor lamp provides light for reading.
Light layers must be placed to bounce illumination throughout a space and eliminate shadows. In this living room, a burnished metal chandelier provides total light and visual interest. Twin sconces explain the area around the fireplace and provide gentle accent lighting and mirror. A scrolling floor lamp offers task lighting for the seating area.
