As usual, living rooms tend to need 3 types of lighting ideas (accent, task, also ambient). Whether you are searching for a pretty table lamp for a ’traditional’ living room or ’something’ a bit more ’statement’ to suit your Mid‐century style, we have got loads of ’stylish’ living room ’lighting’ ’ideas’ to get you excited. If you need ’guidance’ on what to select, see our guide to ’how’ to design ’living’ room lighting. If you are working on a whole living room redesign, you will advantage from ’knowing’ our ’guide’ to how to ’design’ a ’living’ room.
1. KEEP IT ’SIMPLE’ WITH ’CONTEMPORARY’ LIGHTING
Simple designs can often be the most striking in a modern living room, so go all out on dramatic shapes and unusual fixtures. Arc floor lights, with their elegant silhouettes and bulbous shades, are a modern classic, plus they are a great stand-in for overhead lights.
2. SOFTEN THE ’EDGES’ WITH ’WARM’ WALL LIGHTS
Creating a warm, even glow around the edges of your room is key, especially if you are working with a north-facing living room. Wall lights will bounce light back into the room, making it feel cozier and giving the room more depth than overhead lights.
They are also a good option if you have a small living room because they won’t take up any precious square footage or clutter surfaces.
3. ’TRADITIONAL’ LIVING ROOM? ’GO’ FOR ’ORNATE’ SCONCES
Wall lights don’t have to just blend into the background if you prefer a traditional style in your living room opt for something more decorative. We love how the intricate design of this oak inspired wall light from Neptune fits perfectly in this simple grey living room.
When considering where to position wall lights, above eye level is usually best as this will avoid any glare.
4. MAKE A ’STATEMENT’ WITH MID‐CENTURY ’MODERN’ DESIGNS
Want to get that Mid-century modern look in your living room? Invest in a standout chandelier or statement pendant light. Anything with oversized round bulbs and a sculptural design will inject that Mad Men vibe into your living room.
