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.
Living room is also often used to put some arts or your family photo at its wall. These decorative things are good to dramatize the room atmosphere. Painting or family picture can be lightened by spotlight every frames. Spotlight can be applied for sculpture or another interesting art. If the art object is high enough, directing the light upper so it looks dramatic. With fit and flexible lighting in your living room, your family will fall more enjoyable.
For the living room, choose a lamp shade made of fabric or slightly opaque paper to provide warm glow in the room. If to be placed near a television, an opaque shade can be chosen to reduce glare. For a modern look, drum shades may be used and if traditional look is preferred, conical shades are recommended. For reading purposes, the lamp's bulb must be at least 60 Watts; a dimmer or three0way bulb can be used for modulating the brightness.
