A few years back, homes and apartments were not built with ceiling lights. Many of these homes that did not feature ceiling lights had light switches that connected to an electrical outlet. During this time, floor and table lamps became a very common item in stores because they were needed to light homes. Depending on the type of light needed and décor of the room, some common types are: floor, table, ceiling, hanging, and desk lamps.
It's best if you plan the decor of your living room with the lighting in mind. The most important fixture for creating the right mood is the table lamp. So place table lamps in strategic places like the side tables on either side of your sofa or next to the armchair where you like to sit and read. You can also place table lamps on a sideboard, a wet bar or a chest. Table lamps act like accent lights, lighting up only their surrounding areas. They create interest in the room because there are pockets of light and shadow and the different areas in the room are lit selectively. If your room only had a ceiling light, the entire room would be uniformly and, perhaps, quite brightly lit, creating an uninviting, cold feel.
If you have a TV in the room, make sure there's no glare on the screen from any of the lights. This can be controlled by placing a table or desk lamp next to or behind the TV.
