As a rough guide, having a couple of table lamps, four to six recessed downlighters, a picture light to highlight an ornamental object or painting, some sort of concealed lighting inside a bookshelf or other unit, as well as a floor lamp - are considered a good quantity of light fittings which can be used to properly light up your living room. As you can see, you do not need to have all these different types of lighting and lamps all on at the same time. Rather, for effect, you would have a few lights on depending on what sort of mood you wanted to create and what activities were taking place.
Next, what color do you want to get for your lamp? This will depend on the color scheme of your living room. Make sure that the design of the lamp is something that matches with your furniture to ensure that it will not stick out like a sore thumb. The height of the lamp is also very important, so that it will be able to blend in seamlessly at a corner. There are also different kind of light colors, so get one that brings a nice warm hue to your room.
A floor lamp with an up light can also be placed in the corner of the room to highlight a ceiling detail. If you have painting or pictures on the walls, use spotlights to focus on them.
