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.
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.
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.
