Top 10 Luxury Living Room Lighting Ideas
Your living room is where first impressions are made and should be a space that reflects your personal style and makes you feel comfortable - whether you're entertaining guests or relaxing with family. Good lighting is essential to any living room design. It can set the mood, create an illusion of space, and highlight architectural features - from the fireplace to the artwork on the walls. Whether you're aiming for a contemporary look or a more classic, traditional feel, our luxury living room lighting ideas will give you the inspiration you need to transform your space.
From statement chandeliers to floor lamps and everything in between, these luxury living room lighting ideas will help you create the living room of your dreams.
1. Make a statement with a Chandelier
Chandeliers are a classic choice for living room lighting, adding sophistication and elegance to any space. If you're looking for a statement piece, the Prospect Park Chandelier is a traditional design with updated modern elements. For a more understated style, the Brigitte Chandelier is a beautiful option with clean lines and a simple design – ideal for living rooms with a minimal aesthetic.
2. Create an illusion of space with Floor Lamps
The perfect floor lamp will not only brighten up your living room but also create the illusion of space. If you're working with a small living room, look for a floor lamp with a slim silhouette and clean lines such as the Birdy Swing Floor Lamp. The soft gentle contours and minimalist functional design, characteristic of the Nordic style, makes it ideal for living rooms with limited space.
The Bonton Floor Lamp sits well in a more eclectic style of living room, featuring simple shapes and different materials designed to represent pieces of jewellery. The natural brass curl, the sinuous oak wood detail, and the numerous pastel shades have made Bonton an iconic object.
3. Add statement lighting with Wall Sconces
Highlight architectural features, artworks, or even fireplaces with a statement wall sconce. Choose an eclectic design or an eye-catching finish such as the Spate Wall Light with its nod to Art Deco styling, soft opal acid-etched stepped glass shade, satin brass metalwork and jewel-like marble spheres. Or perhaps the striking yet refined silhouette of the Delie Large Wall Light where the minimalist tubular fixture and shade is accented with a delicate marble sphere.
4. Light up Your Living Room with Wall Lights
Depending on the layout of your living room, wall lights can be a great option for adding both ambient and accent lighting to your space. We love the Dalt Wall Light with its harmonious combination of spherical shapes and contrasting materials, it is the perfect blend of form and function. For something more understated, choose a wall light with a simple silhouette such as the Orb Mirror Wall Light where the soft diffused light will complement any space.
5. Create Ambience with Table Lamps
Table lamps not only add a soft and inviting glow to your space but are also great for task lighting - ideal for reading, working, or entertaining. For an eye-catching yet delicate table lamp, the intricate design and subtle colours of the Bloom Table Lamp is reminiscent of old perfume bottles and the shape of oriental diffusers.
6. Layer Your Lighting
One of the best ways to create a warm and inviting living room is to layer your lighting. From floor lamps and table lamps to brass wall lights and interior wall lights you can create a space that feels cozy and inviting. By layering your lighting, you can also create different zones within the living area.
7. If One Light Just Isn't Enough
Create a composition of multiple lights in differing sizes or colours for additional light and a statement feature. The Arten Wall Light features a disc-like minimal design and when used in multiples, can form a distinctive composition to suit your space. The Altun Wall Light feature a dimmable LED light with a smooth, refined and rounded design in a range of subtle complimentary tones. Beautiful as an individual light but spectacular when grouped in an arrangement.
8. A Pop of Colour
Add personality to your living room by using a pop of colour. From the bold metal finishes of the Revolve Table Lamp with its sleek minimalist design to the Narciso Floor Lamp where the bell-like shade is available in a brass, pink or blue finish to contrast and complement your living room décor.
9. Use Outdoor Lights Indoors
Add extra personality to your space by selecting an outdoor light with an interesting design or unique finish, and then bring it inside to use as accent lighting. The refined teak wood structure of the Agua Wall Light brings an element of nature to a room. The Abachina Floor Lamp incorporates little spheres of blown glass secured to a metal frame, reminiscent of beads sliding along an abacus and is available as both an indoor and outdoor fixture – making it the ultimate transitional piece.
10. Complete the look with Ceiling Lights
Illuminate your room with decorative ceiling lights to complete your living room design. The concentric circles of the R.O.M.A. Ceiling Light have a textural organic matte finish which create a feature without overpowering the room. The Spider Ceiling Light has a spherical design that resembles an eyeball - a functional yet versatile design which can be both rotated and tilted to the side, allowing you to create different zones within the living area.
By mixing and matching different fixtures, you can create a living room that is stylish, functional, and unique. Don't be afraid to experiment - your perfect living room is waiting.
