Good Question: Lighting for No-Outlet Living Room?

Hi, I just moved into my new studio space and while I love the industrial feel, I don't love the overhead lighting. The other problem is that the place is pretty big and my living room area is right in the middle of a big cement floor with no outlets in it and no walls close by. If I want to use lamps I'm going to have to run long unsightly cords. So my question is, are the lighting solutions that I'm not aware of? Battery operated blocks that glow? Solar powered jars? Candles seem like a very high maintenance solution to a daily problem! I'm at a loss... Thanks, Margaret
