NY Good Questions: Lighting Suggestions for the Living Room?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

I have a lamp crisis!

I can't find any lamps that look good with my sectional sofa.

Our sectional sofa fits perfectly in our small, oddly shaped living room, but leaves almost no room for table or floor lamps.

We're stuck with table lamps across the room or icky overhead lighting, and I'm fed up!...

I've been looking at arc-style lamps, but I'm unsure of the scale because of the windows.

My boy suggested sconces, but we can't do anything hardwired and I'm unsure of only having one (as there is no room on the other side of the big window, although there will be a big piece of art on the wall over the sofa soon).

Any suggestions? Please?

Thanks! Kim
