In this living room, a casual backdrop of white paneling contrasts imaginatively with designer Leanne Ford's use of a more formal tufted leather sofa and Oriental rug, as seen on HGTV's Restored by the Fords.
Without proper lighting, even the most stylish space isn't truly complete. Every room needs a combination of general lighting, task lighting and accent lighting to set a mood and provide sufficient illumination. Table and floor lamps, which typically fall under the task lighting category, are especially important because they play both a functional and decorative role in your home. Size, shape and style all need to be taken into account when selecting lamps to suit both your lighting needs and taste in home decor.
The charcoal gray sofa in this gorgeous living room anchors the airy space and provides a neutral backdrop for the playful mix of accent pillows. An Arco lamp adds overhead lighting and a sense of movement.
