This strikingly modern living room is a luxurious example of interior and lighting design working together to define the character of a space. Recessed can lighting around the perimeter of the room takes care of ambient light, allowing creatively placed feature lamps to be scattered around the room for maximum visual effect. The handsome tall standing lamp and the clever floor lantern both utilize bulbous opaque shades, adding humor and interest in an otherwise stark design. The theme is carried on by the unusual fixture which provides task lighting at the back table.
