If there is one single piece of decor that can instantly change the look and feel of a space, it’s lighting. Whether you’re looking to add visual interest to a space with a beautiful focal point or trying to subdivide a room without putting walls up, a little bit of carefully-placed lighting can go a long way. From setting the mood to making a splash, from helping you to read more comfortably to helping to lift your mood, there is a light for practically any purpose.
