A great place to set up track lighting is the living room.

Make your living room a cozy and inviting place to hang out with a bold track light, complemented by warm accent lights like floor and table lamps.

Pick from different colors and styles to really pull a room together. A wire-mesh pendant lamp can create a more industrial vibe while one with a simple, translucent body can give just the right amount of class and elegance.

 

Lamps

Sconces

For the unfamiliar, sconce lighting are wall-mounted lights that aren’t usually too large or unwieldy. They’re often used to create balance or add accents to a space; think of a door or a bathroom mirror with a wall lamp on either side.
