Rounding up all of our favourite living room lights.
This light in the corner of our living room has had me stumped for months. Obviously the current light has to go, but I’ve been stuck on just what I want to replace with it. I’d love to go with something that leans more on the modern side to offset all the traditional (and even dated) elements in this space, but the placement has been a bit tricky to work with. Not only do I have the sky light opening to work around, which limits the size I can go with in that little corner, but it’s also not even centred in the little corner of the ceiling that I do have to work with. I’ve tried out all sorts of ideas and honestly, there were so many great options, it was really hard to commit to just one. Let me tell you all about my favourites, including which one we went with in the end and why.
Our Favourite Living Room Lights
- Boum Modern Raw Silk Drum
- Auden Modern Blackened Brass
- Boccia Curved Shade
- Sago Rounded Rattan

You can see why I had such a hard time committing to just one! Each of these options would have brought it’s own different feel to our living room space and I was SO torn whether I wanted to do something super modern like options 3 or 11, or whether I wanted to stick with something more traditional that I might just love for a little longer like 13. In the end, I decided to go with something that felt really warm and inviting to me. The more I paint out the oak around our main floor, the more I miss the warmth that it brought into each space and so, I wanted to replace a bit of that warmth (especially considering my plans to paint that built-in right beside this little corner). All that to say that while I could have gone with any one of these options and been over-the-moon about it, I’ve ordered up the Sago Rounded Rattan light for this little corner in our living room. It’s the perfect size for this corner – big enough to carry some presence, but not so big that it will over-power this little corner of ceiling space. Plus, I really love the warmth and texture it will bring to all the white. What do you think? Which living room light is your favourite?
Wishing you SUCH a lovely day my friends!
