When it comes to home decor, you’ve been in the dark for way too long—and we mean that literally. There’s no need to read by candlelight à la Abe Lincoln these days, unless you really want to, of course.
Lucky for you and your eyesight, Macy’s carries lighting fixtures that brighten your home while adding style to its design. If you’re not sure how to pick out lamps and lighting that work for your space, don’t stress. We’ve got you covered with some tips below.
Because they’re usually quite narrow, hallways are best lit with wall lighting like sconces. These won’t take up valuable floor space and can be repeated down a long hallway if it requires more light.
Bedrooms nearly always have a source of overhead lighting installed in the ceiling, but sometimes it can cast too much light around the room, especially at night.
Lamp sets make an elegant solution to this problem. Simply set them atop nightstands on both sides of the bed to provide targeted light on demand.
Living Room Styles
Modern homes are often designed with open kitchen-living room layouts, which leave some corners darker than others.
Correct this by supplementing the ceiling lighting with decorative floor lamps placed in any shadowy spots. Even if that’s not the case in your house, a floor lamp adds instant height and drama to any space.
To create a welcoming and well-lit vignette in any room, accent a side table with a table lamp. Table lamps are an easy way to incorporate a touch of whimsy into your decor: try one with a unique shape, a bold color or a theme that appeals to you.

Let there be light…in your home! It’s time to shop a great selection of lamps and lighting fixtures at Macy’s.
