Lamps often provide a warm glow in comparison to the harsh ceiling light.

Do you have lamps in your living areas or do you use only the lights in the ceiling?

As much as I would love lamps, we do not have any right now.
We only use Lamps, and we love them.
I hate overhead lights in the ceiling, and will avoid them any time I can.

You could say I am a Lamp-lover!

If you type into Google ''Unusual Lamps''....be prepared to see some really different lamps!
We have lots of lamps.
We have both. Our ceiling lights don't throw very much light so we each have a lamp for reading. I confess, I'm a bit of a light junkee.
I hate the ceiling lights! After dinner and tidy up we switch them off and just use the lamps. Much nicer on the eyes.
I don't use lamps at all.
I have a floor lamp next to my couch which has two bulbs; one for general lighting which had a lovely soft glow due to the lamp shade, and another which was bright focused for reading purposes. I love to read so this is a perfect setup for me. I don't like having multiple down-lights in the ceiling that are expensive and inefficient to run.
Hi Wandercooks......
We must buy at the same shop! Lol!
But mine is next to my tv viewing 'bed' & where I catch-up newspaper reading!
It looks 'Art Deco' by design. Upturned medium sized bowl atop, like a 'spaceship', giving a 'soft' backlit glow for room, against 'harshness' of bright tv screen, & smaller moveable one below, for reading, as you said. I love the design, & it is EXACTLY what I wanted. Cheers!

I thought lamps were finished as an accessory last decade ?

Perhaps we didn't get the memo, lol.

I only use ceiling lights as cannot have cords around the house due to my dog going blind -he would trip.

Always have had a beautiful Lamp in the Lounge Room, which gives out a lovely soft light, so sitting in comfy chair, listening to stereo playing is a real joy!
We only have the ceiling lights. In your living areas, which I assume means the lounge/ dining areas, I like to be able to see what I am doing. Whether it be eating, entertaining guests, watching tv or doing written work at the table, I need to see. We recently renovated our house, and I stressed to the electrician that I needed good lighting for my day to day usage, and that is exactly what we have now.
I have several lamps in the two living areas of my home. I think they lend a pleasant ambience to the rooms. I find ceiling lights can be a bit harsh so much prefer lamps. I also use lamps in my bedrooms and only occasionally use the overhead lights.
I use ceiling lights, but we do have lamp shades in our bedroom, ans I still use the ceiling lights.
