The main light fixture should offer plenty of light. Some designers are moving away from this traditional solution, although this is usually an overhead fixture. In addition to being the primary source of light, this fixture should add aesthetic appeal to the room because it will be a focal point. Choose something inviting, bold, or creative according to the room decor and taste, but let it be something inherently decorative. Many homeowners enjoy installing chandeliers or pendant and hanging fixtures from the living and sitting room for this reason.
