Accent Lighting Can Enhance the Appeal of Luxury Furniture and Interior Décor
For a vast majority of Toronto and area residents, and almost all Canadians for that matter, it might be hard to conceive the ability to see in the dark without the benefit of electricity. Unlike their ancestors from the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Modern Era, who relied on moonlight, candles, and oil lamps to light their lodgings and barns, today’s society simply needs to flip a switch, so to speak, to move through or use a completely or partly unlit area.
It would be similarly difficult for those forebearers to comprehend what is taken for granted in the present day. In past eras, lighting was more cut and dried; if people did not add light to a room/space, they sat in the dark. For their descendants today, however, house lighting is not only at their fingertips, it has evolved such that it is now available in several different forms (incandescent, fluorescent, halogen, LED) and units of power (wattage).
This level of sophistication has been further refined to the point where homeowners are now using lighting as an adjunct or an accessory to the high-end furniture in their home. This is commonly referred to as accent lighting, which can be more formally defined as follows:
- Light that is focused on a specific area, object, or artifact to create visual interest, or
- An object with a self-contained light source that serves as a piece of functional décor
Whereas the former definition may more often be associated with museum exhibits or large portraits in the foyers of stately mansions, the latter concept will likely be more relevant to, and appreciated by, discriminating Toronto homeowners. In other words, choosing the ideal accent lighting for a home can enhance the appeal of luxury furniture as well as the overall character of the décor, while also providing the functional benefit of illumination.
Toronto and area residents looking to complement their high-end furniture and décor with the correct type of accent lighting might find it beneficial to visit the Carrocel furniture store showroom, located at 245 Bridgeland Avenue near Yorkdale Mall. Throughout this 20,000 square-foot display space, homeowners can browse a superb collection of house lighting for any/all rooms in their residences, including:
- Living Room
- Dining Room
- Library or Den
- In-Home Office
When shopping for accent lighting, it is important to remember that such accessories should supplement the high-end furniture rather than being the main focus of the room. To that end, the professionals at Carrocel fine furniture can offer valuable advice and guidance on the choice of lighting based on the style of furniture and décor in a particular room/setting.
