Look around your home. See any gloomy corners, barren hallways, or lonely nooks? More often than not, with the right light, these overlooked and underused spaces can serve a purpose. Why, they can even bring you joy!
For example, you can hang a pin-up articulated fixture like the Wallace in a matter of minutes (it plugs right in, no wiring required). Place a small table underneath, topped with an attractive basket, and voila! You’ve created a place to corral the mail before it’s strewn all over the kitchen counter. Or try mounting a swing-arm wall fixture like the Halfway in a tight corner — now you have a useful and cheerful display where once dimness reigned.
