Library lights have been around for years but they are now being used more commonly in residential settings. I love any form of accent lighting that highlights focal points within a room. Library lights above a bookcase create visual interest to a book collection.
They add formality to this home office.
But I love how they are being used in more unexpected places such as above joinery in living rooms.
An alternative option that gives a more contemporary feel are these sconce wall lights.
They are a great opportunity to introduce metallics to a space.
In a kitchen, they are the perfect task lighting option in place of recessed downlights.
Yes, I am a sucker for library lights. There may just be one (or four!) in our new build……
