If the high ceilings are a dream, the lighting they are given is essential to create a warm atmosphere. By neglecting it, we take the risk of creating an impression of austerity due to the "cathedral" look of space. Zoom on the ideas to take to illuminate a very high living room.

Drop a batch of pendant lights from the ceiling

Roche Bobois Taking advantage of a high ceiling in terms of lighting is possible by opting for an aerial decoration! It is enough to stage the empty volume with suspensions. Here, we recreated the softness of the clouds walking in the sky thanks to paper lampshades with crumpled appearance. But you can also bet on suspensions of bulbs freely dispersed in the air at different heights or on a bouquet of wisely aligned suspensions floating barely 2.30 m from the ground to create a feeling of proximity.

Choose an arched floor lamp to illuminate the sofa corner

Fly The sofa is the central space of the living room: you can quietly read about it, doze off, settle down with friends to have an aperitif or to watch a family movie. If there is a place to be well lit in a living room with a high ceiling, this is it! The ideal? Choose a direct light because its proximity will make you feel in a warm space. Here is a beautiful example with this arched floor lamp!

Multiply light sources

Roche Bobois In a very high living room, it is difficult to guarantee sufficient brightness with a single light source: the lighting will quickly seem to get lost in the void. We therefore do not hesitate to multiply the lighting: table lamps, lampshades, floor lamps. In addition to ensuring good lighting, this accumulation will highlight different areas of the living room such as the library or the sofa area and refocus our gaze on the living space.

Bet on spots

Roche Bobois If the ceiling of your living room is high, you can consider lighting it with spotlights. Despite the distance between them and the floor, the fact that they cover the entire surface of the ceiling is enough to illuminate the space well. Several possibilities are available to you: spots to hang on cables to assert a modern side as above, spots recessed in the ceiling or in a false ceiling to reduce their distance from the ground. It's up to you!
