The fact that you are likely reading this online testifies to how ingrained our culture’s transient and casual consumption habits are; this cultural behavior is supported by the ephemerality of the objects that we consume—from information online to more or less disposable material goods. But for all that, it shouldn’t be a luxury to own a well-made, heirloom-grade piece of consumer-wear. This is particularly true of one’s own home—possibly the least fleeting of material goods in our lives, and one that can be passed on down through the generations to remain a fixed site of beauty in one’s community. It makes sense to furnish your home with pieces that will endure just as timelessly and heartily as your house. Lighting falls into that odd category that neither really belongs to furniture nor to fixed structural features: lighting helps both to make a space and to make a space seen. To make the most out of your investment in lighting décor, you must make sure to choose the type of lighting instalment that best suits your home—be that a Hudson Valley sconce, a floor lamp, a chandelier, pot lights, or a combination of these.
