The living room has always been an important gathering space within the home. However, as people have spent more time within it recently, they are seeking inspiration to refresh the space. Research from Houzz shows that searches for living room ideas are up 52 percent over the past two years.

What's one of the best ways to refresh your living room? With fabulous lighting! Here are our picks for ways to refresh your living room decor using the latest design trends, and of course, new lighting.

Shades of Blue and Gold
Refresh your room with trendsetting upholstered furniture in luscious fabrics like velvet or gorgeous textures like a boucle fabric. This living room has rich, luxurious blue and gold velvet furnishings that pop against a crisp white color palette. Black framed windows and French doors complement the Elara Collection lighting finished in crisp black found throughout the living room. The Elara chandelier, wall sconces, and foyer pendant feature the collection's slender, chic form with stylized finials inspired by a chess pawn for a classically modern style.

Universal Appeal
Neutral colors, touches of warm wood, and strong vertical lines unify this living room with the rest of the open-plan space. This living room is centered by the sleek lines and solid metal silhouette of the Spicer ceiling fan that stirs the air in style. A pair of oversized Parkhurst pendants over the kitchen island gives the area structure and definition. The bold lighting theme continues with the Saffert pendant over the dining table, whose substantial scale offers a modern urban look.

Retro Appeal
Uncluttered, sleek lines, warm wood and a visually light interior describe mid-century modern spaces. The Delayne ceiling light in black has a retro appeal defined by arms extending outward from a rounded, central support. Decorative light bulbs in a clear or white finish further enhance this dynamic style. Add pair of airy, clean pendants like Lorin against a natural wood feature wall. Elegantly designed, Lorin features sleek metal wires gathered by a smooth, wide metal collar, creating a stylized trumpet silhouette.

Relax in Style
Comfort is key for living rooms in today's world. Combine various textures, soft colors, and soothing patterns to offer a relaxing ambiance and a sink-into appeal. Natural and earthy grays on the fireplace and wall treatments offset subtle creamy pink furniture and accessories: these tones bring a true sense of comfort. Finally, make a statement with not one but three Astra pendants installed over the seating area. Astra is an iconic fixture that features an organic, asymmetrical design with a touch of space-age, retro inspiration.
