Light fixtures are a perfect way to change the overall feel of any room setting. Some builders and contractors often view lighting as an afterthought rather than a critical style element. The right lighting fixture can transform a room into something new, unique and exciting. LAMPSUSA offers a huge selection of the finest lighting products. LAMPSUSA carries the latest lighting styles from America's leading manufacturers including Quoizel, Uttermost, E.L.K., Kichler, Dale Tiffany, Designers Fountain, Quorum, Monte Carlo, Murray Feiss, Dolan Designs, Lite Source and more.

Any interior designer will tell you that good lighting is the most important element of home decorating. Whatever the style, the lighting in a room sets the mood. Light fixtures are versatile and allow you to express your individual taste and style. General Lighting is the most basic form of lighting, also known as "ambient" lighting, and is used in place of natural sunlight. It enables us to see what we are doing whether it be walking through a room or seeing during conversation. It can be accomplished through the use of lamps, chandeliers, ceiling or wall mounted fixtures. It is fundamental to any home or room.

Flush mount ceiling and sconce wall light fixtures can create a warm and inviting atmosphere, while providing you with the ambient lighting you need to greet guests and assure safety throughout your home. Chandeliers add sparkle and drama to a room, while pendants are best for task lighting. Accent Lighting adds intrigue, drama and flare to any room. Use it to focus attention on artwork, highlight architectural features, or set a mood. The key to accent lighting is to provide at least three times as much light on the focal point as the ambient light around it.

You'll find the perfect fixture to light up any home or office. LAMPSUSA is the premiere online source for lamps and lighting, offering selection, price, and convenience. Save 20-50% off suggested list prices everyday. Our everyday prices often beat other "builder discount" pricing.

Interior Lighting Basics

Most interior lighting is focused more on function and serves a purpose instead of decorating a room. This is not the case at LAMPSUSA, where the selection of interior lighting is both beautiful and practical.

The interior lighting choices at LAMPSUSA are impressive with a style to fit any need and decor. Consider a traditional pendant light with a single lamp and an attractive glass shade. A wall sconce can be a pleasant addition to a room and can serve not only as a source of light, but as a conversation piece as well.

Flush mount fixtures are found overhead in nearly every room of the house and are available in a number of attractive metal finishes and colorful glass shades. For the bathroom, LAMPSUSA has an outstanding selection of fixtures that mount on the wall and bring light and beauty to any bathroom.

LAMPSUSA also offers a splendid choice of traditionally styled fixtures that are both modern while reminiscent of days gone by.

No matter which hard-wired interior lighting fixture you choose, LAMPSUSA has the style, color and size to fit most any home at the lowest prices anywhere!

How-To's & Tips - Pendant Lighting Basics
Pendant lights are usually 9 inches or more in diameter. Some might call them chandeliers, but pendants are usually more contained and less "sprawling" than a chandelier. If you are looking for a smaller pendant, check out our mini-pendants. Pendant lights are commonly available in single or multiple pieces that ensure a distinctive appeal and alluring effect. The intensity of light required to illuminate any area can be decided by the choice of bulb used in the lighting fixture. Pendant fixtures are used with dim and natural lights to give the best possible effect to any room.
