Need advice for smart lighting options... In an apartment
August 18, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Hi! I'm living in a rented apartment at the moment and have found that past 8pm I can't see the floor. With only one large window and one ceiling light fixture, I'm in desperate need of some more light.

I would love some overhead lighting and was wondering if there was a type of fixture that didn't need to be installed in the ceiling, rather just hung from the ceiling and plugged into the wall. I know it may not look the best, but it's better than throwing away my security deposit.

I'm also just looking for lamps. I was wondering if anyone had any favorite websites for lighting. I'm a college student on a college student budget, so less is more for me. I also don't own a car, so online is my best bet... I live by and love amazon but with thousands of options it's hard to know where to start. Any other suggestions?

Thanks, in advanced!

Staged for Perfection
Look at lighting at World Market or ikea. Both those companies sell a swag kit and shades/light fixtures that can hang from a cord that is plugged in
