led's are the sun's 1st cousin, use those.
Thank you the remodeling lights requires space into the ceiling, I don't want to do any modification to the ceiling, there are rooms above.
Exactly, daytime I have no problem whatsoever.
I agree, but they should be hidden.
4 or 5 strings of white Christmas lights pinned up on the ceiling?
Ok now seriously- there are three types of light that you can mix to get the best effect.
Ambient light, could be - in this case - lights pointed up at the ceiling. Pot lights installed in the ceiling like already mentioned are this type of light.
Task light, table lamps for reading, chandelier for eating, etc.
Accent light, pointed at art or architecture to highlight that.
Mix those three and you’ll get a very nice feeling space.
If you do something like fluorescent tubes strung across the ceiling it just feels like an operating room or office - not pleasant.
Track lighting can be effective at doing all three (but do add some table lamps) depending on where each light is pointed - but track lights are kind of ‘90’s, although I think Home Depot still has them.

Seriously, if you can't snake a line then you have just 2 choices.
A swag like you've shown or more floor/table lamps
A electrician should be able to snake a line without trashing your walls or ceiling if you really want overhead
The room isn’t that big
I'll try to mix between table lamps and task light. Thank you for the suggestion
I don't think there'd be a clean way to snake a line into walls/ceiling. I showed the place to an electrician, he told me that he needs to make canals to pass the wires, or fake ceiling.
It is, but my drawing s**ks like my guitar playing
I love the warm and welcoming table lamps you chose.
Talk or show another electrician. About 2 years ago I was involved in a complete re-wire and service upgrade of a late 1800's home. 3 floor dutch colonial plus attic. Only 2 small (about 4" square) invasive holes had to be cut for the whole job. Simple repair
There’s always improvised lighting - I haven’t gotten around to building a proper stand for it yet

I hope that you can open these attachments Omar, I’m not the best at these computerinthings
Have you tried looking in Pinterest? There are lots of ideas there which might be suitable, and readily transferred as and if you have to.
I know right? And a human bone chandelier to go with..
Really makes me wonder why they just didn't say, "Oh problem solved, end of thread"..
Another angle could be to use a full length or stand mirror in the room to reflect a bit of light.
Your name isn't Addams is it...no special reason, just asking.
another option is to go wireless
get a few of those wireless light hubs. stick them to the ceiling where you want them.
most of them are remote activated.. so dont lose the remote...
some of them come with a "remote" you can mount on the wall like a light switch.
dont know why I didnt think of this before...
these are what my folks use in their boat house.
Definitely go with stylish uplighters.
They are portable, make no holes, and are a better lighting option than ceiling lights because of the way the light is dissipated.
I will do that. Thank you Bob
Many thanks Alan. The link is accessible. You're good at computer things
Battery powered? For temporary use, yes, they sound useful, but for permanent use, I don't think I'd like them..Thank you my friend
Many thanks Stuart. I'll check the local market for them
I'd get one of those acrylic hanging lamps that were hot in the 70's. Match the décor with some shag carpeting and some of that modern furniture from that decade.
If its a theme, people will think you meant to do it.
