Interior design with a second light

From history to modernity
The interiors of the second light were still in the Middle Ages in churches, shrines, government buildings and in the homes of influential people. In those days, artificial light (candles) was not used as often, and the rooms needed it.Therefore, this solution allowed us to solve several issues at once – to make the room brighter and to decorate the facade of the entire structure.

Not today, interiors with a second light are found not only in the above-mentioned buildings, but also in private houses and city apartments. In the latter case, it can be a penthouse or a two-level apartment.

Such a solution is especially popular in loft-style apartments. In private homes, the range of styles is wider – the interior of a house with a second light can personify Empire, Baroque, Rococo, Classical, Rustic and similar directions.
