Over a dining table: Even conventional chandeliers have morphed into tubular modern forms in interesting compositions. And large scale drum shapes add flair. Hang a pair or three to five (odd numbers are pleasing to the eye) along the length of the table. Stagger the heights for interest, say three on one level, two slightly higher. General guidelines are 30 inches above (with an 8-foot ceiling, adding three inches for each additional foot). The outer edge of the lamp should be at least 12 inches from the outer edge of the table (especially with large ones, so your head doesn’t bump into it).
For larger living spaces, a matched pair or even a set of multiple pendants can add style throughout. Space them evenly and hang them close to the ceiling. Linear pendants cover lots of area and help direct light to distant corners of a room.
Why choosing a pendant lamp for a bedroom? For several reasons, and the first is saving the space: even the smallest bedroom can be lit up with a pendant lamp, and you don’t need any bedside tables to accommodate a lamp. Second, creating several layers of light is a good idea for any space, especially for a bedroom: they will make it look more spacious and you will be able to change the lighting according to your mood.
Before making a purchase, make sure you have measurements of tables and sofas so that you can properly scale pieces. A photo of your room is helpful, so you can imagine how different shapes and materials will play, like open weaves, cages, wire lamps, antiqued metal or on-trend mixed metals. And try to see what the lamp looks like illuminated. Some new layered lamps have sheer outer fabric and diffusers that create a soft haze of ambient light within.
