Most of us follow convention when hanging lights. We naturally place fixtures over the kitchen island, dining table, and maybe in the entry hall. It is increasingly rare to see a chandelier in a living room. And the popularity of open living/dining/kitchen spaces has accelerated the death of the living room pendant, with focus firmly fixed on the dining table.
No ceiling lights? No problem! You can still create a central light source with an arc floor lamp. The arcs on these types of lamps are generally fairly high, ensuring that no one will bump their heard when walking underneath, but considered placement is still important. Keep in mind that these lamps are quite modern and work best in contemporary settings.
It’s important to scale the size of the pendant to the room. One general rule is to add up the length and width of the room in feet and use the same number in inches for the pendant’s diameter. Also consider whether the pendant is providing ambient light or task lighting or accent lighting. You can coordinate your bedroom pendant lights with other lighting you’ve chosen, including recessed lights, wall sconces and flush-mounted lighting fixtures.
Pendant lights have been around for a while, but that doesn’t mean there’s only one way to use them. In fact, far from it. Occasionally you need to shake things up by combining traditional design elements with new pendant light ideas. Often the results turn out better than you ever could have imagined.
