For everyone else, with overhead cabinets or limited space, Stiletto’s Glühwürmchen DeLight is ideal. The plug-in light fits into the kitchen ambience regardless of your kitchen’s design and is a practical kitchen and work light. It only needs a socket, then quickly becomes a light source with additional light for the working area.
Over a cocktail table: A single lamp in a simple shape can be dramatic, hanging low over the center of a cocktail table. In a living room with an 11 foot ceiling, a lamp with a 75-inch drop might hang just 28 inches above a low, 16 ¾ inch tall cocktail table. For more impact, try hanging a cluster of medium size pendants in staggered heights.
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).
One important factor to consider when looking at pendant lights is your ceiling height. Unless the pendant is to be hung over a countertop or table, the style is best installed in rooms with a ceiling height of at least nine feet. When hanging a pendant light over a table or countertop, allow 28 inches to 32 inches above the surface of the table, adjusting slightly for personal preference, lighting fixture size or ceiling height. When hanging pendant lighting over a sink in a master bedroom suite, ensure that the fixtures are hanging high enough to clear the head of anyone using the sink. In addition, lights used in the bathroom should be made of materials that are rated for damp rooms.
