What is a Pendant?
How high above the table should a Pendant hang?
Ideally, the Pendant should hang 80-100cm above the table top. An unwritten rule of good Pendant positioning is – you should be able to look under it when sitting at the table, and it should be at approximately eye level when you stand.
We’d advise trying different heights while standing and sitting before deciding. It’s also a good idea to consider the varying heights of the people living in your household!

Are pendant lights out of style?
No! For much of the 80s and 90s, pendant lights were often unremarkable, but new styles and designs have thoroughly resurrected pendant lights over the past few years.
There are now so many different styles to choose from it's inconceivable that you won't be able to find a pendant light that doesn't look great in your room!
What is a pendant light used for?
A pendant light typically hangs down from the ceiling in the middle of a room, and is therefore the traditional "big light" that would need turning on when people gathered to eat, play boardgames etc.
Today, however, there are so many different types of pendant light – many of them dimmable – that they can greatly enhance the whole feel of a room. It's no longer just about functionality – a wonderful pendant light can set the scene for a whole interior design project.
How to choose a pendant light
The sky is the limit when it comes to pendant lights. First ask yourself what purpose you want your light to serve (powerful overhead light to brighten a large room? Dimmable, ultra-chic light to add a dash of style?).
Then consider the available space – is your intended choice the right shape and size, and can you give it the requisite drop space? Thirdly look at the style that would work best for you – it could be a simple, single hanging lantern-style pendant, or a multi-arm pendant. Or an artistic LED creation that you might see in a luxury hotel!
What is the difference between a pendant light and a ceiling light?
When people talk about ceiling lights, they are typically referring to a light fitting that is placed flush to the ceiling. A classic example would be a circular light you might see in the ceiling of a hospital.
Pendant lamps, meanwhile, are suspended from the ceiling; they hang down. While they are certainly a type of ceiling light, the cord that drops down from the ceiling is integral to the light's design and differentiates it from other types of ceiling light.
