Contemporary pendant lights have, in recent years, become more powerful statements as decorative accessories for any decor. Adding character to your whole space, they can be used to add contrast, colour and symmetry, all of which can create a dramatic transformation to your rooms and existing interior decor.
At By Living, we want to help you explore a wide range of options in creating your perfect room through our pendant lights and décor ideas.
Now, throughout our time working with our clients and friends on their designs, we have had two questions come up quite often. To best help you decide how to design your space, we have wanted to answer them here with the hope that it helps you in your creative process.
WHERE CAN YOU PLACE YOUR PENDANT LIGHTS?
We all have personal preferences, but there are a few general guidelines to ensure your pendant lights are paramount in the home or office décor.
A great diagram, detailing these guidelines is below.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE NUMBER OF PENDANT LIGHTS FOR YOUR DECOR?
For great functionality and effective lighting, the space between the pendant lights should be uniform according to the available space. Using general guidelines, as per the diagram below, choosing the number of lights best suited to your décor can be quite simple.
Minimum distance required between the pendant lights in feet = Length of the space in feet ÷ (Number of pendant lights + 1)
If you’re curious as to what light might best suit your needs, BELOW ARE SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE PENDANT LIGHTS AND SHAPES FOR CREATING BEAUTIFUL INTERIOR DÉCOR.
Our Chrome Concrete Pendant Lights: These bring new depth to any home décor.
Concrete is a material typically seen on raw walls and floors, but it has gone through a transformation in recent years, especially in Australia. They add texture and an industrial feel to any space and are a great contrast to warmer décor.
Our Timber and Metal Pendant Lights: This contemporary option combines sleek metal lines with the subtle, warming finish of natural timber. Versatile shapes and industrial looks can add a whimsical and refined, yet old-world feel to any room.
Our Modern Timber Twig Pendant Chandelier: This velvet and timber lamp can transform any room into a forest or magical escape. This chandelier’s innovate edge creates a soft and charming feel that is ideal for office spaces, living rooms or bedrooms.
Our Ashwood White Pendant Lights: This carved pendant light, made with a fusion of concrete and ashwood is ideal for areas with lots of hard, straight lines as it softens edges and brings out the best in the little details. This pendant is particularly strong when paired with chrome details.
Our White Shade Timber Floor Lamp: The pure white design and combination of hard and soft lines, with its unique timber layering, this floor lamp creates an easy (and mobile) spotlight on any surface you want to highlight. We love these for living areas and besides your desks.
