Also, the shape and size of your table are decisive for the type of pendant lamp. A long dining table requires a 'long' lighting object. For example, there are pendant lights that consist of several light sources that illuminate the full length of the table. For a round or square table you can opt for one single lamp, to be hung in a central position over the table. With this type of pendant lighting note whether the lamp provides directed and/or diffused light.
On top of that the shape and height of the ceiling and space between the pendant lamp and the table are equally important. For high ceilings make sure the lead is sufficiently long. A pendant lamp should not be hung too high, and not too low either. The ideal height for a pendant lamp is just below eye level when you are sitting at the table. Several of our pendant lamps are also supplied with long leads, offering plenty of flexibility for different situations.
