How to use pendant lights in style


What is an optical high-flyer and what gives light? Pendant lights! They are an intelligent lighting solution and at the same time create a very special atmosphere. We’ll tell you how you can put pendant lights in your home. Let there be light!

The lower the better

There is no reason to hang a pendant lamp high on the ceiling, after all, you want to show off your masterpiece. So hang your lamp a little lower. In such a way, of course, that nobody can bump their head!

Go alone

Would you like to make a bold statement with your pendant light? Then an impressive large lampshade is just the thing. But be careful if you hang other lamps nearby. The lamps should not compete visually with each other. Exception: smaller lamps or luminaires of the same type.

In a row…

Would you like to hang a number of identical lamps next to each other? Perfect, because this is how you create an expressive ambience. A pendant light directly above the dining table? Ensure a maximum color effect here by matching the color of your lamp to that of the chairs. And always remember: an odd number of lamps looks better!
