The More the Merrier

Now for a little mathematics equation… (wait, I thought I went into design to ensure I’d never have to do long division again!) If you have a 106″ dining table, what size should your light fixture be? The answer: there’s not one. Sure,  you’d like to think that a round table dictates a round fixutre, and a long rectangular table needs a skinny long fixture, but that’s not necessarily the case. What adds lighting interest in a room is the juxtaposition of sizes and numbers. Lately, I’ve been using multiple chandeliers or even oversized pendants over dining tables to not only give more light, but add a sense of continuity and interest. Check out these examples on how to choose the right lighting for your space:
