Perfect for contemporary dining rooms, we offer modern hanging lights made from metal, glass, linen, paper or polypropylene. For kitchen islands, hang a series of slim contemporary pendant lamps to brighten and add ambiance. Hanging lamps are also gaining popularity in contemporary bedrooms placed over a bed or hung over nightstands. Most require hard wiring, but we also carry modern hanging accent lamps that plug into a standard outlet so they can be easily installed and moved.
How people perceive scale has a lot to do with objects in their head height space and above. Hanging lamps are an opportunity to augment the sense of scale of a space. For example, a triple height entry space can be accentuated by hanging a long chandelier down from the top of the space to a few feet above the head. This will draw the eye up and into the space, focusing on the three point perspective above and creating a different perception of the space. Linear hanging lamps can draw the eye through the corridor of a space and accentuate its length, drawing on the one point perspective. More than just adding light to a space, hanging lamps can completely transform our perception of a space.
