Chandeliers & Linear Suspension
Give yourself a reason to stare at the ceiling.
Why We Love Chandeliers & Linear Suspension
If nothing else, chandeliers and linear suspension finally offer a compelling reason to stare at the ceiling. But there’s so much more to love. They are the statement pieces of the lighting world, a way to suffuse a space with style and personality. And, well, illumination.
They also offer the opportunity to play with the scale and dimension of a space. Modern chandeliers are typically regarded as round, and may be more appropriate for smaller rooms, while linear chandeliers are customarily rectangular, their length ideal for larger areas or to be suspended as kitchen island lights.
Where Chandeliers & Linear Suspension Work Best
Anywhere, really. While most often used for foyer lighting, dining room lighting and kitchen lighting, no one will stop you from hanging a decorative chandelier or linear suspension light in, say, your bedroom. Or even bath. The only caveat in dropping a light from overhead is having a ceiling high enough to comfortably allow it, though we would be remiss to not mention that there can be occasional limitations when it comes to sloped ceilings.
Other Great Options
Pendant lighting could be a suitable alternative, whether it be a cluster of staggered individual lights or a multi-light pendant. Both provide the same aesthetic, though with potentially less drama. And semi flush ceiling lights or low profile ceiling light fixtures would be an option for those who desire some hang, but are limited by ceiling height.
