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 look up at the ceiling. But there's so much more to love about this style of ceiling light. Chandeliers and linear ceiling fixtures are the statement pieces of the lighting world, a way to suffuse a space with sytle and personality, as well as illumination.
These modern light fixtures also offer the opportunity to play with the scale and dimension of a space. Modern chandeliers are typically regarded as round fixtures and may be more appropriate for small rooms while linear suspension lighting takes on a rectangular shape, making them ideal for larger areas or suspended over kitchen islands.
Where Chandeliers & Linear Suspension Work Best
This collection of chandeliers and linear suspension lights can find their home almost anywhere. While most often used for entryway and foyer lighting, dining room lighting or kitchen lighting, no one will stop you from hanging a decorative chandelier anywhere in the house. In the entryway, a chandelier or linear ceiling light makes a noticeable statement that will leave a lasting impression on your guests. Over the dining table, you will love the ample illumination a linear fixture provides for casual or intimate dinner parties. In the kitchen, look to a linear chandelier as island lighting. While some kitchen islands benefit from the use of a cluster of mini pendant lights, a linear suspension will provide optimal lighting coverage from a single light source. Chandeliers can even be used in bedrooms and bathrooms where enough ceiling space is available. Wherever you choose to place a chandelier or linear fixture, you are guaranteed to be happy with its decorative impact.
A Chandelier or Linear Suspension for Every Style
Chandeliers and linear lights are available in a variety of design styles including contemporary, transitional, purely functional, retro-inspired and much more. For an ultra-modern chandelier or linear suspension, you will want to look to the fixtures available from renown designers like Luceplan or Moooi. Traditionally styled homes benefit from chandeliers and suspensions by Hudson Valley Lighting and you will want to check out the variety of crystal chandeliers if you are in need of a piece that will speak to your sense of luxury. Irrespective of your choice of home decor, you are sure to find a chandelier style here that will match it.
Choosing the Right Size Chandelier or Linear Suspension
Do you need a small chandelier? A large chandelier? What size linear suspension is ideal for your dining table? Properly measuring your space is especially important when buying a chandelier or linear suspension. Because these fixtures are often large, it's important to get the best gauge of the light's width, height, weight and cable suspension length before having it installed in your home. Look to the specific details on a product page to best understand the chandelier's dimensions before buying.

Other Great Options
In addition to chandeliers and linear suspension as your primary source of ceiling lighting, you can complement and layer the overall light in the space with portable lamps and wall sconces. Consider placing a couple of wall uplights or floor and table lamps near your chandelier to ensure a well lit room. And due to their rectangular shape and size, a linear fixture is a great choice of lighting to hang over a pool table.
