Symmetrical balance meets geometric simplicity with linear suspensions.
Why We Love Linear Suspension Lighting
With their generally rectangular shape, linear suspension lights are a great way to make a room look wider (or longer), and since their shape lies along a single plane, it's easy to keep a room from becoming over-stimulated with ceiling lights. These types of chandeliers are especially great over long dining room tables and billiards tables, complementing their shape and providing the downlighting needed.
Where Linear Suspension Lighting Works Best
Contemporary suspension lights lend themselves to the modern dining room and kitchen thanks to their horizontal length and bright downlighting. Crystal suspension lights from James R. Moder and Swarovski Lighting are particularly prone to taking the stage in the dining room, their glitzy appearance creating beautiful prisms on neighboring walls and surfaces. Also consider linear suspension lights as an alternative to traditional ceiling lights in the game room, giving the space a bit more edge and illumination than, say, a traditional flush mount ceiling light would.
Other Great Options
You may want to consider multi-light pendants. Many of these designs have similar length but separate into 3 or more individual lights all wired through a single track system.
