Where to use them
Our Richmond pendant is the same size as its medium fixed wall light equivalent; a design we introduced to create more of an impact in larger spaces.
That said, it’s not nearly as large as many of the statement pendants on the market, so it’ll work best when grouped together, or when used alone to highlight smaller areas.
Arguably the most popular place to use pendants is above a kitchen island – or a dining table.
When you’re lighting one area like this, the right number of fixtures will depend on both the task at hand and the scale, but as a rule of thumb, an odd number like three or five tends to look most balanced and visually pleasing.
If you don’t have an island, there’s no reason why you can’t drop a pendant over a kitchen cabinet or sink to ring the changes and create an interesting design feature.
A single pendant can also function as a space-saving replacement for a table lamp; be it over a desk, reading chair or coffee table.
A matching pair, meanwhile, will happily frame a bed or bathroom washstand – even a sofa.
And in the hallway, groups can be used to illuminate the length of the space or the stairwell.
Alternatively, if your home’s entrance way is more modest in size, or you have a porch in need of lighting, just one pendant will prove both practical and eye-catching.
