If you’re after high quality pendant lighting to adorn your café, restaurant, or bistro then you’ve come to the right place. Sometimes called a drop or suspender light, pendant lighting usually hangs alone from the ceiling and is suspended by a cord, metal rod, or chain. In it’s simplest form a pendant light can be nothing more than a bulb hanging from a cord suspended from the ceiling, however most have a dome or casing which can be as decorative or as simple as you want it to be.
Pendant lighting can be used to great effect when hung in a line to illuminate a particular area and comes in a variety of sizes ranging from relatively small 4in/10cm domes to statement grabbing 30in/76cm domes, although one-off, specially designed pieces can be considerably larger than this. They also come in a wide variety of shapes and styles ranging from the simplified ribbed dome format, used in many an industrial setting, through to jaw dropping expensive glass varieties with intricate flutes.
How can pendant lighting be best used?
In a café/restaurant setting pendant lights are ideal for illuminating counter tops, or suspended over serveries or seating areas. However they can also be used to great effect to spread light over a large area, particularly when used in a foyer or entrance way. For best effect use odd numbers (either one, three, or five) suspended around 36in/91cms above a counter top or 7ft/213cms from the floor in a foyer setting. In addition, most modern pendant lighting utilises energy saving bulbs, so not only are they incredibly versatile, they’re seriously cost effective to run.
