Take Five: Pendant dining table lights

Take Five: Pendant dining table lights

A table set with wine glasses, chattering guests and the wafting aroma of imminent dinner. These all make for a fine dinner party, but what really sets the mood is lighting. Pendant dining table lights, designed to create a halo of illumination around the dinner plates, bouncing light up so your guests are bathed in a pool of soft light. Light says a lot about a room, and more so a dining room, as many important conversations happen over a plate of home cooking.

In order to create the perfect atmosphere for your next night in, we’ve selected a few of our favourite dining table lights. Fashioned to brighten an array of tables, dining table lights can span the length of a long table or hang above a smaller, more intimate setting. Many can be dimmed or brightened to achieve the appropriate lighting for a variety of gatherings. Table lights are also available, a simple way to mimic candlelight for that next evening tryst.
