The dining room is increasingly becoming a welcoming meeting point in everyday life: not only do family and friends gather around the dining table at dinner time, it is also a place for parties and cosy get-togethers. In this respect, the focused illumination of the dining table plays an important role. Only proper lighting creates a festive board in the dining room, on which the food, drinks and the table decorations are effectively highlighted – a cosy island of light that invites you to stay. This means that the table takes centre stage and becomes the impressive highlight of the room. Here, the persons sitting
around the table enjoy their meal in a subdued diffused light.
Most of the times, the zone lighting is provided by a pendant light such as the Marset Discocó 53. The pendant light softly diffuses its light in all directions, while the major part is directed downwards. This designer light also visually upgrades the dining room with its unique look that is reminiscent of flower blossoms. As a general rule, it is important to make sure that the distance between the pendant light and the table is neither too large nor too small.
A distance of at least 60 cm between the tabletop and the luminaire is considered to be optimum. This way, the light that is emitted through open lampshades does not dazzle you and you are still able to see the persons at the table. Flexibility is provided by continuously adjustable lights such as the Twin. This pendant light by the German provider Serien Lighting can be adjusted in width and height thanks to the concertina principle – the ideal solution for an extendable table.

However, light fixtures in the dining room can take over other tasks than only the illumination of the dining table. Paintings or art objects often serve as decorative elements in this room. Beautiful cupboards and precious shelves are also often part of the interior design. These items can be impressively highlighted by means of
These luminaires are experts of focused lighting and are therefore a smart solution for artworks. Their focused rays of light trace the outlines and generate marvellous shadows. The quick and easy assembly as well as the low space requirements are the advantages of a clip-on light, for instance, the Artemide Tolomeo Micro Pinza. This practical light source also offers the opportunity to place particular emphasis on selected objects – due to its exemplary flexibility spontaneous changes do not present any problems.

If you prefer ambient lighting instead of zone lighting in the dining room, it is recommended to make use of ceiling lights, wall lamps or floor lamps that diffuse their light in all directions. If the dining table is large and representative it is also possible to install a chandelier, for instance, the Serien Lighting Zoom which cuts a great figure here. On the one hand, this impressive lustre completely illuminates the room and on the other hand, it adds a touch of elegant grandeur to its surrounding area.
