Always when a dining room, a dinette (dining corner), a breakfast kitchen or another dining are is to be illuminated properly, the purchase of a table light is a sensible measure. A lighting for a table light can come in many shapes, there is virtually no limit to the fantasy concerning this matter. Main criteria on searching the perfect table light are the aspects regarding glare control, colour rendition and all-over illumination of the table surface. Round pendant lights such as the design classic “PH 5” by Louis Poulsen go particularly well with similarly shaped dining tables. Long tables are more suitable for elongate pendant lights like the “Fridtjof 4” by Mawa Design or multi-lamp versions like “Serien Lighting Reef”, which also generates smooth general lighting due its innovative material.
The “Flos Skygarden” is a prime example of the perfect symbiosis between lighting impact and impressive design. At first sight, the pendant light with its glazed aluminium surface is shaped like a hemisphere and appears a bit sober and reserved. Yet on looking at the inner side of the shade the creator’s (star designer Marcel Wanders) appreciation of art unfolds – when a relief with an antique look, made of flower twines and flush ornamentation, wins the viewer inevitably over. This visual appeal is utilized in the living room as well, where the table light is hung over the couch table.
In case the dining table isn’t located under a ceiling outlet and you have problems connecting to a power supply, off-centre pendant lights can still help position the light source centrally. Especially successful representatives of this exotic yet extremely functional types of light are “Tolomeo Sospensione Decentrata” by Artemide and “Moove” by Lumina.
Table lights – functional eye catcher in the dining room
Versatility is a further property of table lights. So, pendant lights adjustable in height can be moved into the direction of the table or pulled towards the ceiling, just as desired. If you wish to spend some time with your friends after the meal, you will be served best with a dimmable table light.
Table lights are an essential accessory in every room. They have to spread the right light in dark environments and symbolize something significant at daylight. If you want to have a table light that not just gives off the appropriate light, but also delivers an additional visual value, you should think about buying a table light with a certain sophisticated design. Table lights are available in many sizes and different designs, so that they interact harmoniously with every room.
