Choosing a Pendant Lamp NZ
A pendant lamp nz is an excellent option for lighting any room in your home. It adds style and personality to the decor and can also be a conversation piece for guests. However, choosing the right one for your space isn’t always easy. There are a number of factors you need to consider to ensure you choose the best pendant for your needs.
For starters, it’s important to consider the size of the pendant you want. There are small, mini pendants that are very simple in design that can work well for a contemporary setting or you could go with a larger, traditional pendant like the one by New Works that features a hand-blown smoked glass shade and an intricate branch design. Ideally, the bottom of the shade should sit just above eye level when you’re sitting or standing so it doesn’t interfere with your view or detract from the rest of your decor.
Another factor to consider is the height of the ceiling. You want to be sure the fixture won’t be too high that you bang your head when walking in and out of the room. It’s best to install a pendant at least 30 cm above the table or counter when you’re seated. Similarly, kitchen bench lights should be installed so they’re not too close to the cooktop where they might get in the way of your activities but high enough to create mood.
You can even use a pendant light in a hallway or foyer to add a touch of elegance to the space. The Pendant by New Works is an excellent example of this, with its organic branches and natural smoked glass shade that echoes the shapes of nature. It’s a beautiful statement piece that can be used as an artistic focal point to draw attention to a gallery wall or to create a welcoming atmosphere for guests when they enter the home.
Another option for a foyer or entryway is the Wonboyn pendant by Auckland sculptor Gidon Bing. It’s crafted from local cane and woven by hand using traditional techniques that make it truly unique. This is a pendant that can be used to welcome your guests into the home while adding a sense of hygge. It’s a light that will look just as beautiful with a traditional Edison bulb as it does with a modern LED.
