I love the pieces that are clustered by design, meaning the lighting fixture itself includes a whole bunch of small pendants.
But recently I’ve been more interested in groupings of pendants that don’t match and are created simply by hanging individual fixtures together.
The shop was actually selling the metal backsplash pieces.
But I was drawn to those cool, industrial lights – and the way they’ve been hung in a group. And not only are the three pieces different but they’re hung at different heights, which makes the small cluster even more interesting.
Niche Lighting has some fantastic examples of this type of clustering. The photo below is an Aveda store with a beautiful selection of Niche lighting.
Obviously, the above is an example used in a business. But there’s no reason this couldn’t be done on a smaller scale across a dining room table. And it would look gorgeous!
Below left is another example from Niche Lighting – this one at a Hilton at the London Heathrow Airport.
And above right is a modified version hung over a dining room table. This room was featured in Southern Living and I found it at MyHomeIdeas.com. I’d hang those dining room pendants a little lower but the look is spot on. So pretty.
I also like the look below. In this photo from Better Homes and Gardens, white pendants that are similar but of different sizes were hung in a line to create a more subtle look. Still beautiful.
Is this a look you like? Do you enjoy the variety? Or do you want something a little more orderly.
