You can invite the guests, prepare the dinner, travel out of town to find the right drinks. You can dress the table with napkins, cutlery holders and a crockery set to impress. Yet a dining table setting just isn’t the same without a light at its centre. The ancients used candelabras; today, we use pendant lights. These forty pendant lights bring a glow to your table and a focal point to your dinner party. Entertain guests under painted gold, with a row of differently-shaped lights. Beam light across the room, with an LED diffusing light horizontally. Take a peek at your next dinner table feature in our list below.
