The dining table is a multi-functional area where we eat, entertain, bond and make memories. When lighting your dining table, it is essential to incorporate the perfect lights that suit your interior preferences to create a seamless dining experience.
Embracing Pendant Lighting Over Dining Tables
Dining room lights provide effortless elegance, statement and style over dining tables. Dining room pendant lights used as a centrepiece in the room will cast light throughout the room and set the tone for your dinner parties.
Whether your dining interiors are modern or have a vintage feel, we offer a vast range of stunning pendant lights available in different styles, finishes, shades and fixture types.
Giant Dining Room Light Fixtures
Place giant light fixtures at the centre of the dining table for an intimate soft glow. Modern giant lights provide an eye-catching statement that subtly complements your existing interiors.
You can hang your pendants lower than usual over your dining table to embrace a unique look while creating the perfect intimate dining experience.
Embrace Natural Lighting in Dining Spaces
Place your dining table near windows of any size to make the most of natural lighting. Embracing natural lighting throughout your dining areas boosts mood and reduces energy consumption within your interiors.
When natural lighting doesn’t seem quite enough, place one or two modern ceiling lights over your table for an instant warm glow. The pendant lights above your table are a great way to supplement natural lighting when the days and evenings become darker.

These stunning lighting fixtures are available with a choice of three, five or nine pendant lights for an atmosphere of drama and depth above your dining table. With a wide array of shade designs and fixture types, this collection can be adapted to suit all interior design preferences.
Dimming and Control Options For Dining Tables
Placing dimmer switches and control options in dining spaces provides a relaxed ambience as being able to alter the light levels allows you to create the perfect atmosphere for you and your dinner guests.
Our extensive range of indoor lighting is compatible with dimmer switches and control options so you can tailor your chosen lighting to your interior style preferences.
Incorporating a Row of Light Sources Over a Dining Table
Perfect for more extended dining tables, incorporating a row of multiple light sources enables light to be evenly distributed over the table and surrounding interiors.
For rectangular tables, place a row of three or five vintage pendant lights depending on length for redefined equal light and a stunning statement.

Embracing Task Lighting
Task lighting creates the right balance between the well-lit interiors and a space that looks good.
Incorporating task lighting into your dining table interiors allows you to dine and complete tasks on your table comfortably. Pendant lights are ideal for dining tables as these lighting fixtures provide a distinct focal point while producing pockets of functional light.
Illuminating Dining Tables with Candlelight
Displaying candles on your dining table adds a dramatic dimension and an inviting, warm ambience to your interiors.
The romantic light showcased by candles enhances the mood of any interior space. Incorporate candlesticks in elegant candelabras throughout the middle and sides of the table. You can also place candles on surrounding furniture and feature pieces for an added layer of light.
Incorporating Lighting Fixtures in Threes
Placing a three-wire pendant fixture above your dining table disperses the light equally and creates a definitive zone within the space.
Our collection of sensational three-wire vintage cluster chandelier lights makes an eye-catching statement over any dining table. Available in glass, metal and handcrafted wire shades, our three wire pendants are made to complement new or existing interiors.
If your interiors desire more than our three wire pendant lights, we offer an extensive range of five or nine wire pendant lights perfect for those wanting to create a dramatic statement over their dining table.
Subtle Accent Lighting with Dining Room Wall Lights
Lighting above dining tables can be supported by lighting fixtures such as wall and table lamps.
Wall lights can be used as subtle accent lighting that creates an effortless, relaxed ambience. Accent wall lighting can be matched with the lighting placed over the dining table to keep your interiors consistent, or if you prefer to combine modern with vintage, pair vintage wall lights with modern pendants for optimal depth and texture within the room.
