A bold way to impress your guests is with a central lighting pendant as the feature of the room hanging over the dining table. These vibrant pendants from the Satellite range allow a subtle splash of colour whilst being reminiscent of an era filled with bell bottoms and shag carpeting to give your room a unique edge.

It is important to ask yourself when designing this central space: how will it all work together? Often the dining room is more than just a space to eat as it also functions as a space to entertain. Therefore to ensure your room is balanced, you may need simple lights for the areas where furniture or artwork are the features. This wall light has an inconspicuous simplicity yet maintains a slight quirkiness to add interest to your room.

It's crucial to keep in mind the impact of surrounding lighting if it's part of your open plan living. Often your kitchen is adjoining the dining area and you may be able to push up your light levels at the dining table simply by turning the kitchen lights on. Therefore, you may only need decorative light fixtures to enhance the aesthetics of your space, such as these playful Eliah pieces.
