When it comes to my interior styling posts, the dining area has been sadly neglected! I thought it was about time I gave it some attention, especially seen as it's such an important area where we often congregate for family meals, dinner parties or just to hang out with the paper or laptop and a cuppa! Of course furniture is a major component, and I'm the first to admit ours needs a big overhaul. I live in hope that I'll one day own my dream table, preferably of the large, solid wood variety, and a set of Hans Wegner Wishbone Chairs. Today however I've decided to focus on pendant lighting as I'm on the lookout for our new house. These images from my dining Pinterest board represent some of my favourite styles.
I can't go past the simplicity of single hanging bulbs, as shown in the examples above and below. The diamond shaped bulbs above are so pretty, while the cords and fittings below add a pop of bright colour.
Brass, copper and gold lighting is so on trend right now. I love everything from the Tom Dixon range.
You can't go wrong with a pair of black industrial lights suspended above bright white interiors and colourful accessories.
Taking inspiration from the images above, I've rounded up some stellar online finds.
