The Power of Three

Why three is the magic number…

Bringing celestial beauty to any home, the Loer Pendant Small - Trio Cluster is total eclipse beauty.

The ‘Rule of Three’ is a design principle which states that styling your interiors with odd numbers adds interest, energy, and balance to your space, whilst capturing the gaze of any visitors. One great thing about this idea is that you won't generally need to go out shopping for new items, you can simply use the beautiful pieces you already own and apply the rules to make small, but impactful, changes…

A light touch

Lighting is arguably the most important feature of any space. Whilst one suspended ceiling design can be highly effective, three wooden ceiling lights can be more appealing and efficient.

The No.1 Pendant Range - Trio Cluster enhances your space with a textured display of light and shadow.

Cluster lighting is a great addition to large, open plan spaces such as living rooms, entranceways, and staircases. The tiered effect of the cluster lighting will draw eyes up through your space, filling the space with friendly form and welcoming illumination. Our new Loer Pendant Small – Trio Cluster is perfectly at home within soothing spaces, whilst our No. 1 Pendant Range – Trio Cluster is great for adding drama and character to your home.

Another way to bring the Rule of Three to your lighting, is through a series of wooden lampshades equally spaced above your dining table or kitchen island. This trio of designer ceiling lights will not only provide your space with ample task lighting but will also create a peaceful balance within usually bustling interiors and be extremely aesthetically pleasing.
