Clustered lighting has been a key interior trend for pretty much as long as we can remember. Introducing multiple shades to your space is not only a great way to introduce more light, but also a guaranteed way to make an eye-catching statement.
Here's our top tips on how to create a clustered lighting look in your interior...
Suit the space
The most important thing when considering trying out a new lighting look is to find a style that will complement your home. If you’ve got a Victorian or Georgian property with high ceilings or a sleek new apartment with a split-level room, clustered lighting can emphasise the vertical height of your interior.
For a more intimate and cosy feel, group your lights closer together, or to elongate a room hang them in a line, like Tom Raffield has done (above) with our No. 1 Giant Pendants in his own Grand Designs home.
We’ve been experimenting with mixed wood finishes for years; it's one of our favourite lighting looks. Varying colour, pattern, texture and style is essential in decorating, so forget matchy-matchy room schemes and don’t be afraid to mix Ash, Oak and Walnut wood lights together in a cluster.
See Tom Raffield's own living room and our Urchin Pendants (above) for inspiration.
Grouping pendants of different sizes or shapes – like we have done in our lighting installations – gives a sculptural aesthetic and unique quality to a room. Add space between pendants of different sizes to give the illusion that they are floating in space.
