And not only for high ceilings, leaving the cable somewhat long to the pendant lamps is a Nordic trend that we see more and more in our homes.
When decorating a home, the principle of proportionality is very important, large and open spaces correspond to furniture, accessories, and lamps that are larger than smaller homes.
Think for a moment of a small apartment with a very large sofa or the other way around, a giant apartment with a tiny sofa for a couple of seats, neither of the two would look good, nor would it be practical, visually it would be ridiculous. In this beautiful 115 m² open attic there are different heights and since the lamps in the common areas hang from the highest parts, they have tried to choose proportional models.
In the Nordic decorations, it is not as common as in Spain to have only one ceiling lamp to illuminate a room, it is illuminated by areas and there are usually several hanging lamps, to illuminate each specific area (here for example the dining table and the kitchen countertop). In addition, to that are added, several points of ambient light in the form of table lamps, floor lamps, or even candles, in general, each activity and time of day has lighting and all that is taken into account at the time to have all the necessary points of light.
Take a good look at each corner of this kitchen opens to the living room because there are several lamps scattered around the space, can you locate them all? Do you have many lamps scattered around the room? Do you leave the cord of the hanging lamps over the longest dining table, as the Nordics do?
