Spacing Lights Over A Dining Table

Dear Style Studio,

I am thinking of these lights (the Eldridge Pendants in medium size) in a large room over a 10-foot dining table.

Would two of them be best and how far apart would I put the junction boxes in the ceiling? The ceiling is 12 feet high.

Dear Martha,

For your size table, two medium Eldridge Pendants would be great and we would recommend hanging them approximately 26 to 28 inches apart.

If you want to have fun with proportion, consider the larger Eldridge Pendants spaced about the same distance.

Either way, the results should prove to be modern and fresh!

Happy Decorating!
