Now comes the best part, you will see which lamp shape you like the most on our website!
Then you decide whether you are going to group 2 or 3 different sizes of the same shape, or use 3 of the same size lamp.
Everything is possible, we have often applied all variations and there is no right or wrong choice here.
If you have a usable diameter of 70cm for your group of 3 lights, you might think you need to divide 70cm by 3 to determine the maximum width per bulb.
That is not true.
The lamps will be hung at different heights, so they partially overlap in width.
That looks the best, then there is a cohesion in the group.
You can roughly say that you have to add the width of 2 lamps, plus a little extra cm.
So above the table of 80 cm, where we want to use 70 cm in diameter, we can place 3 lamps of about 33 cm in diameter.
After all, two lamps measure 66 cm and then we still have 2 cm of play for each lamp that will be hung on the left or right.
Combine different shapes of lamps?
It is also possible to use 3 different shapes together in a composition, but that requires a bit more imagination. This variant is not always easy to estimate, not all shapes of the lamps reinforce each other equally well. There are some that are just perfect for this purpose, see pictures below. But again, it is also a matter of following your own taste of course.
One last practical tip
If you've made your choice, but there is still a bit of doubt, I have another tip to help with that.
Take 3 plastic bags and blow them up to the size of the lamps you want to use.
Have someone hold the bags for you (someone with three arms is preferred ;)) at the desired height and assess whether these volumes are correct.
Take some distance, view the composition from different places in the house.
Sit on the sofa, do the plastic bags / lamps feel good when you look from a lower position?
If you follow these steps, it really cannot fail, we guarantee a wonderful result!
