Crystal remains a popular choice for lighting fixtures and is used across the style spectrum. In this contemporary bathroom the crystal chandelier has a modern presentation drawing attention to the underlit wave ceiling.
A floor lamp nestled against a window is a smart substitute for daylight so that when the sun goes down an ambient glow will pour in from a similar direction to balance the central light overhead.
When hanging a light over a table or a kitchen island 28 to 34 inches is the recommended distance from the bottom of the light to the surface of the table or island. However the size of the light makes a difference. In general a smaller light can be moved lower and a larger light can be moved higher.
