Window Lighting – Beautiful table lamps and pendant lights for window placement

Make it nice and cosy in the living room with some decorative lamps for the window. Whether you want to decorate with a table lamp on the window sill or a hanging window pendant, you can find inspiration and tips in our blog. Discover exciting and beautiful window lighting for your home and apartment, lookout for some new design contenders – or the older classics.

  • If you want to hang a pendant close to the window, select smaller size pendants.
  • Think about glare, try to find lamps that don’t make it impossible to look out of the window if it’s important to you.
  • Measure the window sill so that you are sure that any new table lamp will fit in front of the window.
  • If it is high between window sill and window, you can choose a table lamp that has a higher foot.
  • If you choose window pendants, you may also want to hang several at different heights or spread out along the window.

Create beautiful reflections and warm light with the elegant copper pendants from Tom Dixon hanging by the windowsill. The lamps are made in a complicated vacuum metallization that allows the lamps to reflect the rest of the room and create depth. Otherwise, the lamps will glow softly and throw most of the light directly downwards, which does not create a glare when, for example, they hang on the window sill.
