Many of today's light fixtures lend themselves to various types of installations. Some fixtures have multiple lights that can hang clustered together or, with the addition of a support frame, can be spread out in a more traditional chandelier fashion. Pendants can be grouped in a number of ways without requiring multiple holes in the ceiling by using a canopy accessory that attaches to a single electrical box.
Fixtures can also be hung in unexpected ways to add visual interest and function to any room. Consider flanking your fireplace with sconces, or hanging pendants above your bedside table to save space and add style.
