Single pendants or cage-style fixtures look best when they are used together to create a more dramatic style. Depending on the scale of the overall fixture and the size of the surface underneath, you'll want to make sure you coordinate the right number of fixtures. For example, if the scale of the pendant is small, you might want to use three pendants hanging together instead of just two. On the same note, if the pendants are larger, two may be the perfect blend. Allow at least 30" - 36" between the bottom of the pendants and the top of the surface. When installing multiple pendants, make sure the widest parts of the fixtures are spaced a minimum of 30" apart.
