LED Linear Pendants Design Guide

Our range of solid timber LED linear pendants are available in many bespoke details, giving you the ability to perfectly design, style and light your interior space.
Timber Species
Our lighting range is available in a variety of solid hardwood timbers. We primarily use Australian hardwoods sourced from Australian suppliers. We also use rare and imported timber species which are sourced in small batches or sourced locally from fallen logs and specialist suppliers. Please contact us if you are after a particular timber or finish for your project. Read more about our solid timber options here.
Pendant Length
Our timber LED linear pendants are available in set standard lengths from 1200mm to 3000mm. For bespoke sizes, we build in increments of 100mm. If you are hanging your pendant over a dining table or kitchen island, we recommend having an inset of approx. 200 to 400mm on each side – so if your bench is 3000mm, then a pendant of 2500mm or 2800mm at the longest would be suitable. If you are unsure, send us an image or render of your kitchen and we will do our best to suggest a length.
Cable Drop Length
Pendants suspended over a dining table or kitchen island should sit about 600-800mm above the surface you are lighting.
Most of our LED linear pendants (like the Tenn and Hollow) are suspended on a 3mm conductive coax cable which is easily adjustable at the ceiling. This makes getting your drop height nice and easy, just tell us the approx height you are needing, and we always supply a bit extra so you can adjust the height up or down to suit your preferences. Pendants which are suspended on a 8mm or 10mm rod will need an exact drop height upon ordering, so it’s best to consider your space holistically and choose a drop height which will suit.
Colour Temperature
Colour temperature is indicated in a unit called Kelvin (K). A low colour temperature creates a warm and inviting lighting effect, while a high colour temperature creates a cool, more energising effect. Generally, intimate spaces like dining areas and living rooms lend themselves to warmer colour temperatures (2700K-3000K), while office spaces, kitchens, and bathrooms are a bit cooler (3000K-4000K) to give the feeling of cleanliness and activity.
Our pendants are available in 2700K (Warm White), 3000K (Bright White) or 4000K (Cool White) and we can also offer bespoke colour temperatures on request. For a happy medium, we recommend 3000K, which tends to work well in most environments and is the most popular choice for our pendants. We recommend consulting your architect, builder, interior designer or lighting designer if you are unsure of the right choice for your home. If you have other light fixtures in a space, be sure to match all of your colour temperatures to create a cohesive mood.
Cable Colour
Our LED linear pendants are suspended on 2.6mm conductive coax cable. Most pendants will be suspended on 2 cables, but pendants 2.8m and 3.0m long will have 3 suspensions unless otherwise requested. Our cable colour is available in Silver or Black.
Trim Colour
For our LED linear timber lighting pendants, the trim colour refers to the cable grip and the aluminium profile surrounding the LED. For the cable grip, the standard colours are solid brass, powder coated white or powdercoated black. For the aluminium trim, the standard colours are anodised black, or powder coated white. Custom colours and finishes are available on request.
