CHAIN for lighting
Our lighting chain is, first and foremost, made to be used with our hooked light bulb holders and ceiling roses to hold heavier light fittings. If you’ve got a factory-style enamel light shade, or a glass one for that matter, fabric cable alone may not be enough to hold it. Lighting chain is the perfect reinforcement. Not only does it lend strength to your fabric cable, but it also makes your light fitting look altogether more industrial. We have been known to add a length of chain to a light for purely decorative reasons.
Fabric cable can require additional strength when hanging heavier pendant lights. Electricians often use our lighting chain for the job. its strong links loop over the hooks of a hooked bulb holder and ceiling rose and this is what adds the extra support. Alternatively, you can get creative and use lighting chain decoratively to achieve a more warehouse industrial look. Many customers use it outdoors, as well as inside. We’ve seen it casually ‘thrown’ into a glass bowl (aka carefully arranged to look like it was just left there) and also wrapped around things to ‘decorate’ them. In fact, you may have come across this chain as a decorative chain for lighting or even chandelier chain.
Using our lighting chain in conjunction with fabric cable is a good idea when hanging heavier lights because it makes them more secure. Although many people use lighting chain just to make their lights look more substantial without needing the functional benefits. We do just love the simple combination of chain with fabric cable. Beautiful. Fit one of our gorgeous vintage bulbs to finish off your unique light.
Our lighting chain needs a hooked light bulb holder and ceiling rose from which to attach. We have plenty to choose from, both styles and finishes, so there will be something that’s perfect for your interior.
