16. What are the mounting options for the pendant fixtures?
The lights on this website are sold with a standard cable, with color and finish as shown in the product pictures.
The cable length, unless otherwise specified, is 150cm (60 inches). The canopy supplied is a standard canopy with a diameter of approximately 6 inches and a height of approximately 1 inch, white in color.
At the customer's request we can perform the following product customizations:
- Mount different canopies, even thinner and with a more accurate and modern design.
- Customize the color of the cable and the lining material: cloth or metal.
- Prepare the cable length to suit the needs of your interior.
This single pendant customization and preparation has an extra cost of $150 plus the cost of the components to be installed (custom cables and canopies).
Other types of more complex customizations such as very large canopies with many lights, can be performed on request. In that case, the cost will be estimated based on the complexity of the work to be performed and the cost of the components required.

This depends on several factors: your ceiling height and where the fixture will hang, for example over a table or counter. All stem-mounted fixtures are made to order. The information we need is the OAL the OVERALL LENGTH. To determine this simply measure the distance from the ceiling to where you would like the bottom of the fixture to be. We will do the math there is no need to subtract diffuser measurements.
