Hanging Rules: Entryway

Suspended from a long chain, this repro gaslight makes a lofty, two-story foyer feel cozy and welcoming.

If the ceiling is higher than 14 feet, the pendant's shade should hang at the midpoint between floor and ceiling. For 8-foot-high ceilings, the shade should be no closer than 6 inches from the ceiling and a minimum of 7 feet above the floor. Always center the fixture with the front door.
