Choosing the right Ceiling Canopy

When it comes to choosing a ceiling light, style, design, size and finish are key factors in the decision making process, however it is equally important to consider the location of your fitting and the right mounting canopy to create the look you want to achieve.

Home to the not so aesthetic wiring and hardware, the canopies at Fine Art Hand Crafted Lighting are an integral part of the design of the chandelier or pendant. Not only do they reflect design details from the fitting itself but they also incorporate features such as additional downlighting.

Offered in an array of shapes, sizes and finishes the canopies are designed to accommodate different ceiling types, mounting locations and also offer multiple hanging options to achieve a desired look.

Button Canopy

The discreet, button canopy requires minimum space and offers maximum flexibility, suitable for small spaces, narrow beams or for multiple closely spaced fittings. This fitting requires the installer to provide a transformer in the ceiling void above.

Dual Mount Canopy

The dual mount canopy is by far the most popular as it conceals the transformer and wiring within the canopy itself. Attached directly to the ceiling, the dual mount can be supplied as a round, square or rectangular canopy. Available in various sizes it is perfect for creating your own lighting installation over a dining table, island or to make a statement in an entrance or stairway.

For interiors that require a flush mounted canopy the dual mount canopy can be supplied without the inset side wall.

From tray to vaulted ceilings, beams to flat ceilings see below how designers have incorporated the Delphi Pendant into their interiors using different canopies to suit the ceiling type and achieve their desired look.

As with all Fine Art Handcrafted Lighting products, there is the option to provide canopies in any shape, size or finish. See below for some examples of bespoke pendants with canopies that have been created especially for client projects.
