I love hosting a dinner party.  In fact, one of the pre-requisites when I was looking for an apartment many years ago, was that I had to be able to fit in a 10 seater dining room table!

A successful dinner party is a combination of good food, good company and setting the right mood.  If you are lucky enough to have a proper dining room with specific mood lighting hanging above your dining table, preferably on a dimmer, count yourself very lucky.  If like me you had to come up with a plan B… I introduce the standing arch lamp.


This is a great way of adding additional mood lighting above the table, allowing you to switch off the overhead lights, and create a more intimate setting.
