The light is hanging vertically fine and it's absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for your help in this regard.
In fact I like it so much, I'm pretty sure I'll want more for our lounge/dining room. And I've also seen some lights I like for our stairs and landings. I won't order till I've decorated the next bit - will probably be closer to the middle of the year, but if you don't mind I'll keep your email address and contact you then.
Many thanks again.
