Starting at the top of this example is a 3 drop pan flush mounted to the ceiling.  The shade holders are mounted to the pan with rods.  The total drop from the ceiling to the bottom of the shades in this example is approximately 22".  The drop from the pan to the shade holders can be adjusted by changing the length of the rod.  Some unique antique rod sets cannot be shortened.  Most unique antique rods can have the total drop increased with the addition of chain links at the top and bottom of the rod.

This configuration can be applied to all number of drops (2 drop, 3 drop, 4 or more drops). 

To configure this type of fixture you will need to select:

a pan,  type of rod,  type of shade holders (switched or un-switched),   a set of shades
