If one has decorations hanging down in one’s Sukka below 4 tefachim and within 3 tefachim of that to the sides is additional decorations to we apply lavud to say that whatever is below that is not longer a kosher part of the sukka?

Answer:

No, as a general rule we do not say “lavud” for purposes of chumra, but only for purposes of kula, and therefore if the decoration itself is not big enough to pose a problem (less than 4 tefachim) lavud would not create a problem in the Sukkah (though one should preferably not sit directly under the decoration if it is more than 4 tefachim beneath the sechach).

Best wishes.
