Pendant lights are an easy way to inject some vibrant
character into any room. These hanging lights come in a variety of styles,
colors and materials. These fixtures are typically suspended from the ceiling
by a chain, cord or metal rod. They can be hung as a single light fixture to
highlight a particular place like the dining room table, or hung in a series to
provide adequate lighting over kitchen islands, bars, vanities and more.
The versatile nature and style variety of pendant lighting
allows these fixtures to provide much more than functional lighting, often
acting as statement pieces on their own. Differing shapes, colors and materials
can be used in combination to form a dramatic sculptural focal point in a room.
Their diverse nature also makes pendant lights adaptable to just about any
design scheme. Whether your space is modern and minimalistic, eclectic and
playful, or rustic and warm, you’re bound to find a pendant lighting fixture
that works well with your unique look.
If your space boasts a contemporary style for instance, you
may want to opt for a sleek linear chrome or brushed nickel fixture that
complements your home’s cool, clean aesthetic. On the flipside, if your style
is whimsical and quirky, this décor is ideal for colorful glass pendant
lighting. Staggering pendant lights over kitchen islands and other focal points
is a great way to create a fun and inspired look. Mixing different finishes or
different sizes of pendant lights is another technique that can be used to give
your interiors a creative and artistic flair.
