The flexibility of modern pendant lighting has made the product a go-to choice for designers and a staple in residential and commercial projects alike.
Understanding pendant lighting
Hanging lights have been a fixture in interior design for centuries. While elaborate chandeliers have long been in vogue, simpler pendant lights have emerged as an extremely popular alternative. Requiring only a bulb and a shade suspended from the ceiling, these light fixtures are versatile and suited for a large number of applications. Pendants are also easy to install—doing so simply requires connecting a mounting bracket to a junction box in the ceiling.
As modern pendant lights have surged in popularity, their aesthetic possibilities have continued to grow. Suspended lamps are available in many styles, shapes, and finishes. From large domes and elaborate shades to small clusters or simple bulbs, pendants offer numerous options that work for both contemporary and classic interiors. Contemporary hanging lights can be made of metal, glass, polycarbonate, and more, and come in a full range of sizes. Endless design selections mean that there is a pendant style for everyone.
Where pendant lights are used
Modern pendant light fixtures are a natural choice for residential and commercial projects. Hanging fixtures are perfect to put above spots like countertops, dining tables, or desks, where direct lighting is needed to prepare a meal, enjoy dinner, or get work done. Additionally, they can be installed in bedrooms, corridors, and entryways, where they will brighten a space with an ambient glow and create a striking point of interest.
