Medium & Large Pendants
Medium and large pendant lights give off just as much light as a chandelier, but in a streamlined fashion well-suited for contemporary lighting schemes. As opposed to the multiple arms and lamp shades on a chandelier, medium and large pendants group on or more light sources all under one shade. And, while simple of terms of their singularity, such shades offer infinite decorative possibilities.
You can find a medium or large pendant lamp to complement any style of decor, with designs ranging from sleek metal drum pendant lights to shimmering art glass bowl pendants, and from crystalline cylinders to crisp cotton cubes.
Where Medium & Large Pendant Lights Work Best
The generous size and luxurious materials used to make pendant lighting make them ideal in plaecs where you might ordinarily find chandeliers, namely, in entryways, foyers, large kitchens and cooking areas, dining rooms and even in great rooms or living rooms. Where there is available ceiling space, the room will benefit from the decorative impact of a medium or large hanging light. And in commercial spaces, including modern offices, restaurants and hotels, a large ceiling light makes a welcoming statement and puts your decorative style on display.

Whether you need a large ceiling light fixture to fit a transitional entryway or a couple of medium-sized suspensions for a modern dining room, you are guaranteed to find a variety of stylish options in this assortment.

Other Great Options
You can find a similar amount of light output and lighting coverage with a linear pendant light. Often rectangular in shape, linear suspension lighting is ideal for hanging over dining tables, kitchen islands and pool tables. Conversely, you may want to achieve ample light coverage through multiple light sources and you can do so by hanging mini pendant lights or a couple of small chandeliers.
