Modern pendants prove art isn't restricted to just the walls.
Why We Love Pendant Lighting
Pendant lights, hanging lights and suspensions can help personalize a space and put your sense of style on display. Contemporary pendant lights give a room a unique sense of structure and substance, showing funky and sometimes fascinatingly strange shapes. Pendants set the tone for whatever room or environment they are in and whether contemporary or not, these hanging ceiling fixtures create a sense of collected calm that is appropriate for the room. Hanging lamps also offer an alternative to traditional chandeliers or portable table lamps and floor lamps, contributing illumination from a single light source rather than many.
Where Pendant Lighting Works Best
Since these hanging pendants offer mainly downward-focused lighting, they are the ideal option for dining room lighting and kitchen lighting when used over the dining table or for decorative island lighting. Long, linear-shaped pendant designs work well over kitchen islands or you can string together a cluster of mini pendant lights for exceptional downlighting. Suddenly, the common dining room is a posh hangout for family and friends underneath any of the pendant lights featured here. In the entryway or foyer, a large pendant makes a welcoming statement that sometimes cannot be achieved with a traditional chandelier. Consider hanging a pendant in the living room as a conversation piece and if you have the ceiling height in the bedroom, any of the adjustable pendant lights offer you the option to choose the suspension length. Wherever you need a decorative hanging fixture in your home or commercial location, a pendant is sure to provide ample lighting and style.
A Pendant Light for Every Style
This collection of pendants address a variety of interior design styles including contemporary, traditional, nautical, transitional, mid-century modern, art glass designs and more. For a contemporary chic light that meets style akin to the 1950s, you will want to see the mid-century pendant lighting available from Jonathan Adler. For a beautiful brass or clean copper fixture, look to the pendants available in the Tom Dixon collection and if your space follows a Scandinavian theme, check out the Poul Henningsen pendants from Louis Poulsen including the iconic Artichoke Light and PH-5 Pendant. Finally, on the traditional and transitional spectrum of interior design, your living area will benefit from the pendants by Feiss Lighting and Arteriors. For any interior style, you'll find the perfect pendant here.
