Today's selection of unique pendants means art is no longer restricted to the walls.
Why We Love Pendants
Pendants personalize a space. Contemporary pendants give a room a unique sense of structure and substance, showing off funky, sometimes fascinatingly strange shapes. Setting a tone for the environment they're in, pendant lighting (whether contemporary or not) really creates that sense of collected calm or artsy ambience appropriate for the room. They also offer an alternative to table lamps and chandeliers, contributing illumination from a single source rather than many.
Where Pendant Lights Work Best
Since these hanging lamp fixtures offer mainly downward-focused lighting, they're great for dining areas. Suddenly the simple dining room or kitchen is a posh hangout for family and friends underneath a pendant from Luceplan or Louis Poulsen. Living rooms also benefit from hanging lights; the eye is naturally drawn to the pendant light's form, allowing guests to appreciate the room's scale and overall layout. Whatever the style may be, from a mid-century look to something more transitional, you'll find the pendant you need here.
Other Great Options
LED pendant lights offer the same awesome style and sculptural presence with the added benefit of being environmentally friendly. Try adding an LED pendant from LBL Lighting, Moooi or Tech Lighting to make your space contemporary and energy efficient. Don't you love it when modern fashion and Mother Nature go hand in hand?
