Make a lasting impression with striking modern lighting in the entryway or foyer.

What Is Entryway & Foyer Lighting?
The varied options of pendant lighting and grand chandeliers that comprise the entry and foyer ceiling lights collection have typically vertically oriented proportions to complement those of a tall but narrow entryway. When combined with a pair of sconces on the wall, you'll guarantee ample illumination in a space that is typically meant for greetings and salutations. And if you have console tables or accent tables readily available in your entryway, you will love the splash of character a well-designed console lamp provides.
Where Entryway & Foyer Lighting Works Best
To make a statement of the style of your home when guests first enter, consider a large foyer chandelier. Chandeliers immediately convey your sense of style and offer a wealth of functional light output. Similar to the decorative impact found in a chandelier, you may also enjoy any of the available options of pendant lighting including large modern pendants and multi-light pendants. And if you do not have the ceiling height in your entryway for a hanging light, look to the selection of semi-flushmounts or recessed lighting for options that are mounted close to the ceiling or within the ceiling, taking up a minimal amount of space.
