Why We Love Asian Style Pendant Lights
Asian style pendant lights take the design principles of Asian style lighting and put them at their best. These delicate fixtures are bright and airy and help create a warm ambiance in the home. Here, you’ll find clean and harmonious lines and natural, earthy hues. Many of these lights also incorporate the use of organic elements like bamboo or stone that contrast with lighter elements like silken fabrics or rice paper shades. Harmonious designs like this keep your home looking balanced and elegant. Hang Asian style pendant lights above your kitchen island, down hallways, or above a sink in the bathroom as vanity lighting. They’ll bring a welcome addition to any space.
Decor that Works Well with Asian Pendant Lighting
The clean lines and warm light of Asian hanging lights pair well with many other decor styles, but if you really want to create a cohesive design theme throughout your home, we recommend sticking with similar elements. For this reason, we believe that Asian chandeliers and Asian wall sconces are perfect partners for Asian pendant lights. A chandelier is perfect for larger spaces that are more formal, while wall sconces work well in small areas. You can also focus on one element of the pendant lights that you like. For example, if what drew you to one was its incorporation of a natural element, like bamboo, a bamboo pendant light is a great way to add a light with a similar style that’s not an exact copy.
Favorite Asian Inspired Pendant Lights Colors & Shapes
Asian inspired pendant lights primarily feature warm, neutral tones like soft browns and ambers, and it’s one of the many things we love about them. A warm amber shade creates a welcome ambiance and copper-toned finishes give the fixture an exotic feel. But, we can’t deny that the fixtures with clean, white finishes are very cool and fresh. You’ll still find the same harmonious lines and use of natural materials, just with a more contemporary finish. Regardless of finish, you’ll have plenty of exciting shapes to choose from. The tiered triangular shades feel more traditional while paper origami-esque silhouettes give you something to get excited about.
How to Choose the Best Asian Style Pendant Lights
If you’re purchasing an Asian pendant light to complement an outdoor space such as a garden (which we highly recommend) make sure that they were designed to handle exposure to the elements, especially water. It’s also important to consider the type of lighting you want from these fixtures. The majority of them supply a soft, warm shine diffused by an amber or rice paper shade. If you want task lighting or just bright general lighting, look for a pendant without something to disperse the light. You should also consider whether you want one pendant or several. If you’re hanging them in succession, say over a kitchen island or down a hall, it’s usually best to go with a smaller option.
