The Perfect Pendant

We’re pretty hung up on the ultra-versatile pendant. As an alternative to traditional chandeliers or even a table or floor lamp, pendants offer a solution for any room. And a wide range of shapes, styles, sizes, colors and designs make it easy to find one (or more!) you’ll think was made just for you. Below, explore our guide to finding the perfect pendant for every room.



The look you want and the light you need: Hanging lamps effortlessly bridge form and function in any space.


Try: Mini pendants

They may be small, but mini pendants can pack a mighty design punch. Try two to five 8- or 10-inch mini pendants over a kitchen island or bar to provide a decorative feature and functional lighting for food prep.

Dining Room

Try: A medium pendant

A medium pendant light over a dining table is a modern alternative to the chandelier. Choose one that fits your style, whether a casual drum or a statement-making design that changes the look of the whole room.


Try: Mini pendant

Sure, a pendant as an overhead light is pretty standard, but we like this unexpected placement in a bedroom design: adding a hanging lamp over each nightstand (instead of table or wall lights) for a surprising design element.

Entry & Foyer

Try: Multi-light pendant

The nature of a multi-light pendant—generally a cluster or line of mini pendants in one fixture—provide more light than a single pendant. Hanging one or more in an entryway adds a dramatic effect to the threshold of your home.

Living Room

Try: A large pendant

It's often the centerpiece of the home, so why not have a light fixture that does the same? A large pendant in the center of the living room helps set the tone for gathering around in the room where life happens.


Try: An outdoor pendant

Whether over a dining table or brightening up a covered space, outdoor pendants bring a different, decorative element to a porch or patio. These pendants are wet-rated and designed especially for outdoor use.
